Equity Release Lenders
SimplyBiz Mortgages works with the biggest and best lenders in the market to create this equity release proposition. We believe that the products provided by the lenders offer flexibility and variety which will cater to your clients' needs in this fast growing business area.
Later Life Lenders
Later life lending can be suitable for many uses. Usually these mortgages are traditional mortgage lending where the financial institution permits a longer lending term. The lenders in this area are keen to support advisers with clients looking to borrow additional funds.
Retirement interest-only mortgage solutions are similar to standard interest-only mortgages where the difference is in the fact that the loan amount is usually paid down when the borrower’s property is sold due to death or having moved into long-term care. The lenders in this area currently offer this specific product type.
If you don't hold the relevant permissions to conduct equity release business, or just prefer to concentrate on other areas of specialism within your firm, these companies are able to take on cases from your clients in this area.
To undertake equity release business, there are specific regulatory requirements to which you need to adhere.
In this section, we have pulled together the key documents to help support you when dealing with clients and we would also suggest that you visit the vulnerability hub in order to ensure you meet requirements in that area also.
There are a number of important elements in any property transaction, particularly equity release, where experience and knowledge is paramount.
This area will give you access to valuable information to support your understanding of the variety of products available to your older clients looking for solutions in later life lending.
Our Vulnerability Hub brings together information and resources on every aspect, from support with policy and procedures to tackling challenging conversations with clients.
