Releasing Equity

At Poole Alcock, our property lawyers can advise you on the pros and cons of your chosen equity release plan.

Releasing Equity

Your home is likely to be one of your biggest assets. Equity release schemes can make your property work for you, by releasing some of your money while you’re still living there. Equity release could be the right choice for you if you own your home, are aged 55-95 and live in England or Wales. However, it is important you take independent financial advice before deciding whether or not equity release is the right choice for you.

Exchanging some of the equity in your home for a cash lump sum is a significant step that can have serious implications for your future. These can include the effect a lump sum will have on your entitlement to state benefits, the impact of a compound interest mortgage on the legacy you hope to leave, or the tax implications for your loved ones if they receive a gift of cash. Therefore, taking independent legal advice and separate independent financial advice is really important.

At Poole Alcock, our property lawyers can advise you on the pros and cons of your chosen equity release plan, be it a lifetime mortgage or a home reversion plan, giving you independent legal advice on the best way to achieve your goals.
