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 Ayr

Lang Financial

1 Wellington Square, Ayr KA7 1DJ, UK – 01292 282116

Stuart has been advising for several years now and have found him to be consistently helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. He's always willing to take time to talk you through the options available, takes on board your comments and thoughts and has never been pushy in the way some advisors can be. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stuart to anyone looking for a new advisor.

I have known Stuart for some time now, and more recently through business members of his team and have always been treated with appropriate care and kindness. In conversation with relatives and friends when the occasion occurs I never hesitate to recommend Stuart and his team. Through feedback from said persons, Stuart Lang and his team have yet to let me (or them) down.

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 Ayr.

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.
