Equity Release in Middlesbrough

Equity Release & Lifetime Mortgage Advice in Middlesbrough

How does Equity Release in Middlesbrough work?

If you have been living in/owned a property for the last  10+ years, it is very likely that you have built up a lot of equity. The equity in your home is the difference between your property value and the amount remaining on your mortgage.


For example, if you have paid off 50% of your mortgage on a property valued at £200,000, the total equity inside of the property is £100,000. With the power of equity release, you could take some of this money back out of your home to create a lump sum of cash.


This lump sum can be spent on whatever you want. After all, it is just the money that you have previously put into the property. As a mortgage broker in Middlesbrough, we have seen people use this money to pay off unsecured debt, fund home improvements, go on holiday or purchase a new car.


Equity release is a complex subject and you should get Mortgage Advice in Middlesbrough before taking equity from your home.

Lifetime Mortgages Middlesbrough

Rather than remortgaging to release equity, if you are 55+ and have a property value above £70,000, you may be able to release equity through a lifetime mortgage.


With a lifetime mortgage, you will receive repayments without needing to move out of the property. On the other hand, you can take out a lifetime mortgage and move into long-term care or let the loan amount build up with interest.


Each person’s situation is unique, therefore, you may end up using the equity in a completely different way from someone else.

Things to Remember with Equity Release

As mentioned above, you should find out more about equity release and how it works prior to remortgaging or taking out a lifetime mortgage. The main things that can affect your application are age, property value and how much equity you have inside of your property.


We would strongly recommend that you get in touch with one of our expert equity release advisors in Middlesbrough. They will be more than happy to help and take a look at your situation.


To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. Our typical advice fee is up to £1,495 only payable on completion.

Equity Release to Pay Off a Mortgage

If you take out a lifetime mortgage, you can release the equity in your property as a tax-free lump sum and use it to pay off the rest of your existing mortgage. Most often just let the interest rate build up over time.


Lifetime mortgages can impact your affordability. This is because you already have a substantial outgoing (your current mortgage), so a lender may be warier of how much they are lending to you.

Equity Release to Pay Off Unsecured Debts

Secured debts are debts that are valued against an asset (such as your mortgage valued against your house). Unsecured debts are personal loans, credit cards, etc. This debt is not secured against any particular asset.


If this is something that you would like to look at doing, make sure to get in touch with our team.

Equity Release for Home Improvements, Modifications or Alterations

If you feel like your property could benefit from a makeover such as a conversion or extension, you may be able to release equity to fund these improvements.


When remortgaging to release equity, you can take out a lump sum of cash and invest it back into your property. You will also be placed onto a new mortgage deal, likely a repayment mortgage.


Home improvement suggestions include a new kitchen, garden extension, home office, loft conversion or a new garage – it’s completely up to you!

Equity Release for Additional Purchases

Similarly to releasing equity to fund home improvements, you could release equity to fund a holiday, your own/a family member’s wedding, etc. Remember that it is your money, therefore, you can spend it how you like!
