Equity Release Council

Making equity release safe for you



Financial advice a vital factor in decision making


When considering how best to fund your retirement, getting regulated advice that is related to your personal circumstances is key. With more and more people spending their savings or turning to credit as a short term solution, equity release could offer a longer term answer.


There are a range of products and options available, and it is crucial to seek advice when reviewing your options. You can work with an adviser to make a choice that best suits your needs at a time in life when borrowing options are often limited.


All of The Council’s member follow a strict Statement of Principles, which ensures they act in your best interests. As an equity release customer, you have the right to independent legal advice so you fully understand the cost and commitments involved. You will also retain the right of tenancy as long as your property remains your primary home – and you will never owe more than the value of your home.
