How to compare equity release schemes in 2024

To compare equity release schemes you first need to establish your requirements. For example:

  1. How much money do you want to release?
  2. Do you meet the eligibility criteria for a lifetime mortgage?
  3. Do you want to protect a percentage of your property value as an inheritance for your family?
  4. Would you like to repay some or all of the interest?
  5. Would you like a single lump sum or a cash reserve you can draw on when you wish?

As well as comparing equity release interest rates, it’s important to consider other factors such as early repayment charges and any incentives or cashback offers in place that make the offer more appealing.

Where can I find the best equity release interest rates in 2024?

To find the best interest rates on equity release, it helps to get the right advice from a specialist. They will explain how releasing equity from your home could work for you, help you consider alternative options and compare schemes.

However, be aware that some specialists are tied to a select number of companies, so only able to compare their plans. To get the best equity release advice it can help to use a broker or IFA who compares schemes across a wide range of providers.

Also, some advisers will charge for their initial advice while others will provide it for free, only charging a fee if you decide to go ahead.

So compare the cost of advice from brokers as this could also save you money.
