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.

Happy customer. Friendly (ish) staff. Nice store

Large inside and plenty of 'help yourself' machines which helps you either skip the queue or at least helps reduce it.

HSBC

8 Market Square, Staffordshire, Stafford ST16 2JP, UK – 0345 740 4404

After splitting up with my partner, who had not allowed me any access to the joint finances, I found myself having to piece together what was actually happening with my money every month, having to open myself a new bank account, trying to separate what was my financial responsibility and what were joint responsibility, all at a time when I was obviously having to deal with a lot of other issues. The staff in this branch couldn't do enough for me, especially Anne who has been "my Rock". thanks to everyone of these people, they're the best!

Plenty of automated machines and staff on hand if you need help. No counter service on Saturday's though which isn't very useful.

Lloyds Bank

5 Market Square, Stafford ST16 2JL, UK – 0345 300 0000

Excellent service provided by Lloyds after the passing of my father, thank you for making the process painless.

A nice bank with friendly staff, however the queue can get really long and they keep changing there opening times on a Saturday - I personally preferred the extended hours but they are no longer available.

Mortgage Brokers

The Money Bee

Parkfield Business Centre, Park St, Stafford ST17 4AL, UK – 01785 878555

The Money Bee and the team have been brilliant throughout my Mortgage applications. The team including Sharon and Simon have been brilliant from the first contact all the way through to the process, keeping me informed and giving regular feedback. Working in the Mortgage industry I had an idea of what I wanted for my mortgage, but with the help and the expertise from The Money Bee I feel I now have the correct Mortgage product for my needs and also the right life insurance to cover me, the advice given for both of these has been brilliant and I have always felt in control and that I have all the information that I need. The mortgage applications has been hard to complete with the Lender having issues with their system, but Simon worked tirelessly to make sure that the Mortgage Offer was received in time for the completion and kept me informed all the way through the process. I can’t thank the Money Bee enough for all their hard work and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for advice on their Mortgage and Life insurance.

We would just like to say what excellent and professional service we received from the team at Money Bee.Simon and Sharon helped us get a mortgage , nothing was too much trouble and they kept us informed at different stages .We would highly recommend this company so anyone out there who is after a mortgage give these guys a chance .They listen to your needs , and keep you up to date with the day to day goings on of your mortgage application .Thank you again Simon and Sharon we couldn't have got our first home without you .
