Help with Equity Release and Lifetime Mortgages
An equity release or lifetime mortgage is a way of releasing capital from your home to fund other projects.
If you are aged 55 or over you can choose from a range of schemes that are suited to your circumstances and that will provide you with the capital that you need for things such as travel, later life care, or extra income in retirement.
Jarmans Solicitors are not financial advisers so we can’t give you advice or options on schemes; you will need to talk to a specialist financial advisor for that, but we can give you the legal advice that you need if you do decide that later life lending is for you.
Why do you need legal advice?
It’s important that you take independent legal advice when you are considering an equity release scheme and is usually required by your equity release provider.
Our team of specialist solicitors will sit down with you and ensure that you understand the equity release contract, including all of the risks and rewards connected to it. An equity release contract is designed to last for your lifetime or until you move into full time residential care (or the survivor/second of you if you are joint borrowers) and is connected to your greatest asset, your home, so it’s vital that you are fully aware of the benefits and risks of signing a contractual agreement.
If you are over 55 years old and have already spoken to a financial advisor about releasing your home’s equity, contact us for independent legal representation.

From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
