When you turn equity in your home into a lump sum of cash, this is called Equity Release. What you spend the money on is entirely up to you. You might want to use this cash to pay off some unsecured debts, pay for holidays or gift the money to a family member to use as a deposit towards a home.
When it comes to an Equity Release in Halifax, this will come in the form of a Lifetime Mortgage. When you are approaching the end of your mortgage period, there is the option to Release Equity through a Lifetime Mortgage. It does require you to be in your main residence. When you do take on out, you will be able to pick your percentage of equity for future family inheritance, it’s your decision.
Normally, you will pay back the mortgage when you are living inside the home or when you’re in long term care. You might want to let the loan amount build up with interest, it’s completely up to you! All homeowners have varying situations and want to do different things so you can decide what is best for your personal and financial situation.
You need to know if you qualify for a Lifetime Mortgage. In order to qualify, you need to be at least 55 years old and the amount of equity that you can release comes down to the property’s value and your age.

There are a large variety of reasons why someone may look to release equity in their home and take out Lifetime Mortgage. Below are some of the most common reasons that we, as Mortgage Broker in Halifax, have seen people looking to Release Equity within their homes:
If you have not completed your mortgage term, you do still have the option to take out a lifetime mortgage and use some of the equity to pay off the remaining balance of a mortgage. One element that may affected is your affordability because you still do have a significant outgoing to pay for. Because of this, you are limiting the amount a lender may give you.
An example of a secured debt is mortgage payments because you are securing the money against your home. The opposite of this is unsecured debt which is things like personal loans and credit cards with the debt not being secured against any asset. In this situation, you would use the equity to pay off that unsecured debt.
Many homeowners decide to give their homes a revamp through either general improvements or conversions. Releasing equity can help with funding this. Just like you were to Remortgage to Release Equity, however, the big difference is that you’ll be placed on a Repayment Mortage if you Remortgage to Release Equity, whereas a regular Equity Release will place you on a Lifetime Mortgage.
When it comes to Releasing equity for home improvements, many people choose developments like a home office, conversion, garden improvement, extensions, new living rooms and kitchens as well as a new garage.
You may want to release some equity from your home for other purchases you may want to make. The most common reasons include funding for a holiday, a new car, or even a wedding.
