If you are considering releasing equity on your home to boost your income or reinvest the capital, there are several options on the market. However, you must seek independent legal advice to ensure you fully understand what this involves and that your legal rights and assets are protected. We can also advise on the tax and property consequences to protect your interests if you gift your home to children or other family members. Our team can also help clients who need to move out of their existing home into sheltered accommodation or residential care and need advice on the types of accommodation and the minimising of fees.
Our experienced elderly and vulnerable client team at Bookers & Bolton have the knowledge and expertise to assist you through challenging times.
