Over 55 and looking to unlock some of the equity in your home?
Equity release can help. Equity Release enables you to free up some equity in your home without committing to a monthly repayment. At The Mortgage Bubble, we offer expert equity release advice for the best long-term investments.
Home equity release is secured against your property
What makes this different is you do not have to make regular monthly payments during your lifetime. You can opt instead to service the interest through your choosing.
If no payment is preferred, interest accrues on the loan amount. The total is then repaid either from the sale of your property, in the event of your retirement, passing or upon entering long-term care. You will always remain the owner of the property until such an event.
With this plan, no interest payment goes to the lender. Until the property sells, the surviving borrower goes into long-term care or passes away, all interest is compound.
The borrower can pay interest charged by direct debit to the lender, avoiding an increase to the loan. Some lenders allow some of the capital regularly to reduce the loan.
Regular Income Plan
If the borrower does not require a lump sum, but wishes to supplement their income, they can receive regular payment through an equity release plan.
Similar to the roll up plan, a draw down life time mortgage means you can access your money more flexibly. Rather than just receiving a lump sum, you can release your funds over time or whenever you need. Because you only pay interest on the funds you have drawn down, these plans often prove to be more cost-effective.
Lenders will expect you to keep your home in good condition. You might need to set aside some money to do this. If this could pose a problem, an equity release scheme might not be suitable.
