Equity Loan: FAQ

What does market value mean?

It is important you understand the basis on which your property is valued when calculating the amount you may have to pay if you are repaying your Equity Loan in full or partially or you are changing the ownership of your property.

The market value for these purposes is the price a willing buyer will pay to a willing seller on the open market with vacant possession on the basis that you have fully and properly maintained, repaired and decorated your property.

If you are selling the property you must agree the market value with Equity Loan Provider by contacting Ascent on 0333 010 0067 before you agree your sale.

My Equity Loan has expired, what do I do next?

Our team will contact you in advance of your loan maturing by way of reminder. It is important that you make arrangements to repay redeem your equity loan in full on or before the expiry date.
What if I cannot afford to pay?

If you are not able to repay your Equity Loan you should contact us at the earliest opportunity to discuss your situation and options available to you.

Ignoring the situation could result in your home being put at risk. Calling us on 0333 010 0067 will allow us the opportunity to work with you to find a solution.

We would also encourage you to seek ‘Independent Advice & Help’. Please use our dedicated “Help” section via this link which is designed to help you understand any actions you should consider taking.

What happens if I don’t pay my Equity Loan on redemption?

Your home may be repossessed and sold to repay your outstanding Equity Loan. It is therefore very important that if you feel you are not able to repay your Equity Loan that you call us on 0333 010 0067 at the earliest opportunity to discuss your situation and options available to you.

Will Costs and/or Interest be added to my debt after the repayment date?
