Welcome to Simply Equity Release, the website dedicated to later life planning.
We specialise in equity release – helping homeowners enjoy a more comfortable retirement by unlocking some of the equity tied up in their home. We provide a wealth of clear, expert information and reviews of leading providers, to guide you through the process and help you make a more informed decision on whether releasing equity is the right choice for you.
Why equity release?
People in the UK are living longer and healthier lives. This is great news, but for some it comes with a downside. It means pensions need to stretch over a longer period and annual annuities may be smaller as a result.
If you're close to retirement age, saving extra in your pension pot may not be an option. However, if you own your home and it has increased in value, you may have been saving without knowing it. Equity release lets you make the most of that money and use it to create a more comfortable retirement.
It’s a big decision though and there may be alternative ways for you to raise cash in later life. That’s why it’s important to think it through carefully and seek independent advice.
Expert and impartial guidance to empower you
We are proud to be a member of the Equity Release Council and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which regulates the UK financial services industry and ensures equity release is a safe choice, and that we will treat you fairly.
We are also proudly independent and privately owned, with no links to any particular equity release provider or product. As a regulated company, we don’t recommend or give advice, our aim is to guide you through your options, answer your questions and give you the information you need to make better choices.
You can be confident the information we provide is clear, honest and impartial.
Expert and impartial advice when you need it
Simply Equity Release works in association with fellow independent Age Partnership, to give you access to impartial, expert advice when you need it.
We chose Age Partnership after careful thought, because they are award-winning equity release specialists, able to research and compare plans from across the whole market to find what’s right for you. As market leaders, they can also negotiate preferential rates and deals you may struggle to find elsewhere.
As you would expect, they are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and members of the Equity Release Council.
