Start planning your retirement move


Should We Move When We Retire?

You should consider moving when you retire if you haven’t finished paying off your mortgage. Downsizing could help provide you with a sizeable retirement fund so that you can live much more comfortably than relying on just your pensions alone. There are lots of options to consider though such as equity release and it is important to consider which is best for your needs.
