Most homeowners in London and the South East have seen the value of their homes increase substantially over recent years to such a degree that, more often than not, the amount of equity locked up in the property is considerably more than the value of any other assets (be it investments or pension savings) a person might have.
Usually, for those below age 55 this equity is only accessible by either raising a mortgage against it or selling up completely. Having to move home can be a very unattractive prospect and sometimes a standard mortgage is unavailable or simply unaffordable.
For those over the age of 55, however, equity release could offer a viable alternative.
