How to use our home reversion equity release calculator

It couldn't be easier to use our home reversion calculator for equity release. To get an instant estimate of the maximum you could borrow on a home reversion plan, simply add in the following to our equity release calculator:

  • The value of your property (which must be a minimum of £50,000 and in the UK)
  • The age of the youngest homeowner (they must be at least 50 years old)
  • Your postcode
  • The percentage of your home’s equity you want to release (up to 100%)
  • Whether you are applying by yourself or in joint names

With our equity release calculators, only your property details are required for you to see how much you could release from a home reversion plan. Once you’ve filled in the information, your home reversion equity release calculator results are shown instantly in an easy-to-read table.

You can also find personalised calculations for all other eligible equity release plans when you use smartER, an innovative equity release tool that provides real-time calculations across the entire market.

An introduction to home reversion plans

Home reversion plans were the forebearer of today's modern lifetime mortgages. While lifetime mortgages do offer bigger lump sums and flexible features that can be tailored to your individual needs, home reversion plans remain a good option to consider, especially if your property type is not suitable for a lifetime mortgage or you wish to protect a guaranteed percentage of your property for your beneficiaries.

So, how does it work? A home reversion equity release plan is where you sell a percentage of your property to the lender (reversion provider) in exchange for a tax-free lump sum and lifetime tenancy. Any amount unsold is still retained by you, so when the property is eventually sold, your beneficiaries inherit that percentage value of the home.

The older the last homeowner is, the more tax-free cash they will have access to on a home reversion plan. This is because the home reversion provider is likely to receive their share of the property proceeds sooner.
