What are the costs of setting up an Equity Release Mortgage?

There are four main costs for completing an Equity Release mortgage: 

Lender fees

The majority of deals we source for clients do not incur a fee.

Valuation fees

In most instances, when you complete an application with Ocean, the lenders pay the valuation fee on your behalf.

Solicitor Fees

These are generally around £850 including VAT.

Broker Fees

Ocean charge 2% of the amount you borrow, subject to a minimum of £1,495. The fees associated with Equity Release can be added to any loan you take out. Please remember that any fees added to the loan will incur interest throughout the loan period.
