Express: Housing Equity -> Pensions

Recommended Posts

Wierdly, featured on the BBC in the papers. Well, I guess its the beebs housing article.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/property/471286/Pensioners-rush-to-cash-in-on-property-values

I thought the Express were saying people were going to take money out of their pension and put it in to housing.

The article is advertorial for equity release.

Oh this comment's a classic, beyond satire:

'We retireds should enjoy life, spend our wealth and allow the next generation to make its own way, as we did.'

Ohh all that hard worked for equity.

Incidently, hearing on the grapevine that most pension withdrawals will be p1ssed away on sustaining an unaffordable lifestyle. Which, when you see the yields and voids of BTLs, is probably a much more sound financial investment.

Hey, Why do youy write that they are 'forced' to do this? It is perfectly logical to deplete ones assets over the declining years. Most children no longer accomodate aged parents. They put them in care home or let the state take care of them. Why should they inherit.
We retireds should enjoy life, spend our wealth and allow the next generation to make its own way, as we did.

I'm going long on cruise ship companies.
