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.

Raymond James Investment Services

72 King St, Maidstone ME14 1BL, UK – 01622 691600

The team at Raymond James were really helpful, they answered all my questions and made my whole experience with wealth management easy. They told me everything I needed to know and made be feel comfortable. I've recommended them to friends and will continue to recommend them in the future.

I contacted Raymond James Weald of Kent branch back in 2013 after being recommended them by a friend who had a good experience with them a few years ago. My main reason for contacting the Maidstone office was to find out more about how I could maximise the income I receive from my investment and improve my return on investment. Wealth management for me is very important and I wanted to ensure that everything I was already doing was sufficient and effective. The advice I received from the Maidstone team was impeccable and I couldn't fault it. Their friendly approach and regular communication made it easy for me to gain trust in who I was talking to about my finances. I would definitely recommend Raymond James Weald of Kent to a friend after the pleasing experience I had.

Brilliant staff.

Good open plan and easy to navigate areas. Staff efficient and helpful, particuarly when using the new cashier machines (these seem to dislike me, im sure they sense fear!). The personal account advisor i met could not have been more helpful, professional, friendly and was so understanding of my dexterity/mobility issues. She even took the time to call me a few days later to check everything was up and running ok. Its a busy popular bank but there are now plenty of chairs if you need to sit and wait.

Mortgage Brokers

Circle Mortgages

Woodside Cottages, Willington St, Maidstone ME15 8EB, UK – 07977 208019

Paul at circle mortgages was recommended to us by a friend after we had trouble with 2 brokers not being able to secure us a mortgage. I found Paul to be very conscientious and pragmatic in his approach, he is also very easy to get along with in conversation. I firmly believe that without Paul's help, my wife and i would still be trying to secure our first home but instead the keys are in hand and we are ready to start family life together. His fee is extremely reasonable and he more than pays for himself imo with the deals he can secure. Thanks Paul!
