Understand the different types of Equity Release.

Equity release may involve a home reversion plan or a lifetime mortgage, which is secured against your property and will reduce the value of your estate and impact funding long-term care. Equity release requires paying off any existing mortgage. Any money released, plus accrued interest would be repaid upon death, or moving into long-term care.

Lifetime mortgage

A loan secured against your home. The loan and any interest accrued is repaid when you pass away or move into long-term care, unless you repay sooner.

With a lifetime mortgage you have the option to take the funds as a lump sum or defer some of the monies for when they are required.

Home reversion

This is when you sell all or part of the value of your home to achieve a tax-free cash lump sum but retain the ability to remain in the property for life. And you retain a beneficial interest in the part of the property that you were not required to sell.

Please note that all equity release funds are currently tax-free at the point of receipt.

Our Gold Standard Equity Release advice process


Fact find meeting

Equity release is a regulated product, and we are required to undertake a fact-find to ensure that you qualify for equity release and determine if a plan provides you with the right solution to meet your needs and circumstances. A fact-find is basically an exchange of information.


Whole of market research

Having completed a fact-find we can then undertake whole-of-market research, to determine which provider can offer you the most suitable plan to meet your individual circumstances and provide you with the best possible outcome.


Advice presentation meeting

Having completed our research and issued you with our recommendation pack, we will then undertake our advice presentation meeting. During this meeting we will talk you through the recommendation, explain why we believe the recommendation is right for you, confirm your understanding and answer any further questions that you may have.


Annual review

We will review your plan annually to ensure that it is still providing you with the best possible outcome, or sooner if your circumstances have changed and you require any further advice.

We also offer some other advisory services.

We have partnered with award-winning experts who can provide advice on alternative lending solutions as opposed to equity release.
