Equity release may be appropriate for clients seeking to repay existing borrowing; provide additional income; generate capital for home improvements; gifts for children & grand children; and general estate planning. Typically a client aged 65 could release 25 to 28% of equity from their home, increasing at age 75 to 32% to 33%.
Our advice includes planning for care costs at home, or residential care (local authority financial assessment); Understanding entitlement to DWP allowances and payments; and arranging power of attorney; wills and appropriate trusts.
