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.

Very happy with Castlefield's helpful financial advice.

Barchester Green were personally recommended to my wife many years ago when she was looking to set up a pension. Some years later, when we had an amount of money to invest we spoke to them again. The advice that they have given us has been excellent. Now into the third year and our investments continue to do very well, providing us with the sense of security that we were looking for as we get older.

I found Akwasi to be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. With my limited knowledge of the Financial Markets, he made me feel completely at ease and explained my investment options in a clear & concise way. I would definitely recommend Sterling & Law.

I would like say a big thank you for all your help with my mortgages and insurances. You have helped me on two occasions to arrange my mortgages, your advice and professionalism on both occasions had been very professional and admirable. I would highly recommend your services to others and hope to work you again in the future.

The team at Vista Finance, especially Pavlos, have been a mentor to me, not only has he advised me during rough times but has successfully arranged number of mortgages for me and my family over the years.

Mortgage Brokers - Key Questions

How much do mortgage brokers charge?
Typically, a broker will actually be paid around 0.35% of the mortgage loan as commission from your the lender. So, for every £100,000 borrowed, they would receive £700 in commission - if they are on commission. Many will therefore not charge for their advise if they are. However they maybe tied to specific companies and so may not be able to offer the best deal. Start with your bank. They will know you personally and financially - hopefully! They will tell you about their mortgages and you can use them as a base line to compare products found by mortgage brokers around Lambeth.

Is it better to get mortgage from bank or broker?
This question will be answered by this initial mortgage research. You may hit it lucky and find that your bank can give you the best deal - but do check with a mortgage broker first.  

How do I find a good mortgage broker?
Don't write off the financial comparison websites. Moneysupermarket is full of good advise on how to find mortgage brokers and may even be able to point you around St Lukes West Norwood CE Primary School that they particularly recommend - although will be on commission themselves!

Are mortgage brokers worth it?
Probably yes and we are not on commission! You are free to the these ones a ring - it could really worth it.

BlueWing Financials

Contacts this exemplary are hard to find and how lucky I was to have met Lilla in 2013. She helped me with my first mortgage in 2013 and again to remortgage in 2018. I have referred her to friends with complete confidence. She's the consummate pro, a true expert in her field, extremely helpful and a true delight to work with, always injecting humour and brightness into your day.

Had a great experience with working with Lilla, she helped me with getting two mortgages approved and was really helpful in answering all questions and providing inside information on different mortgage products!
