Business as usual

Read more about how you can still look at Equity Release during these difficult times

With social distancing rules now in place and restrictions on home visits, can you still look at Equity Release as an option for you?


We are all having to adapt our lives to the new restrictions in place, and for some companies this is proving more difficult than for others. At Your Time Equity Release we have always offered our full Equity Release service from a distance over the phone, on line or by post. It is therefore business as usual.

All our advisers are working from home.

All of our dedicated and highly experienced advisers are currently working remotely from home, but still have access to all the lender information in the market. We can still offer you ‘live’ interest rate and loan information over the phone, quickly and without a lengthy conversation.

Valuations can still go ahead even in areas in lockdown.

As part of the process your home will need to be independently valued and this normally involves a physcial viewing of your home.  We have received confirmation from lenders that physical valuations can still be carried out in all parts of the UK, subject to Covid safety measures being put in place. This is the case for the whole of the UK, despite the different lockdown measures which have been implemented in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

If you are isolating or are not happy about someone visiting your home a remote valuation can take place.

If you are not comfortable with someone visiting your home or you are self isolating for any reason, the valuation of your home can be completed on a remote basis.  if you would prefer a remote valution to be carried out, please mention this to your adviser and they will confirm what affect this will have and what options are open to you.

Solicitors have measures in place to ensure your safety.

The Equity Release Council have strict rules in place stating that you must obtain independent legal advice during the application process and that this meeting must be face to face. Due to the current restrictions the Equity Release Council has relaxed this rule slightly and some solicitors have put in place measures to ensure you are still receiving fully independent legal advice, but can also ensure your safety and security while meeting social distancing rules.

If you remain unsure or are still concerned about any aspect of the process at this time, don’t worry, we can always put your enquiry on hold at any point during the process and look at it again when you are more comfortable. You are never under any obligation to go ahead with any of our recommendations and will never be charged any fees unless the application completes.
