How to live off equity

At the end of the year as we get closer to Christmas, I always find people start thinking about how great it would be if they didn't have to go back to work. This brings them to thinking about how much they will need for each year of retirement and how to go about accessing their equity.

This excludes stamp duty and legal costs paid when purchasing the property. So your conve…
