On retirement at age 75, my superannuation cleared my mortgage and other major liabilities with a small balance but my... wife and I realised the aged pension was insufficient even for our modest lifestyle. Going by the numbers, we were advised to downsize but that didn't take into account how much the amenity and the location of our house contributed to the quality of our life.We had been warned about the risks of reverse mortgages but we were also aware that they had been subject to close scrutiny in recent years and that there had been substantial improvements to the products available. Andrew Cate from Seniors First took great pains to ensure we understood the financial risks involved and our obligations in taking on a reverse mortgage while explaining the advantages and benefits we could enjoy.Andrew reviewed our requirements, as we did need initial funding for some remedial building works and had plans for other improvements over the next 5 years - but we didn't need a large upfront advance. As a result, he was able to recommend a reverse mortgage product from Gateway which will suit us very nicely over the next 10-15 years while we are able to enjoy an active independent lifestyle.read more

Firstly let us say that we have no complaints about Seniors First.Secondly, the representative we dealt with was very... helpful, personable and always followed up promptly to any questions or queries that we had. We were impressed with his diligence.Thirdly, we highly recommend Seniors First based on our experience with them.Fourthly, if all your dealings with both Seniors First and the bank are all done via email and telephone calls it can be quite arduous getting through all the mountain of paperwork and reading attached to the complete paperwork package.read more
