Nick Craddock

Nick has been invaluable in helping me to decide how to proceed to achieve the desired outcome with a lifetime mortgage. His knowledge and expertise is only exceeded by his patience and understanding of my particular needs. He explained clearly and patiently all aspects of the procedure. I cannot praise him highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend him to others - indeed I already have to a personal friend in a similar situation. If this helps others, I am a 77 year old widowed female who wanted to move to be nearer to family and friends. I did not think this would be possible but Nick has shown that it indeed was!
