Equity release

It is so important to have a firm of solicitors you can trust to guide you through a re-mortgage/mortgage of your property. A solicitor is required to act on your behalf in this transaction and one of our conveyancing specialists will ensure the right procedures are followed.

We usually estimate that a transaction will take six to eight weeks however, like in all things, some matters may be speedier and some longer, it is all dependant on the nature of the transaction. 

When carrying out your Equity Release the main stages are: 

  • Receive offer of mortgage
  • Order searches (if required)
  • Review offer of mortgage and any search results
  • Prepare Mortgage Report
  • Attend upon you to answer any queries you may have and execute documentation
  • Discuss completion dates
  • Request redemption statement of any existing mortgage and request mortgage monies on any new mortgage
  • Complete your re-mortgage/mortgage
  • Register your new mortgage over the property with HM Land Registry
  • Check the register of title is correct and provide you with the relevant completed documentation
