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.

Independent Financial Advisers - IFAs Southampton

Threshold Financial Services Limited

1 & 2 The Brookside Centre, Auckland Road, Southampton SO15 0SD, UK – 0330 024 9115

Jamie and Matt did incredible job. I've tried elswhere and been turned down. But the sales agent asked me to try with them. Great communication from a first day, fully supportive, and the "can do" attitude. It took a some time, but just received my mortgage offer, and on really good terms. I will definitely recomend you guys to anyone. Thank you very much.

What can I say, if you need a mortgage they go through threshold. They helped me so much and kept my nerves steady and my fears at bay. 4 odd months later I am writing this from my first ever home and it's all thanks to them.

Choice Financial Solutions

17-18 The Avenue, Southampton SO17 1XF, UK – 0800 612 8099

Great service provided from this company. Ben helped us remortgage our house, found us a good deal and then arranged all stages of the process for us ensuring a smooth and stressless experience. I have remortgaged quite a few times with various financial advisers, but this has by far been the simplest and most straightforward service yet. I particularly like the online tools that Ben sent me links to which made sharing information and documents really easy. Communication was excellent with quick replies and action taken. I would definitely recommend Choice Financial Solutions and will myself be using them again. Thanks for all your help!

Absolutely amazing. Even intervened when the solicitor and lender could not agree with each other and sorted everything out for me on the day. Could not ask for better or more personal service. Will absolutely use again and again. Dan (Salisbury)

NatWest Bank

1 Romsey Rd, Southampton SO16 4GT, UK – 0845 788 8444

Cue was outside the door this morning but the staff were very friendly. Unfortunately not very helpful though with the online banking issues.

What I used to like was being able to talk and deal with an assistant ,now it's fully automatated,and I hate it I'm considering changing banks,been with this branch for over 30 yrs

Barclays Bank

1a, 106 Burgess Rd, Southampton SO17 1TW, UK – 0345 734 5345

Supportive staff, its annoying that it is difficult to see someone privately as can only do on certain days

Friendly barclays branch but often understaffed as only 2 people work here at once

Barclays Bank

425-427, Shirley Rd, Southampton SO15 3TH, UK – 0345 734 5345

Easy free parking out back, friendly staff, normally not much of a queue for the machines.


Lloyds Bank

77-79 Shirley High St, Southampton SO15 3TX, UK – 0345 300 0000

A great branch of he bank with even over helpful staff. I am always served quickly.

6-7, gordon buildings, Shirley High St, Southampton SO15 3LS, UK – 023 8053 0608

not the fastest at serving customers

Handelsbanken Southampton

3 Carlton Cres, Southampton SO15 2EY, UK – 023 8063 5454

Excellent bank and company to deal with. Have mortgages with them and would not hesitate to recommend.

Handelsbanken is a refreshing approach to banking, having been with Coutts previously I found them rather "stuffy" This experience has been quite the opposite the team are interested in forming a relationship that works with and around your business. Old fashioned banking with a modern open approach.

Mortgage Brokers

The Mortgage Hut - Southampton

14 College Pl, Southampton SO15 2FE, UK – 023 8023 5555

I have used The Mortgage Hut twice now and both times have received excellent service from my advisor. Very helpful and informative throughout the whole process. I will be using them again definitely. Thank you ALL at The Mortgage Hut.

Great service, great solutions and couldn't have been happier with the mortgage that we obtained. We have used them 3 times previously and would continue to recommend them to others. Particular thanks to Damien and Frank for all of their help.

Power Mortgages Ltd

3, Surety House Redbridge, Old Redbridge Rd, Southampton SO15 0NE, UK – 023 8063 0868

Leanne is exceptional. You would be lucky if she handles your case.


Police Mortgages

14 College Pl, Southampton SO15 2FE, UK – 0300 303 2760

We went to the calamity that is called Police Mutual originally but it seems they ran out of crayons for the day and were about as effective as a Fart in a hurricane. Frankly I don't think they are anything more than a man in a bedroom these days. Many at work had a similar experience and had all said good things about Police Mortgages so I thought why not give them a call too. Well frankly Police Mortgages were nothing but 100% amazing. Our advisor Jack sorted everything quickly and professionally, we had a few set backs during the process due to "banker's" however this did not throw Jack who sorted these issues and was even replying to emails at 2300!! Recommend Police Mortgages to all who want a professional and customer focused service. 5* all the way.


Fresh Solutions

Empress Rd, Southampton SO14 0JY, UK – 023 8063 7223

I was recommended Mike at Fresh Solutions by a friend who had been delighted by the service received - I'm so glad to have made that call! As a first time buyer, it was a daunting prospect to face BUT with Mike's unwavering support and guidance the whole process was easy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great service and great team. I cannot recommend Mike from Fresh Solutions highly enough!


19A London Rd, Southampton SO15 2AE, UK – 023 8044 3331

I couldn’t recommend enough. As first time house buyers, Alex and his team were absolutely fantastic at explaining everything to us. Alex was always contactable and would make regular phone contact. Emails were responded to promptly. Great Servoce. Great team.

All the team at AT Mortgages were excellent. Their customer care was second to none - really couldn't be happier and I would recommend them to everyone.

Umbrella Financial Services

7 London Rd, Southampton SO15 2AE, UK – 023 8178 0484

Excellent service. Very professional and easy to deal with. Would definitely recommend to all.
