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.

Thanks Mark and Andy - Chase Financial took time to sit and understand my objectives and goals for my family before recommending a plan that could work for me and my family. I felt they had a good understanding of my situation and provided great advice based upon it.

Never had any problem here.Quick to process anything.Rarely wait more than 2mins to see cashier.Only waited longer because of lots of people in queue,even then,didn't have to wait long.


Yorkshire Bank

5 Northgate St, Gloucester GL1 2AH, UK – 0800 456 1247

Was very pleasantly surprised that they allowed dogs in......I tied my little dog outside and was told by a lovely cashier lady that she didn't want her to be stolen or frightened so if I wanted to I was welcome to go and get her! Can you imagine barclays or TSB doing that????


NatWest Bank

4, St Oswalds Rd, Gloucester GL1 2SR, UK – 0845 301 9754

Queued to be expected, but staff member is asking what we need to do to see if she can help. Has drop box for business, interview room, cash in and out machines. Very friendly staff.

Very handy location which saves walking up town every time you need to use a branch. Unfortunately every local business seems to have cottoned on to this so the queue is always long and very rarely are all 3 counters open. If businesses depositing large sums of cash had their own separate counter, banking for everyone else would move much more freely.

Barclays Bank

175 Bristol Rd, Gloucester GL1 5TG, UK – 0345 734 5345

It's one of the few branches left open outside of the city centre, I wonder how long it'll last....

Good service friendly staff with great attitude

Mortgage Brokers

The Mortgage Brain

Park House, Montpellier, Gloucester GL1 1LF, UK – 0333 340 8888

Ian was brilliant! Our mortgage offer was so quick and Ian got us a great deal and would always come back to us with any queries on the same day. In fact all the Mortgage Brain team we dealt with were fantastic. We would highly recommend. Thank you.

Katie was brilliant! Our mortgage was a complex case but she took the time to explain all the options before we even engaged her to act on our behalf. She got us a great deal and most the time came back to us with answer the same day or within 24 hours. Once we engaged the Mortgage Brain the admin staff kicked into gear, who ever we spoke to seemed to be knowledgable and helpful. They made a stressful process quite berable in the end. I've had several mortgage brokers, but was very impressed with the way we were treated through out. Would recommend

Quayside Wealth Management

Huge thanks to Alex Kell of Quayside Wealth Management. Just wish I'd contacted him before I joined the scary world of the self-employed last July. I will actually be able to sleep tonight knowing I have a solid financial plan in place now. Alex you have no idea how much I appreciate your (frank!) knowledgeable approach, thank you. I will confidently refer your services.

Alex has been advising me and my husband about our personal finances with a view to finding out when we can afford to slow down a bit and cut back on a busy working life. Alex provides proactive and relevant advice and helps you to follow this advice through with a range of high quality products to suit your particular circumstances. Very knowledgeable and clearly loves his job! No hesitation in recommending him.

Went there today with my husband. I can not believe the fantastic customer service we had either by the jolly lady at the reception or the lady who inside who managed to serve us even though we did not make an appointment to open a new acc. All went nice and smooth. Best customer service ever.

Wonderful staff who do their best to assist the many customers. I agree .. Too many machines that change too frequent and difficult for the elderly to keep abreast with the times. One star lost for the length of time one has to wait for a consultant.
