Equity release services 

Your home could be the key to a happy retirement…

Did you know? Up to £340,000 in equity per home is tied up in homes owned by people aged 55 and over. Birchall Blackburn Law have helped thousands of retired homeowners unlock the equity in their homes, in order to provide a tax-free lump sum, a regular income, or both. Our specialists have also provided independent legal advice to guide them through the process every step of the way.

Do I qualify?

◊ Are you aged 55+?

◊ Is your property based in the UK?

◊ Do you own a property with a value 

   of at least £70,000?

How can we help?

We advise on the following types of equity release plans:

◊ Lifetime mortgages: Mortgaging the home, which is secured on the property.

◊ Reversion plans: Selling all, or part of, the property but retaining the right to live there for the rest of your lifetime.

◊ Home income plans: Release cash from your property and buy an Annuity, which gives you a monthly income.

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 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.
