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.

Also, the new Branch is really nice, neat and posh! Keep up the Good work!

Brilliant branch. Good people. Avoid Saturdays because on the day it is generally crowded by Tata employees of Indian origin, who come with big head and huge hygiene issues.

I waited 2 minutes to see somebody at 1pm on a Saturday (I had expected a long queue), and the lady who helped me was incredibly helpful. I had 3 problems when I went in, and I had none when I came out 15 minutes later. Thanks for the good service!

The most knowledgeable and helpful bank staff I came across in Coventry. We went to Barclays and twice to Santander to open an account for my son who's an international student at Coventry University and both Banks have young clueless staff that wasted our time and had to refer most questions to supervisors, and to open an account the earliest appointment was 2 weeks out. We went to HSBC and sorted everything out the same day.

Nationwide

62-64 Broadgate, Coventry CV1 1NF, UK – 0800 554 0531

A group called Money Zoo took money without my sons permission. Went to Nationwide with info from MSE showing its a fraud group and they responded that my son must of applied for a loan elsewhere that sold the details on then and said tough. This put my son in overdraft and they have continued to charge him. In essence myu sons account was accessed illegally by a company that doesn't exist and Nationwide keep charging him for the privillidge

Mortgage Brokers

Keys Mortgages

24 Skipworth Rd, Coventry CV3 2XA, UK – 024 7645 5445

Everyone talks about how stressful it can be to buy their own home - but with Keys it just seemed to happen and I didn't even really need to think about it - at least it certainly felt that way. They took so much of the worry and stress out of the whole process. The company offers an outstanding service, and it helps that they have lovely staff who are incredibly supportive. I'm very grateful to them, and I will go nowhere else for my mortgage advice in the future. I cannot recommend Keys enough.

My first time using keys was back in 2010. At the time my wife and I were first time buyers on a relatively low income and we’re struggling to get onto the property ladder due to large deposits required. Due to this we had to purchase our first house as shared ownership. This is where I was introduced to Lisa at Keys through an estate agent. Lisa is clearly an industry professional, with a huge amount of knowledge and in my opinion is simply the best person/company I’ve dealt with regarding properties. Not only did Lisa get us a mortgage approved, she also found us phenomenal deals on our insurances policies (which we still have to this day) Without keys, their contacts, and their amazing support we wouldn’t have gotten on the property ladder when we were both 22. Skipping forward 5 years, we decided it was time to purchase the remaining 50% of our property and having looked into it, all banks wanted another 10% deposit of the remaining 50% of the house. I rang Keys to discuss our options and this is where Lisa introduced me to Cheryl. Cheryl was extremely reliable and clearly passionate about her work and took the time to really understand our needs. Within the space of a few weeks Cheryl and Keys managed to do what knowone else could and that was to find us a mortgage for all of the property paying NO DEPOSIT at all on the remaining 50%!! Absolutely incredible. Finally in the last 2 weeks (May 2018) I contact Keys again to discuss my options of buying a new home and this is where I was introduced to Amy. Talking with Amy was like talking to Lisa and Cheryl. Switched on, genuine and passionate and wanted to get you the best possible deal. (Which she did) We are now in a position where we are moving to a big new build detached dream family home and this wouldn’t have been possible without this company. People are very quick to let people know when service is bad, but rarely do we recognise when it beyond the expected. I have and will continue to recommend this company to anyone, and when training my team at work they are the best example I have of customer satisfaction/service and going beyond what’s expected. Thanks to all the team at Keys for what you have been able to do for us. You will never know how much we appreciate it. The Linford’s

1st Call 4 Mortgages (UK) Ltd

58 Richmond St, Coventry CV2 4JB, UK – 0330 606 2683

My mortgage broker (Simon Roberts) from 1st Call 4 Mortgages helped me to obtain a mortgage recently. As a first time buyer and not having a high income it was not easy trying to get a mortgage. However, Simon made this possible for me, and my dream of owning my place became a reality thanks to him. I had been with previous brokers before Simon, who were not as half as good. Simon can search whole of market and is always a phone call away for when you need him. He is a fully qualified broker with a wealth of experience and expert advice. I did not have to pay any fee, as Simon claimed his fee from the lender. This allowed me to put more money aside for my deposit. Simon has been a pleasure to deal with and I would certainley use his services again in the future.

Up Financial

6 Orchard Ct, Coventry CV3 2TQ, UK – 024 7771 0781

Working with Tom and Stella is always a delight. They arranged our Mortgage when we first bought the house and did it again for our re-mortgage recently. Tom got us the best deal available out there and ensured everything went smoothly and also recommended a solicitor nearby. Stella kept on top of the paperwork and kept us informed throughout the whole mortgage process. Would definitely recommend their service!

UP financial, You are one of the most professional people I have ever come across! Many thanks to Tom Garvie who was extremely helpful throughout this very bumpy and long journey! Friendly and professional right from the start! You made it a lot easier for me Tom! Already started recommending you to friends. Keep up the good work guys! Thank you once again for the great help!
