Reasons for equity release

Increasing numbers of retirees are turning to equity release as a much-needed source of tax-free cash, but what is their motivation?

Interest-only mortgage

It has been estimated that a staggering 600,000 people will have an interest-only mortgage maturing before 2020. Not all of these will have a repayment strategy in place and could struggle to find a new deal due to age.


With recent house price increases, it is difficult for first-time buyers to get on to the property ladder.

This is just one of the many reasons why an increasing number of over-55s are opting to help their loved ones now rather than leaving an inheritance, with a 'lifetime legacy'.

Home improvements

Many people in or approaching retirement are using equity release to make home improvements as they do not want the upheaval of moving home.

Many over-55s are making the home and garden more manageable rather than moving to a smaller property.

Pay debts

Entering retirement with outstanding debts can be a worrying prospect. This is where equity release can provide a much-needed lifeline.
