KRS partners with Unique

Unique will be referring its equity release enquiries from its network of high street brokers to KRS for free for free initial consultations with advisors from KRS.

Paul Wilson, group director at KRS, said: “With an ageing population and increasing pressure on pensions, savings and investments, home equity release options are being given serious consideration by older homeowners.

“We’re looking forward to forging a strong working relationship with Unique and bringing our expertise to a wider market. Sales of equity release plans and the amount release climbed in the first half of 2011, confirming ongoing growth and popularity.”

Diane Caplehorn, divisional director at Unique, added: “Key Retirement Solutions is a market leader in the field of equity release and have helped thousands of people to successfully obtain a tax-free cash lump sum from their home to tide them over or open up new lifestyle opportunities.

“We have been receiving an ever increasing number of equity release enquiries in recent months and it made sense for us to cement a strong working relationship with Key. We hope that this will be the start of a highly successful long term commercial relationship.”
