For equity release, the fee for our advice will depend on your circumstances; we may charge a fee on application (non-refundable) plus a percentage of the loan amount. We will also be paid commission by the lender. For example: an initial fee of £250 payable upon application plus a fee of 3% of the loan amount payable on completion. On a release of £50,000 the fee will be £2,000 made up of £250 + £250 + £1,500 (3% of £50,000).
