Many people in retirement are finding that their income has not kept pace with the cost of living and they increasingly finding their income is not adequate for their needs. Ideally, retirement should be a time to be able to enjoy yourself and do the things you have always wanted to do.
If you own your home and are over 55, equity release could be a potential solution to this problem. It enables you to unlock some of the value within your house to provide you with a lump sum or an income. You can still live in your home, do not have to make repayments and can never owe more than the value of your house.
However, the decision to utilise equity release should not be taken lightly, and there is lots of factors that need to looked at first before it could be considered appropriate. We can discuss and explain all of the issues and impacts involved and help you understand whether this is a suitable option for you.
