Options for funding a retirement

Equity release schemes are usually a way to keep your home, but only repay the interest each month. In some cases you might not pay anything at all. The amount borrowed is still due, but you can repay it by selling your home. The amount borrowed will be deducted if you sell your property, go into full-time care or die. It will reduce the amount of inheritance you can leave to your children, and they may not receive anything at all if the sale price is low. This is something that you should not be worried about. It’s a risk the lender must take.
