Canada Life has rebranded Retirement Advantage’s Equity Release to Canada Life Home Finance.

The product has an interest rate of 5.29% and is available to over-60s on properties worth up to £6m, with a minimum loan amount of £250,000.

Borrowers can receive a lump sum of 3% of the value of their initial loan, an option designed to help in paying legal and adviser fees.
