Savings and Investments
Communication is paramount to successful investment. At the start of our relationship, we’ll sit down over a cup of tea to get to know you and find out your financial objectives, attitude to investment risk, and the likely term of your investment.

Equity Release Advice
Equity release can be a safe, flexible way to maximise your retirement income if all other methods of raising finance have been exhausted.

Mike Oliver is a certified member of the Equity Release Council and can help you discover how to access and extract value from your property, including home reversion plans and lifetime mortgages.

A lifetime mortgage is secured against your home. To understand the features and risks, ask for a personalised illustration

Further Info
For Equity Release, we charge a fee of at least £600. We will also be paid a procuration fee from the mortgage provider, if one is available.

Lifetime mortgages can quickly erode the remaining equity and as a result, there may be no value left to pass on.

Equity Release schemes may work out more expensive than alternatives such as downsizing to a smaller property.

Equity Release can affect eligibility for state benefits and grants, so always check this with an IFA who is qualified to give Equity Release Advice.

Equity Release can limit a customer’s options for moving house in later years.

Mike Oliver Associates do not arrange ‘Home reversion Schemes’.
