Equity Release

We are delighted that you have chosen Barton Law Ltd to help you through the equity release process and promise to make the journey as straightforward and seamless as we possibly can. The process begins with initial talks between you and your financial adviser, who will discuss the process prior to Barton Law Ltd being instructed. The financial adviser will also advise you on which equity release product is the best one for you and your current financial situation. There are a wide range of options but it is important to pick the one that is most suitable for your financial needs. 

After that has been decided, Barton Law Ltd will guide you through the legal implications of the product to make sure you fully understand exactly what you are doing. 

Barton Law’s committed and hard working team will open a file and issue initial paperwork that you will have to complete and return to them. 

When those documents are completed and returned to Barton Law, our team will be able to proceed the legal side of the transaction in order for the process to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

The lender will then issue a formal offer to the client and at this point Barton Law will give you legal advice and arrange a face to face meeting, which usually takes place at your home to discuss the offer, sign all relevant papers and discuss the next steps in the process. 

We will then send the papers to the lender’s solicitor, who will carry out their own review with a  view to setting a date for completion.  Once the documents are approved and a completion date is decided upon, Barton Law Ltd will confirm the final figure that you will receive and if you are happy to proceed and complete the process, funds will then be transferred to you on the date of completion.”
We are dedicated to providing a friendly and amiable service to all of our clients and we can provide legal advice either in person at our headquarters or at a location best suited to you. 

Our role is to ensure clients fully understand the equity release procedure, the legal implications of the documentation required during the process and to explain the impact on their estate for their family and beneficiaries of their wills. 

Clients are always concerned about how safe they are both during and after the equity release process but regulation by the Equity Release Council ensures all products are accompanied with a number of guarantees. These include guarantees that you will be financially safe in your home for the rest of your life, you will leave no negativity equity behind and there will be assets left for the future.

There is no denying that equity release is a significant financial transaction for all of our clients and, due to its importance and the impact on family members, they must seek specialist independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity. 

Barton Law is also a member of the Equity Release Solicitors Alliance, which allows all homeowners to gain access to independent solicitors to guide them through the equity release process.
