How Equity Release can improve your life

29 MAR Boyd Legal Social media posts 3

If you are over 55 and own your own home, you can unlock the value which has built up on your property in a tax-free sum.

It allows you to gain cash in a lump sum, whilst still being able to remain the owner of your property.

Here are the top three ways you can use Equity Release to improve your quality of life:

  1. Home improvements

Home improvement is one of the most popular reasons people release equity from their property. Whether it’s updating your kitchen or bathroom or building the conservatory you have always wanted Equity Release can be used to fund your home improvements. As people get older and edge towards retirement Equity Release provides a means to getting more enjoyment out of your property.

  1. Cost of living

As the cost-of-living rises, Equity Release can provide access to tax-free cash allowing you to live a more financially comfortable life and/or maintain your lifestyle.

Equity Release also offers an opportunity to repay debts you may currently have; freeing up more cash to use in day-to-day life. As the Equity Release sum and interest is only paid after the borrower passes away or moves out of the property, it allows you to make the money you have go longer, without having to change your lifestyle. 

  1. Holiday of a lifetime

Looking to complete a travel bucket list or plan the holiday of a lifetime?

For many, retirement is a time to relax, enjoy life and explore the world. Accessing cash through releasing equity gives you a chance to fund your post-career dreams without worrying about repayments until after your property is sold, when the borrower passes away or goes into residential care.
