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.

Independent Financial Advisers - IFAs Hillingdon

Affinity Financial Advisors Ltd

High House/Harlington Rd, Uxbridge UB8 3HX, UK – 01895 810134

Really great experience. I'm a little out of touch with current mortgage planning and left feeling all the boxes were ticked. I feel happy to go back when I need a mortgage and am in safe and trusted hands.

Altero Financial Services

Boundary House, Cricket Field Rd, Uxbridge UB8 1QG, UK – 01895 253559

I had a number of investments that had been lying idle for quite a while and decided that I ought to seek out an independent financial adviser to get advice. I contacted Which? Money who suggested that I speak to Susan Tague. I found Susan extremely helpful and after a discussion about my goals/targets and my attitude towards risk, she prepared a report as to what she considered the best way forward. I was very happy with this report and felt quite confident that Susan was the right person to manage my portfolio. This was in 2013, and since then I have been very happy with the progress of my investments and the way that they have been managed.

Altero recommends itself with consistent attention to detail and the ability to draw back and plan larger strategies. Don't fear holding back from talking to them because you think finance management does not meet your circumstances; you judegment is necessarily partial and needs leavening with other opinions, especially in the financial sphere. You will know what you are paying for before you have to!

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 Hillingdon.

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 Andrews CE Junior & Infant School that they particularly recommend - although will be on commission themselves! Click the link below to go the the right part of Moneysupermarket.

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.
