Halifax equity release is a good option for retired individuals who want to live a tension-free lifestyle after retirement. Unlike traditional mortgage plans, Halifax equity release is specially designed for individuals who are looking for home safety along with a better lending choice. This mortgage option can be used to raise equity from your property if you are over age 55 & are now in receipt of retirement income.
The money raised through the Halifax equity release mortgage can be spent the way you want. So, irrespective of whether you want to go on a holiday, exotic cruise or make home improvements, opting for equity release can be great at meeting your financial needs.
With inflation constantly on the rise & budgetary constraints we are all facing currently, retired individuals also are facing a lot of problems coping with their finances. However, there are certain requirements one needs to fulfil in order to qualify for Halifax equity release schemes. For instance, applicants must be above 55, retired and possess property of their own. The amount of equity one can release through this scheme depends on the age, pension income & the market valuation of their property.
So, if you are planning to go for Halifax equity release, it is always better to ensure that your property is well-maintained. Additionally, if you have a current mortgage on your property this will need to be repaid on competion of your new Halifax retirement mortgage. This will be paid for from the proceeds of the Halifax application & will be redeemed by the solicitor acting on your behalf. Therefore, whenever the interest only mortgage calculations are made the existing mortgage figure should always be taken into account.
The good news however, is that if you do have a current mortgage, no matter the size, & remortgaging to the Halifax Retirement Home Plan then there are some excellent deals available. As of July 2011, Halifax remortgages will provide a FREE valuation, FREE standard legal fees & on some products we can even obtain NO application fee.
