Danny arrived in good time for our interview, very smartly dressed and really helpful. He mixed business with chatting, and had exactly the right balance between being friendly and business-like. As I had studied the very comprehensive booklet Key had sent me, we were able to dispose of some of the basic stuff.
I informed Danny of all my assets, and he was able to advise me what my next step should be, even though at this stage it is not to take out an Equity Drawdown Policy. However, it is still very much on the cards, but just delayed for a few years. I understand Danny has at least 5 more years working, so I shall make sure I approach Key Retirement Solutions in good time to ensure he is my adviser then. I cannot rate him too highly, top notch chap!
After investigating several other options, I decided to try Key Retirement Solutions, as their's seemed the better deal. After a speedy reply to my query regarding a further cost of £130 per LPA for registration, I went ahead. The process was quick and efficient and cheaper by far than any other quote! Thank you to Chris Houlding.
Never have had the opportunity before to purchase annuities I was apprehensive in using an online broker.
I found Key Retirement Solutions online and after speaking with them and in particular Jacqueline Adams I went ahead with the policy whch seems to fill my requirements.
I would like to thank Jacqueline for her professional and her patient friendly approach in helping me.
My wife and I found KRS very helpful, extremely pleasent, not pushy at all. Everything was explained to us and all our questions were, in our opinion, answered truthfully. We found nothing too much trouble for them. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Right at the beginning when Sarah Jane Ions came to visit me I felt very much at ease with her. She explained everything very clearly to me, which was so helpful as this was such a huge decision and step to make. She was always at the end of the phone when I had a question and always returned my call with an answer. Excellent service from her all the way through.
I watched happy couples on TV and newspaper adverts who had obviously found money through Equity Release but how did it really work? The consultant gave me over 30 minutes on the phone and explained the pros and cons. I was able to ask many questions as we went along and by the end I felt very informed about the whole process. He took my details and a week later came back to me with some actual figures from various providers for my situation. As it happened, I will be delaying the scheme for a few years because of age factors but I have filed my notes and the information (in a colourful folder) so that I can resume where I left off and feel confident in making the correct decisions. A marvellous service and FREE!
I couldn't speak highly enough of jacqui, she has kept us informed when we needed to know something, rather than pester us with nonsense every couple of days, she has been very helpful and polite at all times a pleasure to hear from.
The company was very helpful in telling us all the information we needed right through the process of our e
My husband and myself were very happy with the way Key Retirement Solutions help us through the different stages of getting our Equity up and running especially David.So on behalf of my husband and myself we would like to thank you for your service.

Having decided to consider equity release we contacted Key Retirement Solutions who sent Ray Brown to visit and explain what was involved. We found him very pleasant, courteous and well informed. He explained all details in language that was plain, clear, and unbiased. At each stage of the discussion we were given time to think and ask questions so that we knew exactly what we needed to make an informed decision.
Ray fully understood our equity release requirements and carefully selected More 2 Life as the mortgage company offering the best package to suit us. He also stressed that we should discuss what we were doing with our family before proceeding. When we received an offer from More 2 Life he put us in touch with an excellent solicitor, Peter Barton of Ashfords.
The whole procedure took just under three months and Ray regularly kept in touch with us to ensure that everything was going smoothly and to answer any questions that we may have.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Key Retirement Solutions to anyone who was seriously considering equity release.

Dealing with these matters can be confusing. Michelle Woods made the whole process easy. I was very happy with every aspect of the service.
I found this company to be very helpfull and kept me well informed at all times.
They also obtained a much better annuity for me as compared with other suppliers.
I was also kept well informed and up to date by Scott Lewis, even when i was not
too polite at times on the phone and had not time to talk.
I now look forward to my monthly cheque because as they say every little helps.
Key retirement solutions took on what I felt was a done deal in respect of my annuity and succeeded in improving the expected pay out by over 30% without involving me beyond the initial questions. A great service and one I can easily recommend.
A daunting prospect made so easy by Charlie Grego at Key - little wonder he has won industry awards for being so professional. He took us through the transaction step by step and made sure we understood the detail. I have no doubts that Charlie benefits from the backup of a first class team at Key that ensues the reality matches the words. Key certainly have their finger on the pulse of the Equity Release market and left no stone unturned in the search for the best deal for us. I can thoroughly recommend them to anyone contemplating Equity Release
I would like to thank Michelle Woods for her helpful and professional attitude. I received excellent advice as well as a large increase in my pension. This was due to Michelle's hard work and tireless fortitude in dealing with my existing pension providers and finding me a much improved annuity.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Key Retirement Solutions and Michelle to anyone looking to improve their retirement offer.
Well done and thank you.
We were a little anxious about releasing money from our home but after two meetings with Jeff Major from Key Retirement Solutions the anxiety was dispelled.
The first meeting identified our requirements and financial situation and the final meeting showed us precisely the details of our equity release .
The two meeting with Jeff were very positive and we had no doubts but to proceed with Key.
