Legal & General Home Finance has launched four additional CII-led equity release workshops for mortgage brokers to support those interested in taking the Level 3 Certificate in Equity Release.

There’s a workshop on 20 March 2019 in Solihull, Thursday 4 April 2019 in London, Thursday, 16 May 2019 in Cardiff, Thursday, 6 June 2019 in Barnsley and Thursday, 11 July 2019 in Hove. Registrations are open.

Marie Catch, head of mortgage broker sales, Legal & General Home Finance, said: “The response we’ve received from intermediaries after we announced our new equity release workshops earlier this year has been fantastic.

“It’s a clear indication that they recognise the opportunities of the later life lending sector and the important role property wealth is starting to play in their clients’ retirement plans.

“As part of our strategy and commitment to supporting mortgage brokers who are interested in later life lending, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be offering even more of our CII-led equity release workshops.

“Borrowing in retirement is becoming more popular amongst over-55s. To continue growing the later life lending market and meeting the needs of homeowners, we need to get more mortgage brokers ‘on board’ and including property wealth as part of everyday retirement planning.”

The workshops aim to help mortgage brokers understand the principles of equity release, different schemes on offer in the market, the risks involved to consumers and the suitability of different product types according to a client’s circumstances.

Advisers will also be given an overview of the Level 3 Certificate syllabus, as well as guidance for the exam.
