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 simplistic and seamless as we possibly can. The process begins with initial talks between the client and your financial adviser about which equity release product is the best one for you and your current situation.
There is a wide range of options but it’s important to pick the one that is most suitable for your needs. After that has been decided, Barton Law Ltd will guide you through the contents of the product to make sure you fully understand everything. When that process is complete the client will be able to make a knowledgeable decision on whether or not to proceed. 

If you decide to go ahead the lender will then contact you, the borrower, to book in a time and date to view your property so they can carry out a valuation. Meanwhile, Barton Law’s committed and hard-working team will open a case file and issue basic paperwork that you will have to complete. 

When those documents are completed and returned to Barton Law, our team will start to make inroads into 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 the property but can also be held virtually because of Covid-19, to discuss the offer and the next steps in the process.
The client will then fill out all the relevant documents following the offer. Barton Law Ltd will then send the files on to the lender’s solicitor, who will carry out their own review with a view towards setting a date for completion. Once the documents are approved and a competition date is decided upon, Barton Law Ltd will confirm the final proceeds figure that the client will be entitled to over the phone. If the client is happy to proceed and complete the process, funds will then be instantly transferred to your account.
