Thinking about releasing equity from your home and would like some advice?
I work with dedicated equity release companies who can provide specialist financial advice to help you enjoy retirement to the full. Working with carefully chosen partners we can help answer any questions you may have on the subject.
They will talk to you about your circumstances and assess whether equity release is the right option for you. If it isn't, they will clearly state the reasons why not. If it is, they will give you comprehensive advice on an appropriate equity release scheme that meets your needs and circumstances. They will only recommend a scheme from a company with a SHIP mark.
The SHIP mark means a safe harbour
If you are thinking of equity release, then dealing with an organisation that is a member of SHIP (Safe Home Income Plans) is a smart move. Members of SHIP have to comply with a code of practice designed to protect customers.
Dealing with a company that is a member of SHIP means you can count on a couple of vital guarantees. Firstly, you are guaranteed not to lose your home, no matter what may happen to the stock market, interest rates or property prices. There is also a ‘no negative equity’ guarantee, which means that you will never end up owing more than the value of your home.
To comply with the code, companies must provide clear information on all aspects of the plan including your rights and obligations. It also states that you must have received independent legal advice before taking out a plan.
