In Poor Health?
Recent enhancements within the equity release industry have seen the introduction of Enhanced Equity Release Plans for those in poor health or with certain lifestyle choices.
Also known as impaired equity release, these plans give access to up to 30% more money than a standard equity release plan, with the added certainty that their debt will not grow if they live longer than expected. Companies such as Aviva, More2Life, and Partnership provide these plans and each has different criteria meaning it is important to get independent advice from a specialist.
Factors that qualify include smoking, height/weight ratio (BMI), diagnosed conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer and history of heart problems.
What is Equity Release?
Equity Release allows you to safely release tax-free cash from the value of your home, make no monthly repayments, continue to own AND stay in your home for life. This allows you to take advantage of the increase in property values over the last few years.
The money raised can be used for any purpose including:
- Boosting Retirement income
- Buying a new car
- Treating family members to an 'early inheritance'
- Special holidays
- Clearing a lingering mortgage
- Helping loved ones get on the property ladder
