Roundtable to provide key insight into new market opportunity

Today’s Conveyancer and Today’s Wills and Probate are excited to be hosting their first collaborative Roundtable, with a focus on a key opportunity for legal professionals across both sectors.

Due to be held in the 3PB Barristers Chambers of Birmingham’s prestigious Colmore Building, the event is set to provide attendees with a unique chance to discuss important issues and key challenges, as well as hear from expert speakers to help refresh and develop industry knowledge.

For this Roundtable, the focus will be on a market which has shown significant growth over recent years, as well a potential opportunity for law firms which has not yet been fully tapped into.

Equity release now attracts double the amount of customers it did in 2013, and with almost three-quarters of equity held by those over 50, the possible benefits for legal professionals to extend their offering to equity release advice have never been more prominent.

Beyond lifetime lending seeing rapid growth over the past year, many equity release products have specialist aspects which require expert advice – both conveyancing and Wills and Probate related alike. As such, with the range of products on offer to consumers on an upward trajectory, more and more legal professionals are considering providing advice to their clients.

Setting out to help our attendees gain a clearer understanding of what this may involve, we are thrilled to be welcoming Chair of the Equity Release Council, David Burrowes to next month’s Roundtable.

Alongside the opportunity to discuss key issues with peers, this expert appearance will enable attendees to gain a real insight into the equity release market and how to establish a presence in this evolving area of law.

After the day, a full write-up will be published on both Today’s Conveyancer and Today’s Wills and Probate.
