EQUITY RELEASE

WHAT IS EQUITY RELEASE?

Equity release is a product that allows you to unlock cash from the value of your home.

The type of equity release we advise upon are lifetime mortgages. It’s a long-term loan on the value of your home, which is repaid, usually from the sale of your home, when you (and your partner, for joint lifetime mortgages) die or need to go into long-term care.

Whatever financial freedom means to you in later life – renovating your home, helping your children, or simply boosting your income – equity release is designed to help.

HOW DO INTEREST AND REPAYMENTS WORK?

You don’t need to make any monthly repayments. Instead, interest is added each year, both to the initial loan amount and any interest previously added, which quickly increases the amount you owe. The interest rate is fixed, so it won’t ever go up.
For example, one year after taking out a £30,000 lump sum with an interest rate of 4%, the interest would be £1,200. This is added to your initial cash amount, so your balance at the start of the second year would be £31,200. You do have the option of paying the interest on a monthly basis to stop the interest payments rolling up

WILL YOU RECEIVE YOUR MONEY ALL AT ONCE?

You can choose either to receive a one-off lump sum payment, or choose to receive a smaller lump sum and set up a cash reserve to draw from when you wish. So, whether you’re paying the deposit for a loved one’s first home, helping with your grandchildren’s tuition fees, or just treating yourself to a few of life’s little luxuries, you can take the money in the way that suits you best.

Just remember that taking out any form of equity release will reduce the amount of inheritance you can leave behind. It may also affect your tax position and eligibility for welfare benefits.

I could not of asked for a better service. Everything was explained to me by Dave Clark, and never rushed me in any way and if i didn’t understand, time was not a problem, Dave would stay til I did. Dave took loads of pressure of buying a home, even down to helping with house insurance and life cover, I can’t speak anymore highly of him.

Mark Langham

Linton has advised us financially for the last 3 years providing us with guidance and recommendations for pensions and investments. He is always extremely professional, helpful and friendly.

I’d recommend Tallow’s financial service to anyone looking for advice regarding financial planning. Linton Henfrey has been my personal contact there for over ten years and has helped me with a cross section of service from life insurance, mortgage and wills to investment. Latterly we’ve worked together year by year on an investment scheme that suits my circumstances and we are now seeing the benefits in a healthy profit! I’m very pleased with my experiences to date and am excited to work with them in the future.

Richard Eastwood

I have found Tallow Financial planning LTD to be reliable, trustworthy and reasonably priced in my dealings with them, I believe that they want the best for their clients and have always found them to be very friendly and professional.

Michael Graham

We feel very fortunate to have had Linton recommended to us. He answered all of our queries with ease, responded to emails quickly. Linton is extremely knowledgeable and confident in his field, he’s also a personable guy, easy to talk to too. We have no hesitation in recommending him and Tallow Financial Planning Services to family and friends.

Bev W

Being a first-time buyer has been the most exciting but also the most stressful thing in my life to date but every time I emailed or called Dave at Tallow Financial Planning Ltd, I felt confident and positive that everything was being handled professionally. Not only did they secure my mortgage after being told I couldn’t get a mortgage under my financial circumstances elsewhere, they also sorted my life and home insurance out which gave me peace of mind that I was covered under the best policies available in my budget. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get a mortgage and to discuss the best current mortgage deals out there!

Rob Lee

Linton has advised us financially for almost 20 years and has always been extremely professional and helpful at all times. His friendly manner has made him feel like part of the family over the years as well as an advisor. More importantly he has always and continues to make us money through our investment.

Ann Lennon

I have been a client of Tallow Financial Planning Ltd for over 27 years. Over the years Linton John Henfrey and his team have saved me a significant amount of money. They have always been very professional, and have a thorough knowledge of the financial markets. Linton, Dave and Callum always give me extra time answering my questions in order for me to understand any details before making any decisions. I was offered advice two years ago from Dave regarding my morgage and was advised to get a 5 year fixed term which takes me to the end of my morgage. Currently with the cost of living crisis, this advice was invaluable. Particularly reassuring to me is the feeling of certainty and absoloute integrity of their dealings with me. I would like to express my thanks for all the hard work over the years and would not hesitate to recommend Tallow Financial Planning Ltd. to others.

Steve Armstrong

Linton and his team have taken care of us for several years. He is friendly, professional and explains everything clearly and impartially. He has taken care of our finances profitably and given excellent advice through the years. We enjoy his company and always look forward to his visits.

Anna Harris

I have had dealings with members of the Tallow Financial Planning team for circa 30 years ranging from numerous mortgages, investments, pensions and retirement planning.
During this time they have always been extremely conscientious, hard working and swift to respond to my needs.
I have always found their customer service, customer confidentiality and general customer welfare to be of the highest standard.
I have over the years recommended Tallow to my family and friends and will continue to do so in the future.
