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 East Leake

Chesterton House Financial Planning Ltd

3 Rectory Pl, Loughborough LE11 1UW, UK – 01509 610472

Very professional and efficient service. Definitely recommend

Santorini Financial Planning Ltd

35-37 High St, Barrow upon Soar, Loughborough LE12 8PY, UK – 01509 387027

Matthew is exactly what I wanted from an IFA – knowledgeable, realistic, honest and good value for money. His service is very professional, and I can’t recommend him highly enough – especially considering my previous experiences dealing with other less reputable characters within the Financial Services industry. I genuinely believe he has his clients best interests at heart, so so will have a loyal client in me as a result. Thank-you Matthew, I appreciate everything you do for me.

If you have been put off from seeking financial advice because you think "they are all the same", you haven't met Matt. Not only is he a genuinely lovely man, he really, really knows his stuff!! He really takes the time to get to know his clients and understand them too, so he can help them achieve their goals, whatever they may be. We feel completely comfortable with Matt, trust him implicitly and are delighted with the service he provides. We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Wealth Help

Quorn, Loughborough LE12 8BE, UK – 0116 380 0707

We were having difficulty finding the right mortgage, (buy to let), from the high street banks and at the right rate for us. Someone suggested contacting Mark Brooks a financial planner at Wealth Help. He promptly came round and showed us a huge range of mortgages which were not available out there in the high street. He was very understanding and knowledgeable. When we chose a mortgage from the list, Mark did all the rest. I would like to thank him for all his help and would certainly recommend him.

Wealth Help were great when the time came for me to re-mortgage. I told them what I was looking at and was given a number of options to consider. They were really helpful and saved me time scouring the High Street for the best deal. They regularly reached out to reassure me that everything was in hand and to make sure I was happy with the progress of the re-mortgage. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Helpful friendly and good customer service

Lloyds Bank

37-38 High St, Loughborough LE11 2QG, UK – 0345 300 0000

As an Aussie setting up a new UK with my wife, the staff could not have been more helpful. It wasn't an easy process but the staff made sure we understood everything that was going on. Since that time I've found the online banking (including the app) to be excellent. I would recommend this branch and bank to anyone.

Most of the staff go above and beyond, but some come across so miserable! Great building with loads of room, but always seem to be waiting unnecessarily long.

Barclays Bank

3 Market Pl, Loughborough LE11 3EA, UK – 0345 734 5345

Always helpful staff available to lend a hand in any way they can

Most actions can be done at the cash machines, but for when you need to talk to someone they are very friendly. Unfortunately wait times can get very long, especially when university starts.
