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.

TSB Bank

3 Arundel St, Portsmouth PO1 1NB, UK – 023 9281 9351

The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly.

Staff very friendly and helpful at Portsmouth branch, I have banked there for two years. Competitively priced in-built overdraft facility with Classic Plus account 5% (tax free) interest on first £2000 credit balance and up to £5 cashback per month on contactless visa debit card transactions until December 2016 (payable one month in arrears). As well as staff being helpful and having good product knowledge, they are chatty and enjoy a good joke with customers. Best financial institution I have ever banked with. I would recommend my branch (and TSB in general) to anyone.

Austin & Wyatt

5 Clarendon Rd, Portsmouth, Southsea PO5 2DU, UK – 023 8181 0223

Hi Dan, Many thanks, the Inventory is certainly thorough as you said. We have been very satisfied in the process for letting our flat through Austin Wyatt. The advertising was effective delivering a good range of candidates. It was easy to discuss the candidate options and following identification of the preferred candidate the legal, inventory, management and payment processes have all come into play efficiently. Many thanks, K.

Really Professional, went that extra mile! I was first time landlord and I'd been looking to invest in Portsmouth for a while, and friend of mine (an already successful landlord recommend Austin and Wyatt). I gave them a call and they invited me in the same day for a chat. The guys i spoke to were really helpful and very patient with me, they explained the hole process from start to finish and even had some helpful tips on the local market to help me decided where to invest. They outlined the great advantages to lettings but didnt skip over all the pitfalls which put my mind at ease that they really new what they were talking about. Over the next month of searching for property they kept in contact with me to see how i was getting on, i let them know when i'd put an offer on the property i'd decided on, As soon as completed the guys from Austin & Wyatt went out the same day to begin marketing the property. It was on the web the next day and they had viewings lined up that afternoon! They managed to achieved the full asking price and got my tenant moved last week! Start to finish there was great communication throughout and they now manage the property for me which frees me up to look for my next investment!

Doors were firmly closed at 5.01 .... ok closing time was 5pm. But expected it to be open until at least 5.30 or 6 midweek for those working. Will change rating if and when I use them again

It's just a bank
