The advantage of Equity Release for your parents.

Are your parents/grandparents 55 and over? Do they need extra cash for their holidays and for home repairs?

They could consider looking for an Equity release.

What is equity release?

The term equity release is a generic term for products that let homeowners 55+ release the tax-free cash they have locked up in their home.


The Equity release mortgage is an option that provides them with more freedom and a higher standard of living in their later years, as they're able to access equity from their property; often with no monthly payments to make.

If they don’t want to sell their home, they could be able to access a large portion of their money from the property they own. They can consider an equity release arrangement to repay their existing residential mortgage and help funds not only their retirement but also to help their loved ones onto the property ladder.


Equity release can help them raise funds to spend while enabling them to continue living in their home. It can be used for any reason they wish and is particularly useful for covering large expenses.

Are your parents at retirement age and want the most value to get equity out of their home and help you to get on property lader?

I would highly recommend Paul as a mortgage broker. As a first time lone buyer I began the process feeling very out of my depth, particularly in a market where mortgage rates are very high. But from the get go Paul provided reassurance and practical guidance and has been immensely helpful throughout the process. I've really appreciated his responsiveness, honesty and support.

I reached out to Paul 2 years ago and giving this review now because I wanted to ensure that I could give a true review of what benefits I have experienced from using his service. I am thrilled with the financial expertise given to me by Paul. His skillful negotiation secured me an excellent mortgage rate within a short turn around time. This has not only set me on the path to paying off my principal balance but has also allowed me to simultaneously build a solid emergency fund. His initial guidance has been invaluable in shaping my financial future. I look forward to working with Paul again, once my 5 year plan is near its end. Highly recommended!

Paul has been consistently excellent, ensuring we got the best possible mortgage deal at a time when rates weren't great. Paul worked with us to understand our financial complexities and went above and beyond to ensure they were understood by mortgage providers. We've been made to understand every stage of the process, and as first time buyers we were able to feel confident in the decisions we made. I would highly recommend working with Paul at Your Property Financial.
My almost a year-long journey with Paul as my broker has been truly amazing, despite a few hiccups during the mortgage process. Working with him has been the best decision ever! As a first-time buyer, I lacked knowledge about purchasing a home, but Paul's guidance and expertise were outstanding. He explained things in a clear and concise way. What impressed me the most was Paul's responsiveness. He promptly addressed all my questions and concerns, never making me feel like a bother. Even when I faced challenges, Paul's determination and problem-solving skills were unwavering. I felt so supported throughout the entire process. Thanks to Paul's unwavering support, I managed to reach this point. I highly recommend him to anyone, especially fellow first-time buyers. Paul's knowledge, patience, and reliability are unmatched. He's not just a broker; he's an invaluable ally in this complex process. Thank you, Paul!

Paul was an incredible broker to work with, would highly recommend! I went into the house buying process new and anxious, Paul was patient and walked me through the process each step of the way. Went above and beyond mortgage broking and felt like he was assisting throughout the buying process. Even when I went to put an offer in, the listing agent specifically said “you’ve got a really good mortgage broker, he is really on top of things”. He was prompt, helpful and matched me with a strong lender. 10/10.

You should seek professional advice before proceeding to take out any equity release mortgage as it could impact your entitlement to state benefits.

How does equity release work?

An equity release provider will provide you with either a lump sum or an income in exchange for part of the value of your home. This is achieved either using a type of mortgage or by selling that portion of your home on the condition that you can continue to live there as long as you wish.

Consult with a professional

As independent advisers we provide you with a written recommendation and will let you know if equity release doesn't meet your needs.

Completing the equity release application

We will then submit the equity release application. We will also introduce you to suitably qualified and experienced solicitors to assist with the legal side of the transaction.

Completion / Receive your money

Once the provider has completed their checks, the property surveyed and the solicitors completed the legal work on behalf of you and the provider you will reach completion. The funds are then released directly to you.

Many people haven’t heard of the equity release yet, but it still remains one of the most cost-effective ways to have their mortgage set up and has multiple benefits to them.

How Equity Release can help your parents over 55?

Repay existing mortgage as they approach retirement.

Now they’re approaching retirement it’s a good time to repay their existing mortgage so they no longer have any monthly mortgage payment to make, as typically their monthly net surplus income will decrease as they reduce their hours or stop working altogether in retirement.

Raising funds to gift and support loved ones onto the property ladder.

Releasing funds to gift to their loved ones to help them onto the property ladder and by gifting now they get to see them enjoy that gift and help them with their financial future.

Fund travelling and holidays in retirement.

Wanted to always book that world cruise? Go travelling for 6 months? Now your parents can sit back, relax and unwind with the available funds to book those trips they’ve always wanted to do!

Provide funds to draw on to top up existing pension & savings income.

Typically as your parents retire their income drops, so by taking capital out of their property they can use that to pay for things and top up their income in retirement.

Reduce your parents' inheritance tax liability.

By gifting early there are potential inheritance tax advantages. We can introduce them to an accountant who can confirm their potential options relevant to their own individual circumstance.

Capital for home improvements.

Need to fix up the house? Need a new bathroom? New kitchen overdue? Now your parents can release the capital required to complete those works so they can enjoy their new home in retirement.

Are you looking for a deposit for your property purchase?

If your parents own their own home and 55+ they maybe able to help raise the deposit for you as a gift.

Even better they won't need to make any monthly repayments!
