Can you release equity from your home?

It is possible to release equity on a second home, that is not your main residence or on a buy to let property or a portfolio of buy to let properties. The amounts you can release on a second home or buy to let properties will be lower than on your main residence.
What you do with the money you release is almost entirely up to you.
You can use your money to:
Repay your existing mortgage and have no further monthly repayments
Repay any loans, credit cards or other debts
Make some home improvements
Take that dream holiday you have always wanted
Buy a new car
Help out the family
Simply help to improve your lifestyle
Or one of many other reasons, the possibilities are almost endless
