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.

Astute Money Financial Planning

Plymouth Science Park, 1 Davy Road, Plymouth PL6 8BX, UK – 0800 122 3101

I found Darren Fisher when looking for advice on taking my pensions post retirement. Darren explained the various options available in easy to understand terms enabling me to make the right choice for me. I am extremely happy with the service provided and the outcome and would not hesitate to use him again if the need arises

Darren has helped me with my finances for a number of of years and has provided reliable, helpful and appropriate advice every time. His wide knowledge and expert understanding of all the issues involved in financial planning mean I can safely depend on his guidance and know that I am in safe hands. He is easy to talk to, explains everything clearly and has a real empathy with clients. I cannot recommend him highly enough - 10 stars really! Chris George, the mortgage adviser, has been an amazing support to my daughter as she has struggled to cope with changes to the deeds of her property and set up a new mortgage. At times it seemed as if everything that could go wrong did! But Chris patiently and professionally guided her through each step, spending much more time and effort than normally expected for this kind of transaction and saw her through to a successful conclusion. No-one could have done more and the whole family are extremely grateful. He must be the best there is!

Cannot praise them enough..great students and supervision. Recommend their services

I hate dentists appointments. Thus why I haven't been to a dentist in over ten years, but I found the Peninsular dental school excellent. I required root canal work and found it relatively painless, I even found that at some points I was falling asleep, the work was that painless. The students are professional, hard working and have a good eye for detail. Yes the treatment takes longer than a normal dentist, but if you can get the time to be treated by them, you wont be disappointed. If I had gone to a normal NHS dentist, they would have removed my tooth, but here, they need the experience, so took time to save my tooth. Glad they did. I'll be back for treatment this term. They treat people over the school and university term from September to around May time, so if you need treatment, get on the waiting list and hopefully the will treat you at the beginning of the new term, plus of course the big bonus is that if you cant afford treatment, they do it for free. A great help if your unemployed or on a low income. Thank you to you all there for helping me.

We recently had to remortgage and extend our loan to pay off our HTB equity loan. Amy was quick and thorough and found us a much cheaper deal than we're on at the moment. She was diligent and fast, and overall fantastic. I couldn't recommend her enough.
