Many long-standing homeowners now have considerable equity in their properties.
This is providing the opportunity for older borrowers to consider using part of this equity to ease their financial positions as they approach the end of their working lives.
In addition, parents may wish use this equity to advance money to their children as a means of getting them onto the property ladder or to counter the problems of high school fees for younger family members.
Lower interest rates and rising property prices are tempting older homeowners who have equity in their property to release funds through purpose-designed Equity Release Mortgages.
The Equity Release Council regulates the specialist lenders which offer a range of benefits with these mortgages.
Redwood Financial Consultants has helped clients to release money to repay debts, gift money to family members and even provide funds for emergencies. In particular, there is a growing uptake by borrowers aged between 65 and 74.
We can approach lenders that give you
- A fixed rate for the life of the loan
- The option to pay some or all of the loan interest each month
- Ring-fence part of the property value to use as inheritance

Few brokers are qualified to arrange equity release mortgages as they are now part of a highly regulated area of the mortgage market.
We can also arrange lifetime mortgages where interest is not rolled up or taken from the equity on death. These are more like a traditional interest-only mortgage suitable for older borrowers.
Call Redwood Financial Consultants on 020 8540 3434 to secure an equity release mortgage.

There will be a fee for mortgage advice. The precise amount will depend upon your circumstances but we estimate that it will be £495 at application and £995 on completion of the mortgage.
