How equity release works

Mr & Mrs Smith, Worthing

Professional service throughout, excellent support, patience and guidance during the whole process. Advice given was honest, open and easy to understand. We would highly recommend John to anyone – moving is a stressful business, but with the service that John offers it is so much easier!

Mr V, Bristol,

John originally arranged an Equity Release for my wife and myself a few years ago and handled everything in a quick and efficient manner, and now after 55 years of marriage and sadly living alone, I decided to take as much equity as possible out of my house.
Taking out a second equity mortgage seemed to throw up every possible hurdle imaginable. John, completely unperturbed, ploughed on in his inimitable and determined manner, finally locating a suitable provider and monitoring the progress of the solicitor he very knowledgeably recommended.
To sum up, John has been the ultimate professional and did absolutely everything to ensure the success of the transaction.
Thankyou John.

Is equity release right for you?

It’s common for people over the age of 55 to have a significant amount of their money tied up in the value of their home, meaning that they cannot use it for other investments. Equity release allows people to take a lump sum or series of smaller financial instalments out of their property so that they can access their money without moving house.

Equity release is frequently used to fund one-off expenses, such as a new car, a big family holiday or significant home improvement. It can also be used to boost lifestyle costs and add to any other retirement income as a way of living more comfortably in later years. Different equity release schemes work in various ways, so it’s important to do your research and seek professional advice about how your finances might be affected in the future, before making a commitment.

I have been working in financial services for over 18 years and have helped countless clients understand their options when it comes to equity release. If you are considering how an equity release scheme might benefit your situation, I would be happy to provide you with an independent assessment to help you make a decision. I can also provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate of the equity you may be able to release from your home. Call me on 01903 890 660 or fill in the form on this page and I will respond as soon as possible.
