Spring is in the air – balmy weather, and even sunshine at times. Now I’m sounding like Peter Cockroft (who, incidentally, was at school with my brother in Swanage). But enough of my ramblings - and on with the business at hand!
As usual, you’ll find loads of events on Networking in Surrey (over 120) lots of…Continue
The assumption is often made that when people reach retirement age, if they are to move home it will be to downsize to a smaller and typically lower value property.
For many homeowners in later life moving home is a lifestyle choice, for example moving nearer to relatives or to a bungalow near the sea. Often this involves moving to a more expensive property.

It's clear that in these troubled times, people are getting more and more concerned about their own finances. Understandably so. We may be out of a recession at the moment but there's the possibility that one false move will put us back into a double-dip recession without a moment's warning.
New survey results have been released:…Continue

Oh dear! The news is just one catastrophe after another at the moment...
but let's not allow ‘compassion fatigue’ to stop us thanking our lucky stars we aren’t in Libya, Japan or any of the world’s other disaster zones right now. Perhaps feeling sorry for all those innocent people having their lives destroyed by events beyond their control may just stop us feeling…Continue

What's hot on the Networking Scene right now?
I was recently interviewed about NiS on Brooklands Radio by Sally James for her Business Affairs programme. As co-host of TisWas with Chris Tarrant, Sally was a huge hit with teenage lads (and their Dads!) She now runs her own successful businesses here in Surrey, where she's an…Continue
The BBC ran a very telling story today. During April/May with bank holidays, a royal wedding and inset days, in some areas there are only 6 school days over a 30 day period.
I have been working with clients who, as working mums, are finding it really hard to evaluate the benefits of going out to work in order to try and balance the books.
As a hypothetical…Continue

Recent research from Shelter has shown that an amazing one in four mortgage holders are unaware that interest rates are at an historic low of 0.5%.
In a survey of more than 1,500 UK homeowners, 25% believe current interest rates are either higher or the same than they have been in the past or simply don’t know.
Within the 25% who are…Continue

Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) has forecast that the Bank of England will increase base rate to 1% by the summer, hitting nine out of ten mortgage borrowers.
Its research suggests that far more households are now exposed to rate hikes, estimating 90% of all mortgages in the UK are variable rates, up from 60% in 2007, and well beyond the FSA's estimate of 68%. LGIM warn that…Continue

Yippee! It’s Shrove (Pancake) Tuesday and I’ll even be missing tonight’s pub quiz to indulge with the ‘rellies’. Bacon and maple syrup is my favourite topping, closely followed by smoked salmon and crème fraîche, with ice cream and chocolate syrup bringing up the rear. Apparently, I’m giving up beer for Lent :0(
On Monday morning we reached our milestone target of 1,000…Continue

Mortgage applicants who take the life insurance deal offered to them by their mortgage lender could be paying 50% more than they need.
Research has found that life insurance and mortgage protection products being sold by the country’s biggest mortgage lenders do not always offer the best value. In some cases, the research definitely points the finger at branch based advisers of pushing customers towards taking even more expensive options.
Using one typical…
