We approached a Lifetime Mortgage with a lot of uncertainty, having spent some time looking up reports and analyses, pros and cons and all manner of comment pieces. It seemed a very daunting process.
Finally we contacted John Whyte and we could not have made a better choice.
He talked us through all the legalise and jargon, pointed out all the plusses and minuses and at the same time made sure that he understood exactly our situation and reasons for the mortgage.
There was no hard sell. On the contrary, he encouraged us to look at all the options and made sure we understood them.
He was at all times clear, friendly and helpful.
Thank you John for guiding us successfully through a process which we had initially approached with such trepidation.
We would be happy to recommend his services to anyone considering a lifetime mortgage.
I cannot recommend John Whyte highly enough. I am a 78 year old widow living alone and needing extra money for essential home repairs, etc. John patiently and professionally explained everything about equity release to me and answered every question that I asked.
Everything went through smoothly, every step explained along the way and, when there were slight delays, John stepped in and dealt with them speedily.

I found John through my financial advisor, and am very glad I did.

Eligibility criteria for equity release are very straightforward. You must be a homeowner with a conventional property located in the UK. Your home must be worth at least £70,000 with little or no mortgage left to pay. You (or the youngest homeowner for joint ownership) must be at least 55 years old to qualify.
There are a range of factors affecting the amount of money you are able to release from your home. Clearly, the value of your property is of paramount importance, including any outstanding mortgage that must be repaid first. Other factors to be taken into account include your age, health, medical history, lifestyle and more. The older you or your partner are, the more you may be able to borrow.
