Customer Reviews


William from London

I was told by my lawyer my inheritance tax bill would be around £250,000. I got a Halifax 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.

Halifax Lifetime Mortgage

Sandra from Manchester

I got 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.


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 Shaw from Lancaster

I had an interest-only mortgage with Birmingham Midshires. The mortgage had come to the end of its term and they wanted the £127000 back I still owed them. My lifetime mortgage saved me from losing my home and the rate was close to what I paid before.


Mrs M from Birmingham

With no brokers fees and no lenders fees, I got an interest-only retirement mortgage which I pay each month from my private pension. The money released went to my daughter for her wedding and deposit for her next house. She wanted a family, and her flat was too small.


Mrs L from Nottingham

I had to pay a valuation fee and a solicitor’s fee, but no lender or broker fees for my Halifax lifetime mortgage. As I was divorcing my husband of 30 years the money went to him for his share of the house. I am happy now as I am secure, and I do not need to move from my home.


Mrs E from London

I was advised to get equity release from my East London home to minimise inheritance tax. My son and daughter used the money to pay down their mortgages. The interest rate on the equity release was so low it was close to their mortgage rate.


Mrs Daly from Glasgow

My daughter lives in the states and does not have health insurance. My £30,000 Halifax 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.


Julia A

My mother has dementia. With my solicitor and my power of attorney, I got equity release on my mother’s house to pay for specialist modifications for her comfort.
