How a specialist equity release adviser can help
Here are just some of the reasons to choose the Saga Equity Release Advice Service:
No obligation to proceed – You’ll never be pressurised into taking out equity release. In fact, 10% of people who speak to our advisers are advised that equity release is not right for them. This is based on customers who booked a first appointment through the Saga Equity Release Advice service between July 2019 and June 2020.
No upfront costs – An advice fee is only payable if you decide to go ahead with equity release. The fee is a competitive £750, but this will be waived if you’re a Saga customer who has signed up to Possibilities.
Two-way process – When you speak to an adviser you will have a thorough discussion about your individual circumstances and your wishes for the future.
Financial review – Your adviser will put together a personal financial report based on the information you provide.
Free state benefit check – A review will be done to ensure you’re receiving everything you’re entitled to. You’ll also be advised if equity release could affect any benefits you currently receive.
Alternatives explored – It’s essential to find the right financial solution for you, so your adviser will help you look at alternative ways to access the funds you need.
Carefully selected providers – If equity release is suitable for you and you wish to proceed, your adviser will recommend a product that complies with Equity Release Council standards.
Equity release is a big step as it will reduce the value of your estate and can affect eligibility for means-tested state benefits.
