BBC weatherman, Bill Giles OBE, joins Key Retirement Solutions campaign to promote specialist, indep

Former senior BBC Weatherman, Bill Giles OBE, has joined the campaign to urge consumers who are considering releasing cash from their home to seek specialist, independent advice.

Bill Giles OBE, decided to release equity from his home in April 2006. Central to his research when looking for a plan was to ensure that he used a specialist independent adviser - so he contacted Key Retirement Solutions, the UK’s leading independent equity release specialist. After being impressed with the service he received and pleased with his final decision, Bill has become increasingly passionate about ensuring that those considering equity release are aware of the pitfalls of not taking appropriate advice, so he has joined up with Key to help raise awareness on the importance of receiving specialist equity release advice.

Bill Giles OBE said: "It made sense to release the cash in my home now to help out my family when they need it most, and while I can see them enjoy it. I was keen too that I protected my home from the hands of the tax man to ensure I minimised the inheritance tax that would have to have been paid from my estate.

I recognised how important it was to get specialist independent advice. I’m not one to take chances and the market can be confusing to navigate on your own, especially if you don’t know about all the different types of equity release available. I was amazed by just how many plans there were and the differences in cost from one provider to another. I chose Key Retirement Solutions for their specialist knowledge and experience of the market and their reliable advice. It gave me great peace of mind to know that Key were working on my behalf to find the most suitable way of releasing funds from my home"
