Equity Release Supermarket’s service – in summary

Equity Release Supermarket’s service gives you impartial advice and access to an online comparison tool enabling you to compare deals available across the whole market.

Using the ‘find an adviser’ tool, you can set up an appointment with a qualified advisor, either in person or over the phone. There’s no charge for this initial meeting and you’re under no obligation to go any further. The advisor you speak to will assess your needs and help you reach the solution best suited to your circumstances, and they will remain your single, dedicated point of contact throughout. 

If you go on to apply for an equity release scheme, you’ll be given access to an online dashboard that lets you monitor your application’s progress 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Equity Release Supermarket charges a simple one-off fee for its service, which is guaranteed to never exceed £995. You’ll also need to pay the usual professional fees.  Your adviser will talk you through all the costs involved, as well as any deals or incentives that could reduce the overall cost.

Eligibility criteria

Eligibility will vary between products and providers; however, Equity Release Supermarket states you must meet four, very simple criteria in the first instance:

  1. Be over 55 years of age
  2. Be a homeowner and you own property in the UK
  3. Your home is worth a minimum of £70,000
  4. You have little or no mortgage left to pay on it
