Probably the most popular form of equity release is a Lifetime Mortgage because you’ll still own your home and there are typically no monthly payments to worry about. In simple terms it’s a loan secured against your property and repaid when your plan comes to an end which is usually when you pass away or enter long-term care.
In addition, plans that meet the Equity Release Council standards come with the ‘no negative equity’ guarantee. This means you’ll never owe more than the value of your home and, therefore, any debt you accrue will not be passed on to your family.
Other types of equity release There are other ways to release equity tied up in your property and these will always be considered if Lifetime Mortgages aren’t right for you. For example, home reversion schemes and retirement interest only mortgages.
