You can choose one of these schemes and enjoy a lump sum amount of money. You can also get a regular monthly income against your home.

How much money you can raise against your home?

The amount of money which you can receive against the value of your home depends on your age, value of home and condition of your property. Additionally, if you are, or have been in poor health then some equity release schemes can offer greater amounts of tax free cash.

How do the lenders get their money?

Once your have applied for equity release then you do not have to worry about the repayments. This is because the lenders will receive money by selling the home after your death or when you move to a care home.
