Equity Release Advice Manchester

We are Independent Financial Advisers and a group of solicitors in Greater Manchester who have created this network to provide independent advice on arranging Equity Release products and the associated legal work. Although our group of Solicitors is based in Tameside, we can provide face to face Equity Release advice to anyone in the Greater Manchester area, Stockport, Glossop, Bolton, Oldham or the North West. We can also provide advice to people who reside outside these areas but this will generally be telepehone based.

Equity Release is a way for homeowners aged 55 and over to release money from their house to provide you with a tax free lump sum or a regular income and you won't need to make any monthly repayments. So whether you need money to help with the bills, paying off debts, helping your family, holidays or home improvements Equity Release could be the solution.

Due to the complex nature of Equity Release schemes and the number of products available, the first step is to find an Independent Financial Adviser who can advise you if Equity Release schemes are appropriate for your circumstances and then advise you on the Equity Release scheme that is most suitable. The second part of the Equity Release process requires the services of a solicitor to ensure all the legal aspects of the Equity Release transaction are carried out correctly and that you fully understand your actions.

Harrison Townend Financial Services are independent financial advisers which are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority to give independent financial advice on equity release products. Harrison Townend Financial Services have been working closely with solicitors and their clients to provide quality unbiased advice.

Whilst any financial advice on Equity Release schemes will be provided by the Harrison Townend Financial Services, the legal advice on the Equity Release process can be provided by one of the other practices who are independent of the financial advice.
