Equity Release Conveyancing

Release equity from your Bedford house and enjoy your retirement more comfortably with Clarity Legal Services. We are a specialist conveyancing firm with extensive experience guiding homeowners through the equity release process.

What is Equity Release?

Equity release is a financial product designed for homeowners aged 55 or over that allows you to access the value you’ve built up in your property – the equity – without having to move out. This equity can be released as a tax-free lump sum or as smaller instalments spread over time, giving you a regular income stream.

 

Here’s a closer look at the two main types of equity release:

Lifetime Mortgages

This is the most common type of equity release. With a lifetime mortgage, you take out a loan secured against your property. You don’t typically have to make monthly repayments on the loan itself, but the interest rolls up over time and is added to the loan amount. The loan is then repaid, along with the accrued interest, when you die or move into long-term care, and your property is sold.

Home Reversion Plans

Under a home reversion plan, you sell part or all of your home ownership to a specialist provider in exchange for a lump sum or regular income payments. You retain the right to live in your property for the rest of your life, but when you die or move into long-term care, the provider will sell the property and recoup their investment plus any agreed-upon profit share.

How Can Equity Release Help You?

Equity release can be a valuable tool for improving your financial security and well-being in retirement. Here are some ways it can be used:

Boost Retirement Income

Many people find their retirement income, such as pensions or social security, isn’t quite enough to maintain their desired lifestyle. Equity release can provide a lump sum or regular income stream to help bridge the gap. This can be used for everyday expenses, travel, hobbies, or simply living more comfortably.

Pay Off Existing Debts

Debt, like mortgages or credit card balances, can be a significant burden. Equity release can provide a lump sum that allows you to consolidate and potentially eliminate these debts. This can free up your monthly budget, reduce stress, and give you greater financial peace of mind.

Help Family Members

Are you looking to provide financial assistance to your children or grandchildren? Equity release can help you do that. The funds could be used to support their education, help with a down payment on a house, or contribute to a wedding.

Make Home Improvements

As we age, our needs for our living space can change. Equity release can provide the capital to make improvements to your Bedford home, such as renovations to enhance accessibility (e.g., installing grab bars or ramps), energy-efficient upgrades to reduce utility bills, or essential repairs to maintain the property’s safety and comfort.

Gift Equity

In some cases, equity release can be used for estate planning purposes. You can access some of your home’s equity while remaining the homeowner, potentially reducing the inheritance tax burden for your beneficiaries. It’s important to seek professional financial advice to understand the implications of using equity release for this purpose.

Invest in Yourself

Equity release funds can also be used to invest in yourself. This could include funding a lifelong learning course, pursuing a passion project, or simply enjoying a well-deserved vacation.
