Your equity may have increased
Your equity may have increased, in which case it may be possible, and beneficial, to release a larger amount. Even in retirement, our financial situations can change quickly and dramatically, and reacting to these changes can lead to great savings.
With UK house prices on the rise, there is also the potential to unlock additional funds if you need them. Routinely checking the value of your property could have significant benefits.
What's more, we have seen a number of lenders dropping their interest rates in recent years, which could save you hundreds or thousands of pounds in interest over the lifetime of your plan. It is possible to switch your plan mid-term, helping you benefit from lower rates and improved schemes.
Important things to consider
Additional fees and early repayment charges on your existing plan will also need to be taken into account if you wish to switch plans. In our recommendation to you, we will take all these costs into consideration to make sure swapping to another plan is right for you. Our dedicated team will guide you through the process and effects of switching equity release plans, in an easy-to-understand and no-pressure environment.
Equity release may involve a lifetime mortgage or home reversion plan. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration.
