Equity Release


Many people that are 55 years’ old or over; use equity release to unlock house value from their homes. Released equity can be used for essential home maintenance and repairs; to gift children or grandchildren a lump sum as part of living inheritance planning, or to supplement later life income. A range of equity release finance products, including lifetime mortgages; are available. Very often equity release comes from a home that will form part of inheritance. We understand that equity release decisions can impact families, and more than one generation. We have dedicated equity release specialists here at Marchwood IFA. This is so that you can make far reaching financial decisions with confidence.

How we consult with you

We like to start with a face to face meeting. This allows us to understand your financial aims and your current finances. We will explain how equity release works and what the pros and cons are. We will also discuss equity release alternatives. Our first consultation with you is free; we will not make any recommendations during this meeting.

At our next consultation we will present products that we believe are the most suitable for you. We expect that you will have lots of questions for us. We will do our best to answer those questions and to explain everything to you in plain English. We will leave you with a finance illustration of the product. We will give you time to reflect on all of the information that we have provided to you.

Assuming that you wish to go ahead, we will arrange a further meeting to complete the mortgage application; and to answer any further questions that you may have.


I found the service outstanding from the initial meeting we had to completion of the release. Marchwood as a team made us feel safe in what we were doing and helped us look at every angle before we committed. I can highly recommend them to anyone that is in need of professional advice.


How we charge

We charge a flat fee for advising on equity release mortgages which is £495.00. This fee is payable on successful completion of the equity release mortgage.

In addition to our fee, lenders pay commission based on the value of the mortgage loan. This commission will be disclosed to you in the finance illustrations that we provide.

Should you change your mind prior to completion of the mortgage; and decide not to go ahead, then you will not be charged – there will be no fee.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up mortgage payments.
