Over 65s Mortgage Equity

Increasingly over 65s are releasing equity in their home, should you too?

More people than ever are approaching retirement with outstanding debts or planned expenditure that they currently do not have the funds to sustain

Equity release from your home is an option to provide you with the funds for this, however increasing options have recently come to the market that give a wider range of choice. Because of this, identifying which option suits you best is where a qualified later life adviser can help you make the right decision for you, now and ongoing.

Don’t tie your retirement to your existing debts

Over a third of people due to finish work this year will retire with an average debt of £17,000 according to Key. How to structure the current debt and meet any additional spending in the early years of retirement is of paramount importance for the adviser to build with the client in order to give a better chance of delivering on the client’s retirement plan.

Plan for your family’s future by being smart with your mortgage

Not all retirees are looking to raise or restructure debt for their own purposes, the number wanting to help family get onto the housing ladder has doubled whereas at the same time the number wanting to carry out home improvements has fallen by 25% in the same time period. Women are more likely to take out equity release than men according to LV= analysis that they have recently published, they have highlighted that some of the reasons for this are the relatively small pensions that women will receive due to the fact that they generally live longer than men, have a lower average pension payout and are increasingly financially unsupported due to rising divorce rate for the over 60s.

The range of equity release, retirement interest only, later life lending propositions that has become available to the market has grown considerably.

"You can see the determination and experience they have really shine through when chasing up on every little detail from our providers"

Having Andy at Morgan Mortgages Ltd guide us through the process of buying our first property really helped take the stress out of the purchase. They were completely open and easy to contact- and you can really see the determination and experience they have really shine through when chasing up on every little detail from our providers. I couldn't recommend them enough!

"Andy helped me through every step of the way and I am so gratefully for his effort and help throughout the whole process"

I first came across Morgan Mortgages Ltd when I was highly recommended by a good friend, When talking to Andy I explained that I had been to other mortgage advisor who could not help me, we spoke about what I needed to achieve for me over the phone and arranged to have a meeting. Andy came around to my house where we had an in depth chat about what I want him to do for me and his company background etc. He went away from meeting and done lots of research before calling me saying he could help me, I was over the moon when I had the phone call as had been to other advisor who just couldn’t help me.

It didn’t stop there as Andy helped me through every step of the way and I am so gratefully for his effort and help throughout the whole process. With Morgan Mortgages you most certainly get an outstanding stress free service, I will and have been highly recommending Morgan Mortgages Ltd to anyone I think they could help.
