What is Equity Release

An equity release product allows you to access the value (cash) tied up in your home. Rather than leaving the cash tied up in your home, more and more people are choosing to release this money giving them cash to fund retirement dreams, pay off debts or help out family members. You must be over 55 and seek advice from a financial adviser before you can access an equity release product. There are a range of products available which allow you to release money from your home either as a lump sum or in regular smaller amounts, known as drawdown.
