Equity Release

“A tax free income solution for your homeowner clients over 55”

At Connect, we offer an effective solution for your clients who are likely to be cash poor but asset rich. Equity release is an innovative approach for people aged 55 and over to obtain cash from their property for an array of reasons such as:

  • Paying off an existing mortgage
  • Funding home improvements
  • Inheritance planning
  • Receiving low pensions
  • Financially supporting loved ones
  • Wishing to fund personal leisure
  • Or more!
How does equity release work?

Your clients can raise a lump-sum of money or a regular monthly income from their property using equity release. The size of the mortgage loan they can raise is based on their age and their properties value. There are normally no monthly payments to make, therefore there is no affordability assessment. The mortgage and interest will be repaid when the homeowners pass away. The sum raised can be used however the clients wish.

Case Study : Mr and Mrs M in their early 70’s had an interest only mortgage with a term coming to an end. They had limited income from pensions and wished to remain in the current family home.
We were able to find a provider that was prepared to lend just under 50% of the property value which released enough funding to repay the existing mortgage loan as well as repay some personal debt. This reduced monthly outgoings for Mr and Mrs M by nearly £1,600 per month and meant that they were able to stay in their current home.
