Bryan Mayhew

Age 71 – Product choice Mortgage

We caught up with Mr and Mrs Mayhew, who recently remortgaged with Key in order to purchase a second home and be closer to their family.

"We first approached Key Retirement with a view to take out equity release in order to help fund the purchase of a second home in Norfolk where our daughter lives with her family.
"However, after discussing our needs and preferences with our adviser, we were advised that a re-mortgage might be a more suitable option as this offered the facility of a higher lump sum and a more competitive interest rate. Importantly for us, we also had the opportunity to repay at least some of the capital.
“Having originally been sceptical about our prospects of getting an affordable mortgage at our age (the wrong side of 70), we were immediately impressed with our advisers positivity.
“The re-mortgage is now complete, providing us with the money to purchase a second home closer to our daughter.
“Since we first contacted Key we have been extremely impressed with the level of service – especially with the pleasant and courteous way in which this has been provided.
“We would have no hesitation in recommending Key Retirement to others in a similar position to ourselves.”

Remember a mortgage is secured against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. You should always think carefully before securing a loan against your property.

Unless you decide to go ahead, our service is completely free of charge, as our advice fee of £995 would only be payable if the mortgage proceeds to completion.
