The vast majority of over 65`s want to stay in their own home during retirement and taking out an equity release plan could enable them to modify it so that they can.
Figures from the Equity Release Council (ERC) show that 70 per cent of retirees don`t want to move when they finish working, but one fifth of these have been put off the idea of adapting their home to serve them better as a result of a lack of funds.
The kind of things that generally need attention are staircases, gardens and bathrooms, in the forms of things like stairlifts, raised beds and walk in baths, respectively. Most over sixty fives would prefer to dip into their savings to do this, but when that`s not an option, equity release could be.
Nigel Waterson is the chairman of the ERC, and he explains that `with many over-65s asset rich and cash poor, it is a logical step to consider releasing some of their housing equity to prolong the pleasure they take from spending their retirement years in the place they call home`.
