Equity Release

We appreciate that choosing to release money from your home is a big decision and it is important to realise that there is more than one option available. Therefore, it is important to get advice to find out all the options available alongside all the benefits and considerations.

Modern equity release products are different from how they used to be years ago. You may have heard some horror stories of the past, where people inherited a significant debt as well as losing their parents’ property. That can no longer happen because:
– all policies now come with a ‘no negative equity’ guarantee
– the market is fully regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority who insist on additional training and certification specifically to be able to sell and advise on equity release products
– by choosing a member of The Equity Release Council, such as ourselves (see our page on their website) you know that we have agreed to abide by the Council rules and have signed up to the Statement of Principles.
