All you need to know about Dept & Equity
Knowing the difference between debt and equity is key to unlocking the true wealth of your property. Under the traditional format of mortgage lending, a homeowner could borrow more to raise the necessary capital for a project, repairs or simply to free up some cash (debt financing), or he/she could sell or remortgage the property to get hold of the equity (equity financing).

WHAT WE AIM TO DO
How HiP can help you unleash your property wealth
We believe that homeowners should be able to benefit from the equity built up in their homes how and when they want. We believe that being able to access your equity can improve your finances.
How your equity can help you in the hard times
Remember the phrase that is drummed into every homeowners’ head: “Your home is at risk if you do not keep up repayments”? In normal circumstances, if you miss one month’s payment on your mortgage, you receive a warning from your lender. Miss three month’s payments, and your home will become repossessed. Not with HiP.
With HiP, it doesn’t matter if you skip a month, or a longer. Your equity will cover any months where you’re not able to pay the usual amount. This would be idea for anyone in a situation where they could do with some extra cash for a
period of time.
How you can get away with NEVER paying your mortgage
In certain situations, like in London, there are some property values that are increasing by a few thousand pounds every month. On the HiP platform, in theory, you could get away without making a monthly repayments for years, as the fast growing equity would be able to cover any repayments. Of course, many homeowners would like to keep paying into their loan regardless of their home’s value increase, but it does highlight how incredibly powerful equity can be.
Other people can invest in YOUR house with THEIR equity (…and you can do it too).
This is where it gets interesting. You have equity in your house. You know HiP allows you to access it anytime. But the money in your home isn’t working to its full potential. In fact it’s just sitting there.
What if you could transfer your equity into a property in an area that is seeing huge rises in prices?
Kate’s option 1: receive earnings monthly
Kate can get any earnings from it monthly, and if it receives rental income, kate receives a fraction of the rent.
Kate’s option 2: Wait for growth in value
Kate can leave it in the property and let it grow in value – the owner must pay her back when they move or sell, just like a mortgage.
Kate’s option 3: Complete Flexibility
Or Kate can move between the first two options, depending on her current circumstances. In fact, thanks to HiP re-working the rules on home ownership and unleashing equity, being a property landlord has never been so attainable.
So while Kate’s repayments might go up on their own house, that will be more than covered by the income received on the equity in the house in London.
Example of how it works
Here is Kate from Bristol
Kate has £100,000 equity in her home. However, property prices in that particular area are steady but slow. In order to get more from her money, she decides to transfer her equity into a house situated in a faster moving economy like London. On the left are Kate’s options with HiP
