Equity release with OneFamily

Release equity from your home to live life the way you want. You'll need a specialist adviser to do this - and that's where OneFamily Advice can help

What is equity release?

Equity release is the process of unlocking part of the value of your home into cash.

You can use the money however you like, including to pay for home improvements, help family members to buy a home, or to supplement your retirement income.

If you’re 55 or over you could be able to release equity using a lifetime mortgage, which is a loan taken out against your home. You continue to own your home, and you can stay living in it for as long as you like. The loan is repaid from the sale of the property when you die or enter long term care.

How much money could I release?

Our free equity release calculator will give you an idea of how much tax-free cash could be unlocked from your home. It takes less than a minute to fill in a few details and you can see an estimate of the amount that you could release. The maximum amount primarily depends on your age and the value of your home.

Please note, amounts will vary depending on individual circumstances.

Important: The loan amounts above are an illustration of the amount you could borrow. The actual amount may vary depending on your individual circumstances. The figures are not guaranteed and do not constitute an offer to lend. The loan amount will need to pay off any existing mortgage secured against the same property.

What can I use the money for?

One of the great benefits of equity release is that it can be used for lots of different things, such as paying for home improvements or using it as an alternative to downsizing your house.

If you’ve got children, it’s a great way of helping them get on the property ladder.

How do I release equity?

Equity release is a big decision, as it reduces the value of your estate and the inheritance that you can leave to loved ones. It can also affect your tax position and your eligibility for means-tested benefits.

That’s why you should speak to an equity release adviser before you make a decision. They will take the time to understand your financial situation, tell you whether it’s right for you and recommend equity release products that are a good fit for your needs.
