Based in Pembrokeshire

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an equity release adviser?

Our fixed term mortgage at an acceptable interest rate was coming to an end, and the proposed new rate, to take the mortgage to conclusion, was at a much higher figure that would be difficult for us to afford when coupled with the general inflation affecting everything. In addition a conventional repayment mortgage is inflexible, a significant disadvantage as you get older. We looked at the whole market and sought advice. In the event Prab was recommended to us by the principal of the company who had previously arranged our fixed term mortgage. We found his presentation and advice to be constructive, helpful and fully competitive.

How has Prab Singh helped you?

Prab has, from the get go, been friendly and helpful. He dealt with numerous small problems and questions promptly and efficiently. We believe he obtained for us the best deal currently available.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

We have now completed the equity release lifetime mortgage with everything being finalised promptly and efficiently. We believe we have the best deal currently available giving us what we want at acceptable cost.

Prab came highly recommended to help us with a financial situation our friends had also needed information on. He was lovely to talk to. He listened to what I had to say they went through the initial information he required from us. He was totally honest in his response and although perhaps we will not proceed with Equity Release at the moment it is something we would consider on the future and we would go back to Prab. I truly felt he had our best interests at heart.

What were the circumstances that caused you to initially look for an equity release adviser?

I had been thinking of taking out Equity Release for a couple of years and I needed advice on this product. I searched Equity Release Providers on the Internet and Prabs company Responsible Equity Release was a recommended provider.

How has Prab Singh helped you?

Prab Singh, very Responsible.... I had been thinking about and then putting off applying for Equity Release for some time, because I had heard both good and bad stuff about the process. But in the end after realizing it was my only option and after talking to my relations in July I decided to go ahead. I only really looked at two companies, the one was pushy and didn't really understand my needs the other was Responsible Equity Release. I was visited by their advisor/area Manager Mr. Prab Singh, we immediately hit it off, I liked him straight away. He told me all my options, discussed alternatives, of which there were none, to help me financially. He spent about an hour or more just chatting to find out my financial situation and what I needed the money for but there was no pressure. He went away to do some research then came back to me about a week later with the best deal/offer available. He didn't push me into it, and I felt totally at ease that I was doing the right thing, I should have done it sooner. He was professional, to the point, polite and easy going and he arranged everything, the paperwork, the surveyor and the solicitors. I would recommend this company and Prab.

Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?

Yes, pretty much, I couldn't have a got a better deal on my property in its current condition, and in the current financial situation.

I can't think of anything that could have been done better in the circumstances.

The need to raise equity from the property to pay off two existing mortgages without being able to show income to satisfy lending criteria on a traditional mortgage.

How has Prab Singh helped you?

Advised on and fully explained the implications of an Equity Release mortgage. Searched the market to find a lender who would lend on a difficult property and provide an appropriate LTV that would fulfill my requirements. Perhaps most importantly, in the end, was his extreme pro-active stance with the lender, their solicitors and my own solicitor to ensure that the mortgage completed on time, albeit with an extension of time that he was able to negotiate with the lender. His relationship with the lender was of utmost significance to make sure that everything did work out in what turned out to be difficult circumstances. Without him, the mortgage would not have completed
