Recently completed mortgage, equity release and lifetime mortgage cases


Sandra from Manchester

I got an equity release to give money to my daughter to buy a house. Without the money I borrowed, her buying a home would have been impossible.


William from London

I was told by my lawyer my inheritance tax bill would be around £250,000. I got a lifetime mortgage to give money to my son and daughter so they could buy bigger homes and we bought a house in the south of France for us all to use as a holiday home.


Ms G from Dover

I divorced my husband who was a violent alcoholic. I really feared losing my home as I sometimes look after my daughter’s children. Equity release enabled me to pay off my ex and stay secure in my home.


Mrs V from Hastings

I had spent my life running up credit cards and loans then getting interest-only mortgages to pay off the debt. I got to retirement age and still owed the bank £160,000. The term was about to expire, and I could not afford the payments on my pension anyway. I got £180,000 equity release and now I am more comfortable with no monthly repayments and I spent £20,000 on a new bathroom and kitchen. I now know I can stay in my home.


Mr Smith from Kendal

My financial advisor told me that I should get equity release and gift money to my 5 children now as it would save a massive amount of inheritance tax.


Mrs G from Leeds

My daughter is a single mother, and I got a £120,000 lifetime mortgage to buy her a flat outright as she has had a succession of poorly maintained rental flats not suitable for her child.


Mrs Daly from Glasgow

My daughter lives in the states and does not have health insurance. My £30,000 lifetime mortgage paid the medical bills for her son to be born and a years rent in advance for a new flat for the baby.


David P

With my power of attorney, I got equity release on my father’s house to pay for disability provisions including a lift and a new kitchen.
