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.

Matt Petrie is a friendly, likeable and knowledgable advisor, he helped me secure the best option available and I would recommend him to anyone needing specialist advice

Referring to this website, my husband and myself were very surprised to read the review from Elaine Bagley. We have been clients of this Company for several years. Our previous F.A.sold his Company to JPM on retirement as he was impressed with his dealings with them. We are grateful for this guidance and have, in fact recommended to others as their performance for us in this and other areas has been excellent. Matthew Petrie is in regular contact with us and any request is dealt with promptly or delegated to Stephanie Jones or Rebecca Beddington and all have become a significant part of our lives. this, thankfully is our experience.

Barclays Bank

17 Church Square, Oldbury B69 4DX, UK – 0345 734 5345

Maybe if people weren't so stupid they wouldn't have problems and have to leave bad reviews. Banks perfectly fine, sometimes there's a queue but Google does tell what you times are busiest. It isn't hard to look up. The staff have always been polite. My only problem so far was that one cashier said I couldn't pay money into my mother's account for her when two other cashiers said I could. Bit confusing but nothing to kick up a fuss about.

Usually have to queue.staff helpful and friendly.
