Mr and Mrs Harris* wanted to help their family out and still be around to see them enjoy it. Having bought their bungalow 40 years before, unlocking some of the cash from the property with an equity release plan meant they could help their daughter and grandchildren with a financial gift.

“Equity release is something we had considered for many years,” says Mr Harris. “We felt now was a good time to look into it, at a time when money was needed. “We wanted to go to a company that was totally reliable.”

“The adviser we spoke to was a lovely chap. I had a long list of questions I’d prepared – he answered every single one of them and was honest. It was obvious he had our interests at heart. He wasn’t pushy, he didn’t pressure us and he gave us the pitfalls as well as the upsides. I don’t go into things lightly where money is concerned.

With the cash raised and money released, the Harris’ have helped daughter Laura buy a reliable new car, given grandson Steven money to start furnishing his new home and are supporting granddaughter Lucy, an aspiring actor, through university. They have also funded her laser eye surgery, something she’s wanted to get done for a long time.

Now the family are taken care of, the Harris’ clearly have no regrets about the decisions they’ve made.

“Without a doubt I would recommend Key. It’s well worth making that initial enquiry – it won’t cost you a penny and there is certainly no arm-twisting to contend with.” Mr and Mrs Harris, Key customers
