The Free Money Advice Service has been setup by the government to provide impartial advice on most financial matters but is particularly good on Equity Release. 

Equity Release is a minefield but a necessary minefield! Get it right and older people can raise money on their property - potentially allowing them to afford to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. Get it wrong and they can accumulate an enormous debt and effectively disinherit their children as the finance company claims their home in order to repay the accumulated loan when they die. The link below may help you decide whether this might be a useful route to go down. However just as importantly consider using a financial adviser.
This is a simple AgeUK Equity Release calculator which will help you find out how much an equity release loan would allow you to raise on your house.

“A huge thank you for the amazing service I have received from Tony and SP Financial Management. To say my Mortgage application case was difficult is an understatement – I had various factors that made life difficult for Tony including a non-standard construction property. Tony and the SPFM team went through all of my options in a clear concise manner and helped me make the right decision to achieve my Mortgage goals. Once the plan of action had been decided Tony guided me through each stage of the Mortgage application process and kept me fully informed of all developments. I would highly recommend Tony and can't thank him enough for getting my 2016 off to a great start.” MRS OFFORD, Rochford, Essex “He worked well with my self and wife and offered great options re: life insurance. He is defiantly the person I will go back to in the future, if I need any other financial advice. Thanks to Tony for fitting in with my time schedule and helping me get everything relating to my life insurance done.” MR GEORGIOU, London

He was reassuring when I needed it, attentive, helpful and always available! The process I went through was not an easy one, but at no point did I ever think that Mortgage Chain Ltd were not pulling their weight or were slacking off. The expertise they have and the advice they gave was invaluable and I now have an amazing new forever home because of them! It is without hesitation that I recommend them wholeheartedly!
