Equity Release is a way of raising money from the value of your home.
If you are in your mid 50's or older you might have paid a substantial amount off your mortgage, or be close to doing so. The value of your home may have risen considerably since you bought it, but you might still be short of money to spend, invest or even pay your standard mortgage off.
You could be facing a pension shortfall or have to meet unexpected expenses or simply want to fund a retirement treat, equity release can be an attractive solution. It allows you to tap into the wealth you've accumulated in your property without the stress of having to move.
