If you are 55+ years old with a property, located in the UK, that is worth at least £70,000 you should be able to release the equity tied up in your home, for whatever needs you may have. The most popular type of equity release plan is a lifetime mortgage plan. This plan allows you to retain ownership of your home with a loan that is secured against your home.
With a lifetime mortgage plan, you can release a one-off lump sum or a series of lump sums as part of a drawdown lifetime mortgage plan. A drawdown lifetime mortgage plan allows you to release lump sums in stages, and only pay interest on the amount that you have drawn down. A home reversion plan involves selling all, or part of, your home for a lump sum. Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and could also affect your entitlement to many means-tested benefits
