Equity Release Mortgages

As an aging population, more and more homeowners over the age of 55 are looking to arrange an Equity Release mortgage for a variety of reasons including;

  • Repayment of an interest only mortgage
  • Consolidation of secured and unsecured loans or debts
  • Releasing equity to gift to children as a deposit
  • Home upgrades or improvements

Gone are the days where interest dates on an equity release are high, with many mainstream and well-known lender institutions now offering a variety of later life lending, rates are comparatively low at the moment which potentially makes it a good time to act if you are thinking of applying.

You will need a trusted (and we would suggest an independent) equity release adviser who will be able to compare the different types of products and lenders to suit your requirements.

Whilst we cannot advise you which product to choose, we can always recommend a good financial adviser to you if needed.

Equity Releases are still tarnished with the bad reputation that they got before the regulations came into force, the good news is that post regulation, the lenders have to adhere to strict guidelines meaning a fixed rate of interest, a no negative equity guarantee and protected percentages to name but a few features that help to protect you and your home.

It is very important to choose a solicitor that not only specialises in this type of work but that is also local enough to you as you will be required to attend a friendly and informative face to face meeting as part of the process.

At Paul Robinson Solicitors we can offer meetings at all 5 of our locations to suit and home visits are available upon request.

As far as fees are concerned, this type of work is fixed fee and if the matter proceeds, can be paid at the point of completion so that you only need to worry about choosing the right Equity Release product for you.

Let’s talk!

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

Natasha Kelt, Dispute Resolution

I would like to thank you for a superb job well done. When you have never been in the position I found myself in, it was your calm and confident manner that reassured me you would do your very best. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires legal advice.

Jemmar Attfield, Commercial

We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.

Lee Hibell, Private Client
I cannot praise you and your team enough for the professional way you handled my situation, you have been so kind and reassuring in what has been a very emotional and distressing time.
Melanie Steeples, Family

I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

Amber Day, Property

Thank you for your prompt and concise response. That certainly makes things very clear and straight forward. Overall thank you for all your help and advice……. Should I need a solicitor in the future I will be sure to call your firm.

Michelle Breindel, Crime & Motoring
