You could even opt to take lump sums as you need via a drawdown equity release plan, rather than releasing it all in one go, thereby much reducing interest. These do not require affordability tests and are not affected by your credit rating, so can be ideal for pension top ups, low income or poor credit history scenarios.

Releasing Equity from Your Home With A RemortgageSo how does it all work? Even with the recent economic roller coaster, house prices are now a lot higher than they were many years ago. Also over those years many of you will have been reducing what you owe on your mortgage by making monthly payments. This means that in some cases your property may be worth far more than you owe on your mortgage. This could also be the case if you are almost at the end of your existing mortgage term and have almost paid the balance off. The resulting factor is that you have a property that could be worth significantly more money than you owe on it. The relative amount owed on your home versus the current value of it is called the loan to value (LTV) of a property. To calculate your property`s LTV head over to our mortgage calculators page.
The difference between what you owe and the value of the property is termed the `equity` you have in a property and some of this can be released via the use of a remortgage or other equity release solutions. Therefore you can look to release money against your property through the use of a remortgage. This would increase your existing mortgage balance but in the process will have released funds against your property that otherwise you wouldn`t have had access to. Mortgages of any kind are of course a serious commitment and careful consideration should be taken of the risks involved before arranging borrowing against your home.
A remortgage and other solutions can release equity for a multitude of reasons. If you have the equity available and have been looking for ways to access capital but can`t seem to get the money together from savings or you were hoping to save them for a rainy day, then a remortgage could be a solution. Here are a few examples of what you could use the extra money for:
Home Improvements - A remortgage could be used to obtain money for home improvements, so if you are looking at modernizing the kitchen, extending the house, adding a conservatory, converting your loft, installing a downstairs bathroom for ease of use or any other home improvement project you may be considering, a remortgage from First Choice Finance could help you achieve your goal. Whether it is to increase the value of the property, to accommodate a growing family or to make it more suited to you
New Car - Although people`s first thought is often a car loan, if you have equity in your home a remortgage could be an alternative way of raising the cash then you can choose which car you want from whatever car dealer or private seller you choose. If you release equity from your home the money can be used for almost any purpose including buying a new car.
What ever you need to raise the money for, if your piggy bank won`t cut you may want to look to release some equity from your property and raise the money that way. Here at First Choice we have access to a vast selection of remortgage products and other equity release solutions and our experienced advisers would only be too happy to tailor a remortgage product to match your circumstances.
As well as being able to remortgage the home that you live in, you are able to release money from other houses you may own, this includes any buy to let property you may have, second homes or holiday homes. The remortgaging process for these different types of property is very similar although the choice of mortgage lender or mortgage deals available may be slightly different and more targeted specifically to that type of property.
Equity Release SchemesUsing a remortgage to release equity from your home isn`t the only scheme available to free up funds from your property. We have access to a selection of competitive equity release schemes. Although they sound similar, and essentially they have the same affect of raising funds against your property there are some key differences between releasing equity from your property via a remortgage and doing the same but with an equity release scheme. Most importantly equity release schemes command certain criteria for them to be available to you. Among other criteria that can vary from lender to lender, you have to be over the age of 55 to even qualify for an equity release or lifetime mortgage as they can often be referred to.
So what makes them different? An equity release scheme is where you borrow money against the value of your home, but unlike a normal remortgage where you pay the loan back over a term, here you can pay nothing back or just pay the interest ongoing (known as a retirement interest only mortgage / R.I.O.) until your home is sold, either after your death or if you go into a care home. This is a lifetime mortgage. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. For more information regarding equity release schemes and whether you might qualify, give us a call or enquire on line and one of our qualified advisers will talk through your options without any obligation.
Can You Release Equity From Your House?
The answer to this depends on a number of factors, one of the most important things to consider is exactly how much equity you have in your property, if your home or buy to let property has a high loan to value then it is more difficult to find the appropriate mortgage deal. Here at First Choice Finance we have mortgage plans that go up to 95% loan to value so are often able to help you unlock the capital by remortgaging.
A big question on choosing the best option to release equity from your home is your age, the difference between equity release schemes and a remortgage is that equity release schemes for over 55`s will see the interest on the money borrowed added to the mortgage loan with the option not to make any repayments until your death. There are a couple of options for equity release for under 55`s the first is to remortgage your home to get the money that you need, in some circumstances this is not always the best option as your current mortgage may have early repayment charges or penalties on it. On these occasions then you may consider using a secured loan to release the equity that you need, whatever the situation First Choice have a wide panel of loan and mortgage lenders and will talk through the different options with you giving you a no obligation free quote on any equity release mortgage or loan.
