Future proofing a home for later life

When you think of your home, what do you think of? What are the memories that make your home unique, and personal to you?

After all we all know that it is the memories and the people who really make a house a real home.

Homes are more than just the bricks they are built with, they tell a story of our lives and how we’ve lived them.

It’s easy to notice all the great things we love about our home, and all the things we’d want to improve to keep us living there longer.

These improvements could come in the form of installing that dream bath you’ve always wanted for a bit of downtime, or modifying your kitchen so that your partner (who might fancy themselves a bit of a chef) can have all the space they need to cook you the perfect date night feast.

The improvements could also mean future proofing your house to make it safer and more accessible later on in life.

What changes would you make if you had the extra money to future proof your home?


Equity release could be the option for you

Equity release is a way to unlock the value of your property and turn it into a cash lump sum. It essentially allows you to ‘release’ – the equity (cash) tied up in your home, if you’re 55+.

As a rule, you can take the money you release in one lump sum, in several smaller amounts on which you’ll pay interest, or as a combination of both.
