A Note from Bob Ducker

“I have worked in Financial Services since 1980 and in that time I have helped thousands of very satisfied customers to buy their dream homes.

In 2007, when equity release was being revitalised, I realised that more and more people were retiring with much smaller pensions than they expected and because interest rates were low, they were also not getting great returns on their investments or their annuities. However, many of these people were living in nice properties with either small or no mortgages at all. So as the saying goes, they are property-rich but cash-poor'.

With the new regulations regarding equity release, these people can now release some of those monies to enhance their lifestyle, clear any outstanding debts, help their children, or have those dream holidays. Yet they’ll still stay in that home for the rest of their lives with no mortgage repayments.

As an independent mortgage, equity release, and protection adviser with Mortgage Marketplace Ltd, I can research the entire equity release market and source the most competitive deals and solutions for your equity release needs. Put simply, I want to assist you to enjoy your retirement whilst helping you save money wherever I can. You can be assured that my fee's among the most competitive on the market.”

How Does It Work?

When you complete the contact details on this page, we telephone you to undertake an initial friendly chat. We will then ascertain your needs and answer any questions that you may have. From that discussion, we’ll be able to get an idea of what you are looking for. We ensure that you qualify for equity release and discuss how it could work for you.

Once this is done, we conduct a free, no-obligation consultation to complete a full analysis of your situation, explain how equity release works, check how it may affect any state benefits or your personal taxation, and then tailor the advice to your specific needs.

We explain the importance of using an independent mortgage adviser and provide you with a full explanation of how we get paid. All of the fees and charges are explained before you make a decision.

Usual timeframes are four to six weeks, and this is from our initial chat to the money being paid into your account.
