Burtons is proud to announce that Maria Parker has joined the Equity Release Council.
Equity Release used to have a bad name with lots of horror stories about people losing their houses in return for a few thousand pounds, but the market has changed and part of this is down to the efforts of the Equity Release Council, who have sought to drive standards up and which is why our Maria Parker has joined. It gives reassurance to our clients that they are dealing with a professional who has experience and can assist them.
Many new products have been released which include being able you to live in your home and still leave some money from the home in your Will. It is no longer just about signing over your house for a cash advance; however you should always seek independent financial advice before entering into the transaction.
Equity Release has its place to help those who have money tied up in their home and find themselves asset rich and cash poor, releasing this money can help with many problems. As stated above, before considering it you should obtain independent financial advice about what is available and suitable for you.
Maria Parker has undertaken many Equity Release transactions and is well placed to provide you with the assistance you need.
