We are pleased to confirm that James Stopford and Mortgage Quest are voluntary members of the Equity Release Council.






The Equity Release council exists to promote high standards of conduct and practice in the provision of equity release advice.

Equity Release, or Lifetime Mortgages provide tax-free cash or income to help support you financially throughout retirement, giving you the freedom to spend the proceeds on anything to make life more enjoyable including:

  • Home or garden improvements
  • Paying off existing debts
  • Helping your children or grandchildren with a deposit for a home
  • Holidays or holiday homes
  • Increasing retirement income
  • Healthcare
  • Buying a new car
  • Inheritance Tax Planning
  • Repaying an existing mortgage

Important points:

  • The amount you borrow is dependent on your age and the value of the property
  • Interest is charged on the amount throughout your lifetime
  • You continue to own and live in your home
  • You do not have to repay the loan until you die, or go into long term care

You can also take smaller sums over a period of time, this is called a Drawdown Lifetime Mortgage and you only incur interest on the money you release (if you take a drawdown lifetime mortgage, it's important to consider a Lasting Power of Attorney, which we can help you with).

There are implications of adding previously unsecured debt onto a loan secured against your property such as increased interest costs over a longer term and reducing the equity in your property.

Releasing funds could adversely affect your entitlement to means tested benefits and careful consideration should be given to current and future benefits.
