FAQs for An Equity Release Broker

What is equity release?
Equity release is a way to unlock the capital tied up in your home in one cash lump sum or in several smaller amounts, or as a combination of both. You can only get equity release if you own your home and are over the aged of 55. Learn more...

What Costs are Involved with Equity Release?
There are costs involved with equity release. These are the fees for independent financial advice, the mortgage lenders charge and the property valuation or survey fee required to get a current market value of your property.

There is also the interest accumulated through lifetime mortgage plans, but this isn’t an immediate cost – it is rolled-up until the end of the loan (when you die), at which point it is payable by your estate.

What is an equity broker?

An equity broker is a completely independent intermediary for clients seeking to buy, sell or review investment products. An equity broker offers market intelligence and acts as an agent for the customer, providing personalised advice. Equity brokers make their money by charging a fee or commission for tailored equity solutions.

Do I have to pay tax on the equity released?
No, you do not pay any direct tax on the money you receive from an equity release plan. It is not classed as a capital gain because you are borrowing money against your home. However, if you invest your tax-free cash in ISAs or other savings accounts, you may have to pay tax on any growth. Releasing equity from your house will reduce the value of your estate so it could actually reduce your Inheritance Tax bill when you die.
