How Equity Release helped Adrian

Decided to look into equity release on my home to raise capital and carry out an extension. I knew Ben a long time and he passed the details of Sandra who sat with me and discussed my options and went off to crunch the numbers. Sandra helped raise the equity release on my home with the great solicitors, then everything was signed, sealed & delivered. Home improvements complete, no overdraft concerns. As you will see the importance of the team makes all the difference between success and failure.
