Our equity release services
Your home could be the key to a happy retirement…
A lifetime mortgage is where you take out a loan secured against your property. This means you still get to keep your home and you can even put aside some of the value of your property as an inheritance for your family.
Home Reversion Plans
Home Reversion plans can be a good choice if you need to pay for your care and you want to stay in your home. You can choose from a lump-sum payment or regular monthly payments throughout your life.
Home Income Plans
Release a cash sum from your property with a home income plan. You can use this to buy an Annuity, giving you a monthly income. All you have to do is pay interest on the loan, either all at once or when you receive your monthly payments.
We ask each of our clients for feedback so we can develop our services on a continuous basis. Here’s what some of our clients think of the services provided by Birchall Blackburn Law.

How can equity release help you and your family?
From travelling to home improvements, equity release frees up money so you can improve your lifestyle while keeping the family home.
We know downsizing isn’t for everyone – it can be costly and could potentially involve uprooting your life if you have close friends and family in the area. Equity release can also be a great option if you want to help your children or grandchildren financially.
So, whether you want to boost your disposable income or leave a tax-free inheritance gift to your loved ones, equity release could be the option for you.
