Hello, I’m John Whyte, Independent Mortgage Broker, Specialist Equity Release Broker and Will Writer in Sussex covering the whole of the UK.
I am an independent mortgage broker with 25+ years’ experience in the financial services industry, specialising in residential mortgages and equity release plans. Using my unparalleled expertise in this complex sector, I can help you find the most competitive mortgage deals and later life mortgage facilities from all lenders.
A property asset may well be your largest ever investment but obtaining finance for a flat or house purchase, or releasing equity from your existing family home in later life, can be a complicated process that’s hard to navigate on your own. The good news is that there’s a wealth of choice out there and I can give you my personal attention and provide the expert help to guide you through the maze and find a financial solution that is right for you.
We all want to ensure that we pass on our property and other wealth to our loved ones when the time comes, which is why it is so important to write a Will. Sadly, putting it off can result in avoidable tax on death and additional hardship for family members. As a Will Writer, I can work with you and draft your Will to ensure your wishes are conveyed legally and clearly, while minimising your tax exposure.
Right from the start John displayed a calm, efficient knowledgable persona and helped guide us through the field. Any questions asked were always dealt with quickly and accurately and made for a pain free process. Thank you John.
We were referred to John through a family member. We found him very helpful and very patient in explaining everything to us. There were a couple of hiccups along the way but John dealt with them as quickly as possible and put our minds at rest. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering Equity Release.
Very professional and pleasant to deal with. John took great care to make sure we got the best deal and even nudged our solicitor along to ensure we didn’t miss our deadline before the rate went up. Highly recommended
Throughout a number of financial arrangements, John has taken us through the minefield of the necessary steps with clear guidance and aplomb. We do recommend his professionalism very highly.

I first saw John in 2019, at that time we agreed that equity release was not for me, however after the covid pandemic my situation changed and I contacted him again, John takes great care to make sure everything is explained fully, I am very pleased with the service provided and confident with my choice.
John was brilliant during all phases of our equity release process. Clear, supportive and above all : quick to react to all our various Queries.
Always a pleasure working with John informative trustworthy patient I don’t think I could trust anybody else !
From the very first meeting I knew that John would be on my team. He is thoroughly professional but with a light and approachable touch. I would recommend this man highly for his knowledge and expertise. He found us a lifetime mortgage deal when others had turned us away. I’ve already recommended him to my sister. Thank you, John, for all your hard work.
Equity release is a way to unlock the capital tied up in your home in one cash lump sum or in several smaller amounts, or as a combination of both. You can only get equity release if you own your home and are over the aged of 55.
An equity release broker is a completely independent intermediary for clients seeking to release equity from their property. An equity release broker offers market intelligence and acts as an agent for the customer, providing personalised advice. Equity release brokers make their money by charging a fee or commission for tailored equity release solutions.
There are costs involved with equity release. These are the fees for independent financial advice, the mortgage lenders charge and the property valuation or survey fee required to get a current market value of your property.
There is also the interest accumulated through lifetime mortgage plans, but this isn’t an immediate cost – it is rolled-up until the end of the loan (when you die), at which point it is payable by your estate.
