Equity Release plans have been available in the financial marketplace for about 15 years. However, if you took out a plan then chances are that you would have been offered much higher interest rates compared to the lower fixed rates available today. What’s more, in the early days of Equity Release, loan-to-property values were lower, meaning smaller loans were available compared to current provisions.

If you have an existing Equity Release plan with terms that you are unhappy with, perhaps now is a good time to review your plan to see if you can get a better deal.

By switching your Equity Release plan, you may be able to:

Obtain lower interest rates

If you remortgage to a more competitive Equity Release scheme, you could reduce the amount of interest you will be paying in the future. Switching from a poor-value scheme gives you the opportunity to make substantial savings, even in the case where your current provider charges hefty exit penalties.

Release more tax free cash

While switching to a better Equity Release plan, you may have the facility to borrow further funds immediately, or take advantage of flexible drawdown facilities. You may be able to pay off the interest without penalty, and receive better terms and conditions overall. It’s always worth checking to see what’s on offer.
