The downside of downsizing in old age

We’re all familiar with the concept of downsizing. When your current home becomes too much to manage, or your children have flown the nest and you no longer need the space, it may make sense to sell up and move to a smaller home. The funds thus released can be used to supplement your retirement income, or help out a child or grandchild financially, e.g. to get on the housing ladder.However, as equity release specialist John Whyte points out, downsizing isn’t always as simple as putting the house on the market, and nor is it always the right solution. So, before you proceed with the sale of your family home in order to access the equity locked up in it, it pays to consider these 6 important questions: Where would you move to? Would you want to move to a different area in the country – perhaps to a rural...

The loss and/or damage of your personal property is one thing – you will have to deal with the police, there are financial implications to contend with, insurance companies to haggle with, and there’s the sheer pain and injustice of it all. In addition, there’s the sentimental value of stolen items that are often simply irreplaceable. And while all this is bad enough, the sense of safety in your own home may be gone forever. Crime statistics always make grim reading, even though domestic burglary offences actually fell from 2015 to 2016, and are down by 71% since 1995. However, the fear of crime remains high – and this is a powerful motivator for any householders to take action. If you want to protect your...
