Equity Release Guide
The way the UK economy and society has developed in recent decades creates a real importance around Equity Release as a tangible solution for hundreds of thousands, possibly more, of individuals and couples looking for ways to enhance their retirement
The Equity Release solution is both viable and sensible in so many cases.
It arises from a combination of:
• People living longer
• Wealth tied up in property
• Stress on public services, especially – in this case – the provision and costs of care
• Retirement periods lasting for many decades
• Higher costs of living in retirement
• Generational imbalances
This guide explores all these factors further in the following pages and show how they interact with Equity Release solutions.
