What does the Equity Release Council do?

The Council informs people about equity release, and ensures their rights are safeguarded through a set of standards and principles. These apply to the products themselves, and the support offered to customers.

Taking out equity release means getting financial advice, and the Equity Release Council can help here too. On their site you can match up with an adviser that’s agreed to stick to the Council rules. So, you can be confident you won’t be pushed to take out a product if it doesn’t meet your needs.
