Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
Equity Release will reduce the value of your estate and can affect your eligibility for means tested benefits
So what are the main types of Equity Release schemes are available?
LIFETIME MORTGAGES These are special types of loans, usually designed to run for the rest of your life. You borrow money secured against the value of your home to give you a lump sum now or a regular income; you do not make mortgage repayments to the lender. The loan and accrued interest is repaid to the lender when you die or you move into a residential care home. You continue to own your own home.
HOME REVERSION PLANS These schemes involve the sale of all or part of your home to a reversion company in return for a cash sum or regular income and the right to live rent-free in your home for the rest of your life. After you die, the house is sold and the value of the proportion of your home that you have sold is paid to the reversion company.
