Retired Parents Give a Helping Hand
According to specialist IFA Key Retirement Solutions, people are increasingly using equity release to support their families.
Due to the current economic situation, many children are experiencing financial difficulties but their parents who are retired come to their aid.
The estimated number of UK citizens using the equity release option in the first three months of 2010 was 35% compared to 19% during the same period last year. The intention to spend money on your own home has been one of the commonest reasons for drawing attention to equity release.
The proportion of those who resort to equity release to pay off debts seems to fall down yet still remaining a popular option. According to home revision specialists, many citizens tend to use home reversion to repay mortgage loans, finance improvements in their homes and consolidate debts.
In general, there can be various reasons for encouraging people to release equity but experts in this field should help them thoroughly understand the essence from the beginning.
