Equilaw offers a market leading service equity release legal advice service.  This is recognised by financial advisers and clients alike for its expertise and friendly approach, with no legal jargon – guaranteed!

 Equilaw are recommended by financial advisers across England and Wales for their expertise and client care in the equity release sector.   It is a requirement that your clients visit a solicitor in order to complete their equity release transaction. At Equilaw®, they have the experience and knowledge of the equity release market and constantly review the available products. 

This enables them to give bespoke guidance as to the details of the equity release plan that you have recommended and the legal obligations that attach to it. They do not tread on the toes of the adviser by recommending products or by discussing product suitability.  In their experience, clients prefer to work with financial advisers who work closely with a leading solicitor in the field as it provides added assurance in the equity release process. 

Equilaw’s® service includes: 

• Fixed fee of £390 plus VAT and disbursements (Special deal for members
