Can I Change My Equity Release Plan?

If you find a more competitive plan, you may be eligible to change your equity release scheme. You may also release more equity if your home increases in value, or pay the plan off early.

Remember that you will be paying more than you received in the initial loan however and some plans do carry an early repayment fee. All of these factors should be taken into account before proceeding and it is always best to discuss your personal situation with a financial adviser.
