What is Compound Interest and How Does it Apply to Equity Release?
Compound interest is the interest that accrues on the principal loan amount and any previously accrued interest.
This means that the amount of interest owed can grow exponentially over time, making it a key factor to consider when taking out any loan, including an equity release plan.
When you take out an equity release plan, you receive a lump sum or regular payments in exchange for a portion of the equity in your home.
This means that the interest on your loan is charged on the loan amount, plus any interest that has already accrued. As time goes by, the interest adds up and the total amount owed can increase significantly.
For example, if you take out an equity release plan with an interest rate of 5% and borrow £50,000, after one year you would owe £52,500 in total.
This is because the 5% interest is calculated not only on the initial loan amount of £50,000, but also on the interest that has accrued over the year, which is £2,500.
Over time, the amount owed can continue to grow as interest continues to compound.
