Is equity release right for me?
Equity release can be a good way to get cash from your home’s value if you’re over 55 years old. But it’s a major financial decision with several important aspects to consider.
If you’re thinking about equity release, check out these frequent questions
Our experts know all about equity release and frequently answer questions from homeowners about all steps in the process. Here are three questions that we get the most often:
✅ How do I know I can trust an equity release company?
You can check to see whether the company is a registered member of the Equity Release Council that sets the rules and regulations for such businesses. You can trust the companies registered with ERC but you should typically avoid a company not listed with the ERC.
✅ Will I be able to stay in my home under an equity release plan?
Yes. Equity release agreements allow you to stay in your property for the time that you are alive or until you enter into any kind of elder medical care facility like a residential home. But be sure to abide by all the terms of your contract as you do risk losing the right to live in your home if you violate any of these provisions.
✅ Are there other ways to get cash from my home's value quickly?
Yes. One option is to sell your property to a licensed buying company – they’ll pay you on an accelerated schedule in cash, with no fees, to buy your home. Or you could consider selling at auction on a specific date in the near future, but remember you’ll have to subtract the auctioneer’s fees from the final auction sale price.
