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 Enfield

Sorpen Financial Solutions Ltd

83 Delhi Rd, Enfield EN1 2LY, UK – 07887 500415

Me and my partner were first time buyers and we found Allan. We cannot express how supportive and professional he was, what stood out to us was how he went above and beyond his job title and supported us throughout our purchase of our new home. I would recommend him and the company to anyone. Allan was constantly in contact and would help us with any queries we had about mortgage or anything to do with house, insurances etc. Thank you Allan and Sorpen Financial, you have loyal customers for life, but in Allan hopefully a lifelong friend!

Our mortgage was coming to the end of its 2 year fixed rate and we also needed to borrow some extra money for our ever growing list of house improvements. I sought Allan’s advice as I knew we would need help, as we wanted to borrow a fairly large sum, have a good rate and this was all to be based on 1 salary. Allan was very professional and helpful. He came to visit us to discuss our requirements and the rest of the remortgage was managed via email. Not only did Allan get us the extra borrowing we had requested but he also got us a fantastic rate of 1.28%. Don’t hesitate to call Allan to see if he can get you a better deal. You have nothing to lose by enquiring but a potential small fortune to lose by staying with your existing provider.

Mortgage Brokers

Discount Mortgages Ltd

525E Hertford Rd, Enfield EN3 5UA, UK – 020 3697 6474

Recommended for mortgages for first time buyers and bad credit mortgages

Thanks Lisa for getting my Buy to Let mortgage submitted so quickly. I got my offer within 7 days and the rate was great. You made the whole process painless. I went to my bank first and they wanted me to wait 2 weeks for just an appointment. I look forward to doing further business with yourselves as looking at increasing my portfolio over the next 12 months.

Mortgages & Insurers Solutions

18 The Grangeway, Grange Park, London N21 2HG, UK – 020 8364 3444

I have used Mortgages & Insurers for several mortgage transactions and what keeps me coming back to them is their combination of high quality customer service and excellent product offerings. I have dealt with a number of the team and they are all consistently both helpful and efficient. Quick responses to emails but also very happy to have a longer discussion on the phone to explain a product or explore my specific needs. I will continue to use them in the future and always recommend to family & friends.

I have used Mortgages and Insurers Solutions for two mortgages recently. They lean slightly towards the pricier side compared to other brokers I however they are worth it. The point of using a broker is 'do they save time?' and in this respect they delivered. Danny demonstrated good knowledge of current products and the ability to match those products to our specific circumstances. Andy remained diligent throughout in ensuring that the various parties involved in the transaction remained engaged. Any queries I raised were responded to promptly and the service was friendly.

Honest Finance Limited

Rainbow Business Centre, 10 Lumina Way, Lumina Park, Enfield EN1 1FS, UK – 020 8090 4969

The Team at Honest finance helped secure me a buy to let mortgage at an excellent rate of interest. Being self employed this was no easy task. They were there every step of the way to assist me with the application. They managed to collate all the necessary documents needed in a very short space of time. They even spoke to my accountant at length on numerous occasions to ensure a speedy resolution. This saved time and expense on my part. I also used honest Finance again for a residential mortgage application.Having spent hours researching the internet for mortgage rates and receiving offers from my banks I decided to see if Honest Finance could better the numerous quotations I had already received. They managed to get me a much better rate than i had been quoted and also got me a free valuation and legal fees. Again they helped me every step of the way and ensured I received the best mortgage rate in a short space of time. I would highly recommend Honest Finance to anyone trying to secure a mortgage. All the team are helpful and go over and beyond what you would expect from a standard mortgage broker

Honest Finance has been very helpful and efficient with the process of buying a house for me and my family's dream house. We have been trying to buy for a long time, but have not had any luck. So we tried Honest Finance and finally it has pulled through. Chris Murray, our advisor, was extremely friendly, was very thorough with everything we needed to know, patient with our questions and kept us updated all the time. This made the whole process completely stress free. Definitely one happy family here and would recommend anyone who needs help buying a property.

Mortgage Brokers - Key Questions

How much do mortgage brokers charge?
Typically, a broker will actually be paid around 0.35% of the mortgage loan as commission from your the lender. So, for every £100,000 borrowed, they would receive £700 in commission - if they are on commission. Many will therefore not charge for their advise if they are. However they maybe tied to specific companies and so may not be able to offer the best deal. Start with your bank. They will know you personally and financially - hopefully! They will tell you about their mortgages and you can use them as a base line to compare products found by mortgage brokers around Enfield.

Is it better to get mortgage from bank or broker?
This question will be answered by this initial mortgage research. You may hit it lucky and find that your bank can give you the best deal - but do check with a mortgage broker first.  

How do I find a good mortgage broker?
Don't write off the financial comparison websites. Moneysupermarket is full of good advise on how to find mortgage brokers and may even be able to point you around St Ignatius College that they particularly recommend - although will be on commission themselves!

Are mortgage brokers worth it?
Probably yes and we are not on commission! You are free to the these ones a ring - it could really worth it.


Prudent Mortgage Solutions

758 Great Cambridge Rd, Enfield EN1 3GN, UK – 020 3295 5555

Chris worked very hard and obtained for me some excellent Buy-To Let Mortgages in the last nine months. He found some really good deals with low interest rates from major companies. He is the best mortgage adviser I have ever used.

He made the whole experience seamless. Having no knowledge about the mortgage system he supported and advised me in a professional and caring manner. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Unique Estates

578 Hertford Rd, Enfield EN3 5SU, UK – 020 8804 5050

By far the best real estate and management company by far, After dealing with them a few years ago I moved my portfolio of properties to them, perfect service and they call and email me to keep me up to date.

I have dealt with Unique estates for many years now and I am very happy with the service they provide, they have been amazing at managing my rental properties and I have recommended them to friends and family who have loved both their sales and lettings service. The company director is very down to earth and hands on and the staff have been a pleasure to deal with. I recently purchased another property through them and Maria on sales progression kept me up to date the whole way. By far the best agent I have ever dealt with in over 20 years of property dealings

NatWest Bank

9 The Town, Enfield EN2 6LE, UK – 0345 788 8444

Very friendly staff waiting can be long but it’s a bank. Never had a problem with this bank.

I've used this branch for 35 years and seen it evolve, expand and become more modern. The staff have always been really helpful , even during busy times with a huge queue forming .Today I managed to post the wrong cheques into the self service the same time the bottom of my paper bag fell out along with its contents! .Then wonderful cashier Jade came to the rescue..not only did she calmly and patiently correct my errors and assist me with further banking but proceeded to tape up my bag so it would last my journey! .So a big THANK YOU to Jade for going above and beyond her duty..I only wish there was an email address I could send a similar message to!
