Caesar & Howie have been invited to join the Equity Release Solicitors Alliance (ERSA) which is a group of specialist legal firms involved in equity release. The aims of ERSA are to improve the knowledge and understanding of equity release within the market place and to provide impartial specialist legal advice to homeowners considering taking out Equity Release plans. Equity Release Partner Carmen MacIver comments “we were delighted to receive the invitation to join ERSA – effectively that organisation provides a Kite Mark for quality of service in this particular area of work. That’s what we aim to do for our Equity Release clients – give a top quality fast service which is impartial and expert. To be the first firm in Scotland to be asked to join up is pretty special too”. Like other ERSA members Caesar & Howie have invested significantly in building up the firm’s capability in Equity Release. “We have been working on our quality of service for nearly three years now ”states Managing Partner David Borrowman“ and this involves creating top quality computer systems which enable us to process work quickly – as well as ensuring staff are well trained and are kept up to date with all developments in Equity Release. This is a growth area and we are glad we have committed resources to it. But it is an enjoyable sector to work in also – releasing money from their house makes life very much happier for many clients and it is satisfying to be working for them in the Equity Release process”.
