The Free Money Advice Service has been setup by the government to provide impartial advice on most financial matters but is particularly good on Equity Release. 

Equity Release is a minefield but a necessary minefield! Get it right and older people can raise money on their property - potentially allowing them to afford to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. Get it wrong and they can accumulate an enormous debt and effectively disinherit their children as the finance company claims their home in order to repay the accumulated loan when they die. The link below may help you decide whether this might be a useful route to go down. However just as importantly consider using a financial adviser.
This is a simple AgeUK Equity Release calculator which will help you find out how much an equity release loan would allow you to raise on your house.

TSB Bank

40 Blackwellgate, Darlington DL1 5HW, UK – 01325 919997

I love this Bank and wouldn't Bank anywhere else when most Banks these days are relying on customer's performing almost all of their transactions themselves the TSB has real people to talk to and to help you.

Always gone out of way to help

Yorkshire Bank

35-37 High Row, Darlington DL3 7QT, UK – 0800 456 1247

The team are helpful and friendly and go over and above what they need to. It's free banking. They let me have an account to pay bills at no cost and saves me a lot of time. Also fab machines to save me even more time when I'm in the branch (which is rare for most people). Would expect mistakes can be made if I'm using the staff because that's part and parcel of the human touch and know they would rectify it as soon as they found out and would also expect to queue if I go into a bank without shouting or being rude to the staff (which I've seen in many banks). After all customers don't always have to go in the bank . This team love a chat with their customers. Keep going because it's nice to have friendly faces in a bank!!!

Excellent service staff were so helpful very friendly pity so many branches are closing much prefer the personal touch

5 star customer service. Was thinking about leaving after a problem which I thought nationwide should of held some responsibility for. After going into my local branch in Huddersfield and having no joy and also calling the customer service line I thought enough is enough. I came to this branch as I was working in the north east. The customer service manager and the branch manager where extremely helpful and very understanding and solved the problem no questions asked. This branch is very good take note Huddersfield these lads know how to look after there customers. Thank you
