    Congrats to Mr.Lewis on TV yesterday.Espicially for bringing the subject of Equity Release into focus and pointing out some of the inherent consequences that some people dont understand or are not made totally aware of before committing themselves and also their families too before taking out a Lifetime Mortgage.Get a 10 or 15 year forecast on what money you will owe in the future before you sign and look to other alternatives if you can.

    Given the usual short timescale he has, I am surprised anything of real value could be given regarding equity release other than a) use a solicitor and b) use an adviser.

    That is all you need to worry about as the adviser is required to look at all alternatives and cover the risks and the solicitor will cover the risks again.
