Unlock the value of your home

An Equity Release mortgage is a special type of home loan that lets the owner convert a portion of the equity in the home into cash.

It is generally available for people over 60, and is a vibrant market with many lenders, with a variety of different types of deals.

This is why it is so important to take suitable advice, and at Signpost we can guide you through everything you need to know.

There are two types of Equity Release plans, Home Reversion and Lifetime Mortgages. Signpost Mortgages only provides advice on Lifetime Mortgages

Releasing cash from the equity in your home can be an invaluable support to your needs in retirement, but you should be aware that there are often pitfalls and things to look out for, before deciding this is a practical option.

Having an independent view and taking independent advice helps with reassurance that this is the right step for you to take.
