There are many reasons why your equity release application may be rejected such as:
Near to Commercial Property e.g. Public House or Launderette
Other hazards e.g. motorway, electricity stations, pylons etc
Single skin brick
Ex Local Authority property
Spray foam under roof
Cluttered property inside
You should be mindful of reasons why property may be suitable when applying for equity release but also if you are buying a home anyway, look out for reasons which may detract from your ability later to either sell your home or use equity release.
