Equity release is fast becoming a preferred route for many who find themselves in debt management plans. Debt management plans are a popular way of managing debt which could otherwise spiral. However, they are a solution that still requires regular monthly repayments. Equity release is particularly attractive in these cases as there are no monthly repayments to make. The amount one can release with an equity release plan often exceeds the average debt levels of those in a debt management plan; leaving the customer debt-free with extra capital to enjoy life and enough equity left in the home to leave an inheritance to loved ones.
