Good afternoon,

I’m coming up to the end of my 5th year and we’ve just been declined the equity release, even though there is equity available. Our wording states ‘3rd Party payment will be required’ or 12 further payments. I’ve read a lot about secured loans but there is nothing mentioned on my paperwork.
Can you please confirm what the likely outcome would be?

Thanks

Personally, I would go for the extra 12 months.

The most likely outcome will be the 12 month extension. Your IVA terms are pre-2014 so will not, assuming you have the usual clauses, force secured lending on you.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I suspect that you could opt for the secured loan but it will likely cost you more in the long run.

The 12 month extnsion is likely to apply (depending on the level of your equitable interest)

That is my intention, providing it’s the option. Thanks

Thanks Foggy, I’m hoping that is the case

Thanks Lisa, I believe there was only approx £8000 that could have been taken from Equity release. There is no wording in relation to secured loan, which I don’t want anyway.

Just waiting to hear back from the IP.
