When it comes to property, there is often talk about different loan types and the release of equity to be able to spend on other things such as home improvements. By understanding the type of mortgage, you are currently on and the flexibility of releasing equity will depend on your lender and individual circumstances.

We’ve put together a guide on releasing equity and what your options are to help you understand the complex market of property. Please see our equity release guide.
