Equity Release and Lifetime Mortgages
H D Consultants is authorised & approved as a Lifetime Mortgage Adviser Firm.
'Equity Release' is, thankfully, no longer a dirty word.
The 1980's and 1990's were periods of time when banks sold certain types of mortgages, commonly known as Shared Appreciation Mortgages, or Home Income Plans.
At the time, they were dressed up as 'equity release' and were presented as ways of 'helping' borrowers to release cash from their home.
But, those products back in the day, were in fact riddled with huge risks, property price assumptions and interest rate gambles.
Many people ended up in negative equity, and some lost their homes, and families lost their inheritances.
The 2000's saw a very welcome sea-change in product design and now, many years later, we have user-friendly and compliant equity release products with 'no negative equity guarantees', 'inheritance guarantees', 'capital guarantees', a choice of lump sums, drawdowns or monthly income products that include optional payment features too.
In today's market, the whole advice process is now highly regulated, strictly processed and robustly monitored - and rightly so, for consumer protection.
NOTE Equity Release will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits and tax status.
