By far the most popular type of Equity Release is a Lifetime Mortgage. With a Lifetime Mortgage you take out a mortgage secured on your home. You can choose to ring-fence some of the value of your property as an inheritance for your family. You can choose to make interest only repayments or let the interest roll-up. The loan amount and any accrued interest is repaid to the lender when you die or move into long-term care.
Home reversion scheme
Less popular are Home Reversion schemes where you agree to sell part or all of your home to a home reversion provider in return for a lump sum or regular payments. You become a tenant in your own property & have the right to continue living in your property rent free until you die or enter into long term care, you have to agree to maintain and insure your property. You can ring-fence a percentage of your property for later use, possibly for inheritance.
There is much to consider & Equity Release is not suitable for everyone, it's important to receive professional advice & also important to talk to your family & beneficiaries to obtain their views.
