Simple, Transparent Pricing

We at Easyknock believe transparency isn’t a perk, it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, too many companies with equity release solutions sneak in costs and fees. Our goal is to make every single cost transparent to you.

Rent

We do our best to base your rent off of comparable homes in your area. However, there are additional factors that impact how we determine rent. Remember a lease with EasyKnock includes your option value, so when you decide to repurchase or to move, you’ll retain your portion of equity and if applicable, appreciation.

Option

Repurchase
The price to repurchase your home is the funding amount plus 5%  within your first lease year. Each subsequent year that price increases by the greater of CPI (consumer price index) or 2.5% of the funding amount.

Sell and Move
If you decide to move, you will receive the remaining Sellout Value. The Sellout Value is the price at which the home is sold for, minus that year’s repurchase price as defined above, in addition to closing costs.
