Think carefully before securing other debts against your home.

A lifetime mortgage is a loan secured against your home. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration. Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and may affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