I found Key Retirement Solutions representative Ivor such a nice helpful person.
His explanations of the whole procedure were very straightforward and succinct.
I was rather nervous about entering into and committing myself to taking equity,
but after meeting with Ivor I felt much more confident.
I am amazed at how quickly and easily everything progressed.
I am delighted and the money will be such an asset to me.
I highly recommend Key Retirement Solutions to anyone contemplating equity
Thank you so much.
I would reccomend this company to anyone, so easy and everything explained to me in detail, no hassle even visit to solicitors easy and didnt take long for completion. I would certainly recomend Richard Haste who made me feel very comfortable.
Mrs Joan Andrade
Throughout we have been under no presure but just given the facts and figures to enable us to reach our decision on equity release without any fear of later reservations. Furthermore the assistance being given by Key in selecting an annuity, granting Powers of Attorney and amending our wills has ensured that any previous financial uncertainties and concerns have been resolved which hopefully ensures that we can enjoy our retirement to the full.
I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of Key RS, in particular Martin Dyet my advisor, he dealt with all and every problem very promptly and very efficiently, if I had any further dealings through Key RS I would request that he is my contact.
friendly,polite,gave me all the information required,kept me up to date as things were progressing,top service with a smile. michelle woods is very professional,very helpful indeed, a credit to your company, many thanks to you.
There are many thing to consider with Equity Release. Our Key Retirement Solutions contact was Elaine Fletcher. Elaine made the process easy to understand, items to consider and questions to ask were answered, and papers to read into an easy step by step understanding. Part of the process was checking our Wills ensuring we have covered all the parts when our family has to sort out our past life.
Thank you Elaine.
Jean & Barry
From the start we have had excellent communication and any worries carefully explained in detail,backed up by paper copies of the different stages.No pressure was brought and plenty of time was allowed for each meeting.We would definitely tell friends about the company as we have been very impressed by the high standard,and Derek Wren has been very professional at each meeting..
Julie Massey from K R S explained the process involved in equity release in a clear & concise fashion.
Not only was Julie very professional but she was very friendly as well. Her manner & patients made the whole process far less daunting than I thought it would be.
I would recommend Julie at KRS to anyone contemplating equity release.
After spending the last 30 years of my 43 years full-time working life helping people with the various problems they had, it was quite strange to all of a sudden to have to myself ask for help in sorting out what seemed to be a complete minefield but I had no need to worry for -luckily for me - Gemma McDermott from Key Retirement Solutions answered my call for assistance and it wasn't in a way that you find a lot of organisations operate, very matter of fact and clinical almost in their approach that you almost feel you are being a nuisance and certainly not at ease in asking what are simple and perhaps irrelevant questions to them but of the most important to you. . From the very beginning, when she so quickly responded to my initial on-line enquiry, I immediately felt like I had made a new friend because of the way in which she spoke to me, reassuring and patient in explaining what would happen, I just knew I was in good hands and when she said to leave everything with her you just knew that you could - it was a huge weight off my shoulders and I came away with more money into the bargain!
We couldn't believe how incredibly easy and quickly it all went through. From the first phonecall enquiry to the last contact with Joe who helped process it all we were kept informed at every step. We wouldn' hesitate to recommend Key Retirement Solutions to anyone.
Hi, I can recommened key solutions, I used them to obtain an Annuity.
Kim Wilson gave me very good advice, there was no pressure. I had time to think about and research what I was being told.
Kim kept in regular touch with me .
I would not hesitate using Key Solutions again.
Again thank you Kim for your help
Would recommend this company to use, for making a will over the phone, Incredibalely easy and proffesional,
Stacey Kellet was pleasantly persistent in maintaining contact when it was initially difficult at times for me to speak. She always delivered what was promised and responded quickly and clearly to our questions. The annuity options were clearly explained in the information provided by Key Retirement solutions, which helped us decide what it was that we wanted. We would be very happy to use KRS again and to deal with them through Stacey.
We were contacted with Key Retirement Solutions via a search engine. I was expecting to get illustrations but instead had a telephone call from an advisor, Mr Rob Saunders. I was then expecting a "hard sell" but in fact it was the very opposite anf we were grateful for the unbaised advice we received. and for the assistance in guiding us through the process. There are no costs to us and the complete pension pot is transferred to an annuity. We would certainly recommend Mr Saunders and his company to others
We thought about this long and hard prior to asking for our first meeting. Elaine Fletcher put us at our ease and helped with all the paperwork, questions, fears and details. The actual process was fairly easy and completed within the timescale discussed. The only downside to the whole process is that many adverts show cashbacks etc, but when we sat down none of these applied and I believe the cost to be excessive for what is achieved. Almost 10% of our drawdown figure? You need to look at this area? I beleive that if you are going to offer incentives that this should apply to all products and not just selected ones that draw people in? Regards
I found the Key representative, Mr Graham Moore-Grundy, very informative and honest in his assessment of my needs. The product I was enquiring about was not right for me and he was very quick to explain why.
