Home reversion works in a different way to traditional mortgages as the homeowner sells part of their property to the reversion company in exchange for a cash lump sum.
The property is placed in the ownership of a reversion company. Whilst this means will not get the full market value for your house, you do have the right to remain in your home rent free.
This scheme lets you know what proportion of your property you’re leaving as an inheritance. Simultaneously, you gain a large lump sum of money from your home. You’re free to use this money for any purpose, and you don’t have to worry about interest rates – your share of the property never changes and your share of the property still benefits from house price increase.
Things To Consider
With home reversion you have the right to remain in your home rent free, on top of the large lump sum of money you will receive for the part sale of your house. You might be able to raise more money than a mortgage in the long term, and this offers a less complex plan as you immediately know what you’re leaving as an inheritance.
You might also be able to raise more money than a mortgage in the long term, and this offers a less complex plan as you immediately know what you’re leaving as an inheritance. With the lump sum of money you receive you can spend the money on anything you like.
