What does equity release involve?

Equity release involves turning the equity you have in your property into disposable cash. The ‘equity’ element that is available is calculated by looking at the value of your property minus any remaining mortgage. There is no tax to pay on the money released. The most common type of scheme is the Lifetime Mortgage. This enables you to release a lump sum from the value of your property, whilst still retaining 100% ownership. The amount released plus the interest accrued is repayable out of your estate when you pass away or if you have to move into long term care.

Our residential conveyancing department is also able to provide legal advice on Drawdown Lifetime Mortgages and Home Reversion Plans.

Equity release is a specialist area, so turn to Stephensons for expert legal advice on the options available.

If you would like more information on releasing the equity in your home contact us on 0203 816 0076 for a free, no obligation initial chat with one of our legal advisors, or request more information via our online enquiry form.
