As part of this feature in The Times, one of our Directors, Paul Saroya was quoted in a detailed article about how the equity release industry is putting its house in order. It looks at the uncertain state of the UK market with Brexit and the pandemic and how equity release is quickly becoming a popular choice for Britons with their wealth wrapped up in property. Last year an astounding £3.9bn of equity was released in the UK. With interest rates low, but looking set to rise gradually, equity release is an enticing proposition for many over 55s.
Paul was quoted as saying "the motivations for equity release are changing. Parents are looking to gift money to their kids and reduce inheritance tax. Others are looking to pay off an interest-only mortgage. When people are coming to the end of their term, high street banks used to urge them to sell the property and repay the full principal of the loan. Lenders have now introduced lifetime mortgages, so being forced to sell doesn't have to happen." At Viva we are well positioned to offer you whole of market advice on equity release, lifetime mortgages and reverse interest mortgages.
As an active member of the Equity Release Council, we are pleased to say that the industry has become more transparent and responsible in recent years and it is always advised that you look for members of the Equity Release Council (such as us) when seeking advice.
