Tim Cornish

Equity Release Consultant

Tim Cornish provides Brooks & Partners with a consultancy service specialising in Equity Release.

Tim graduated from the London School of Economics with an honours degree in economics, and later obtained an MBA from Bradford University. His early career was spent in the newly developing Information Technology sector of industry, in various marketing and business development roles.  In the early ‘80’s Tim then relocated overseas providing support services in various roles

Later and as a result of the “de-regulation” of legal services, Tim moved to working with law firms concentrating on helping them cope with the new challenges. Over the course of twenty-five or so years he provided his services in this regard to over seventy firms nationwide. Several clients retained his services on a regular basis over periods of years.

During his time as a consultant Tim became familiar with many aspects of the legal services provided by his clients. In particular he became interested in the aspects of law required by their more elderly clients – for example, Wills, Living Wills, Powers of Attorney, Deputyship, Residential Care, Equity Release, etc. He therefore decided to write a book covering these matters, in lay as opposed to legal terms. The book, titled LifeHolder, was first published in 2013 and updated and reprinted in 2019. It was also used, under licence, in varying formats, directly by some of his solicitor clients in their own marketing activities.

Now, Tim is working as a consultant specialising in Equity Release offering his service to any Brooks & Partners clients who are interested in a no-obligation chat to discuss how it works.
