Equity Release Solicitor
Equity release allows a person to release money from their property, enabling them to live in their home for the rest of their life and remain the legal owner of the property. A legal charge is registered against the title to the property to secure the amount of the lifetime mortgage.
Upon completion of a lifetime mortgage, you receive a lump sum or regular income payments. However, unless it is a feature of your preferred product, you are not obligated to make monthly repayments. The lender recoups the amount you borrowed, including interest and fees, from the sale of your home after you pass away or move into long-term care or sheltered accommodation. Some providers permit you to transfer your lifetime mortgage to a new property or acquire a new lifetime mortgage if you purchase a new home.
Your lawyer at Bowsers Solicitors will take the time to fully understand your circumstances and advise accordingly, ensuring that this specialist area is dealt with carefully and that you can be confident that your chosen arrangement is suitable for you.
Transfer of Equity Cambridgeshire
Changing a property’s ownership status by adding or removing one or more people from the register is known as a transfer of equity. Seeking the appropriate legal advice is essential to ensure that the relevant forms and procedures are completed to a high standard, particularly in cases where there is a mortgage or the possibility of a dispute arising regarding the ownership change.
There are several circumstances in which a person might seek to transfer equity, including the following:
- During a divorce or separation whereby assets need to be separated. This will typically be in cases where the property is the most significant asset.
- As a result of a marriage, civil partnership or a couple moving in together where a new person needs to be added to the deed of a property that one partner already owns.
- In cases where a joint owner is being bought out by a joint owner with whom you originally purchased the property.
- To be tax efficient. A person might transfer equity to their children or another family member. However, seeking the appropriate advice surrounding this is essential.
Bowsers Solicitors can carefully guide you through the process, no matter the reason for wanting to transfer the equity or the complexities of your case.
