Take a look at our case study and see how we helped Geoff
Geoff is 58 and lives alone in Wimbledon.
He came to us as he found himself in a position where he just did not have enough money leftover at the end of the month to live a happy and meaningful life. Geoff works full-time, but after paying for a small mortgage, car loan and credit cards – there was not a lot leftover. This was especially the case as Geoff’s fixed rate period on his mortgage had ended and suddenly his monthly mortgage payments had rocketed.
We looked at the various options and solutions available and recommended a Lifetime Mortgage which paid off the mortgage and cleared the credit card and car loan in full. This freed up £1,000 per month and gave Geoff huge peace of mind.
We also recommended that Geoff make payments towards his new mortgage, but one that was manageable. This would mean that the amount left to his daughter in the end would be as much as possible.
This flexibility allows Geoff to enjoy life again and also to choose how long he wants to work for, with pensions due to be paid out in the future.
