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.

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 Plymouth.

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 Plymouth Central 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.


Brunel Mortgage and Insurance Services

97 Mutley Plain, Plymouth PL4 6JJ, UK – 01752 200002

Excellent service and help. I telephoned to obtain a landlord quote for building and contents insurance. Chris was extremely helpful. He provided details of what would be covered in the policy and the excesses that would apply. He also very willingly contacted an insurer several times to check and ensure points that I needed to have included in my policy would be fully covered. My current insurance for the next year had increased by £150 and Chris found an insurer that was only £50 more expensive – a saving of £100. I would definitely recommend contacting Chris at Brunel Mortgages for an insurance quote. He may also be able to save you money.

Great service from Chris and his team, could not have asked for more! What was rather a stressful remortgage for us was made a lot easier with the guidance and support from all at Brunel. Will most certainly be calling on Chris in the future. Thank you all.
