The number 1 question asked: How Can I Release More Tax Free Cash From My Home?

75

This article is going to give you the answer to the most commonly asked question “how can I release more tax free cash from my home?’

An increasingly popular way to release equity from your home and boost your income is to use a lifetime mortgage.

You could be eligible to release equity from your home using a lifetime mortgage if you own a property worth at least ₤ 70,000 and you are aged 55 and over. This type of equity release plan enables you to take advantage of some of the money locked in your home and use the money to boost your disposable retirement income or spend as you want.

There are typically no monthly payments to make as the full amount owed is designed to be paid back from the sale of your home upon your passing away or when you move into long-term care.

Equity release has escalated in popularity over the years, with billions being released by over-55 homeowners each year. It has evolved and changed substantially over the last few years, with new providers entering the market contributing to an increase in the amount of products available.
