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.

As a first time buyer, I used the services of Manchester Mortgages after they were highly recommended by a friend who had also used their services. I dealt with Alan all the way through, who sourced the market to find the best mortgage approval for me. I found Alan to be very helpful, attentive and honest with his advice. As a first time buyer, it was reassuring to have an advisor on hand to answer any questions or concerns I had. I would definitely use the services of Manchester Mortgages again in the future and have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family.

Had a great service throughout from Alan. He was very attentive to detail and I would have no problem recommending his service to others looking for a mortgage, hassle free.

This was our first experience of buying a home and, after a positive referral, we got in touch with Manchester Mortgages. They responded swiftly to our emails and were very accommodating to our working hours. We met several times with their associate, Andy, who was very informative and very knowledgeable on all matters. He advised us and helped us to make sensible decisions that reflected our customer needs. Quotes were reasonable and covered a range of options from a variety of well-researched vendors. When it was time to pursue with searches, they recommended a conveyancing solicitor who was just as efficient and astute. Overall we were very impressed with the customer care and speed of service and will definitly be using them again - when we come to move, later down the line.

Alan at Manchester Mortgages has provided an excellent service. He has been professional and attentive during my process of becoming a first time buyer and has helped to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. Since initial contact Alan has gone above and beyond which I am very grateful for. Alan is very friendly and knowledgeable and he has been available to answer any queries i’ve had and took his time to explain to ensure I fully understood all information. Additionally, he helped me to find the most appropriate, cost effective insurances to ensure my mortgage is protected. I fully recommend Manchester Mortgages. They're very professional and trustworthy. Thank you Alan for all your help and advice. I will definitely be recommending you to my family and friends.

I cannot rate these guys highly enough! They really went the extra mile to sell my house for me. They definitely did more work than my solicitors! Special mentions to Amy, Ryan and Kim who worked tirelessly to push the sale thorough. Kim (manager) was amazing from start to finish. Thanks guys!

Thank you so much to all the staff at Reeds Rains Didsbury. They brought a professionalism and energy to the sale that I couldn't find elsewhere and they delivered. First class.

Lisa and Scarlett were instrumental in helping us sell our home. They both kept in regular contact with us, and carried out viewings with many potential buyers. Through their support, a buyer was identified and we have now successfully sold our house. Many thanks to you both, we couldn't have done it without you! :-)

Recently sold a property in Parrs wood and got fantastic support initially from Scarlett and then substantially from Lisa. We effectively sold twice as the first fell through due to chain issues at my end. Both times the support was excellent including attending the viewing days from which we got all the offers. I would totally recommend them for any future dealings as they break the mould in terms of typical views of estate agents. Thanks ladies.
