A reverse mortgage is a loan product that lets you use the equity in your home to assist with funding your retirement. That assistance might be needed to modify your home, or to make a one-off payment such as a vehicle purchase. Or, it might be that you draw a little bit each month to just make your day to day experience that little bit more pleasant.
There are special rules that apply to reverse mortgages that help you better manage the loan and any associated risk. This is why reverse mortgages are unlike other types of loan that you might be used to. We can help you establish the loan and then use it to best suit your particular situation.
If you think a reverse mortgage would suit you, please get in touch. To us, there is nothing more rewarding than helping a valued client remain living in their own home and enjoying the independence that goes with that.
