Funding for a better financial future
What is Equity Release?
In a nutshell, Equity Release is a way for age 55 and over to unlock the value of your property and turn it into a cash lump sum. You can do this through a number of policies which let you access – or 'release' – the equity (cash) tied up in your home. You don’t need to have fully paid off your mortgage to apply.

To boost disposable income in retirement
To gift to family (living inheritance)
To fund a holiday of a lifetime
For general lifestyle (home furnishings, car, etc)

Still retain ownership of the property
Subject to valuation. Eligible to release more in the future
Only payable back upon death of second partner or going into long term care
