Equity Release For 50 Year Olds

In the current environment, most people in their 50s will experience a decline in disposable income, primarily as a result of reduced income from employment and pensions. It is often therefore necessary to look at releasing equity to help maintain a higher level of living.

50 equity release is a way of accessing the money tied up in your home without having to sell. It is essentially a long term loan for homeowners who are 55 and over. There is no need to repay the loan until you die or move into long term care, so you can continue living in your property for as long as you like.

The type of scheme you use will depend on your individual circumstances. It is important to understand all the options available to you and your adviser should consider these as part of your financial advice process. It is also advisable to talk to your family, as these schemes can reduce the inheritance you may be able to leave them.

It is very important that you get independent financial advice from a specialist equity release adviser, and that both your adviser and the provider are authorised by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). If something goes wrong, you should also check that the provider has a complaints procedure that you can follow. If you are not happy with the service you receive, you can contact the Financial Ombudsman Service for assistance. You should also check that your solicitor is a member of the Equity Release Council.
