How our equity release calculator works

The amount of equity you can release from your home with a lifetime mortgage comes down to your age and the value of the property. The older you are, the more equity you can release, usually up to just under 60% of your home’s value with most equity release providers.

Our calculator takes these numbers into account and helps you work out the maximum amount of equity you can unlock based on the age of the youngest homeowner and the property value. This calculator is free and does not require you to enter any personal details beyond your age.

The results, which are also relevant for interest-only lifetime mortgages, present your maximum equity release amount and reveal what percentage of your home’s value this would equate to.

Is a home reversion plan calculated differently?

The calculations used are similar to those of a lifetime mortgage, but the terms of the agreement and the way a home reversion plan works sets this type of equity release apart.

The minority of equity release providers who still enter these agreements usually offer eligible customers between 30% and 60% of their home’s market value as either a cash sum or regular payments, though it is also possible to sell the entire property to a specialist provider.

Bear in mind that most equity release experts do not recommend home reversion plans and would urge homeowners to consider lifetime mortgages or retirement interest-only (RIO) mortgages instead. This is because these alternatives can potentially provide the same amount of capital without you having to relinquish ownership of your property.
