Equity release… in the comfort of your own home

Published: 27/08/2014

Equity release is growing in popularity as many older homeowners look to utilise their property’s value to subsidise deflated pensions and savings, pay off debts or help loved ones raise a deposit for their own home.

If you have decided to take out an equity release plan, it is important you get both professional advice from a financial and legal expert. A financial adviser can help you find the right plan and rate for you as well as explain the financial implications equity release can have on your future finances. An equity release lawyer, meanwhile, can outline the legal nature and effects of your chosen plan.

Following a recent rule change by the Equity Release Council (ERC), every homeowner releasing equity must been seen by a solicitor or suitably qualified equity release lawyer at least once during their equity release journey.

While some solicitors expect clients to come to them, Goldsmith Williams offers a unique home visit service. This means our lawyers can visit you in the comfort of your own home and at a time most convenient to you – all at no extra cost.

Richard Espley is the Head of Equity Release at Goldsmith Williams. He is very proud of this distinctive service:

“At Goldsmith Williams we have always put the needs of our clients at the forefront of everything we do and our home visit service continues that tradition, Clients appreciate the additional security and convenience of a home visit appointment and have responded extremely well to the service.
