Equity Release

Equity Release and Lifetime Mortgages are our specialist subject. Richard Carter, Abdul Mutallib and Jane Williams are partners of Martin Tolhurst and deal specifically with equity release and lifetime mortgage schemes for clients over 55 years of age. They will offer an efficient, effective and prompt service.


Martin Tolhurst as a firm acts on behalf of many clients every year on a variety of equity release and lifetime mortgage schemes with all of the major lenders and providers. We work with the lenders, their separately appointed solicitors (where applicable) and your financial adviser to ensure that you are fully informed, well advised, and can use our experience to deal with any situations that arise.


You will be appointed one of the four partners to deal personally with your matter - Richard and Abdul are based at our Ashford office, Jane is based at our Longfield office and Kevin is based at our Medway office. The partner dealing with your matter will offer you personal and professional advice and will personally attend to your file and deal with your matter throughout. You will not be passed to an anonymous team to deal with your important case.


Our approach to equity release is to ensure that we offer you an efficient and effective service that is flexible. We can arrange to see you at our offices or, if more convenient, at your home for the purposes of signing the key legal documents. We can offer out-of-hours appointments where necessary at any of our locations.


At the outset of your transaction we will give you a clear, fixed cost quotation for all the legal costs and expenses you will incur. It is unlikely that this will alter but if matters are unexpectedly complex, we will tell you immediately of any additional or unexpected costs before carrying out further work.

Don't just take our word for it...

“We started our journey with Martin Tolhurst when we found our dream home. little did we realise that were about to buy a house during a pandemic! Over what was an anxious time, Richard and his team kept us calm and informed and was very happy to relay the good news that we had crossed the finish line and exchanged contracts. Richard's colleague, Heidi, made the journey to our house to hand-deliver documents rather than let us have to wait for the slow postal system that had been affected by coronavirus. We are really grateful to Martin Tolhurst for all their support and help.”
