What can you do to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and keep yourself safe?

18th March 2020

Although we are all very aware of the presence of the COVID-19 virus, taking additional precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of the virus is vital.

1. If you have been in contact with someone with coronavirus or have returned from an affected area identified by the Chief Medical Officer as high risk and you are feeling unwell with a cough, difficulty breathing or fever, stay at home and use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service or call NHS 111.

2. Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so. Use hand sanitiser if that’s all you have access to.

3. To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don’t have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Then wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel.

4. Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

In these challenging times, it is important that we all look after each other. We must be particularly vigilant of the sick, vulnerable and elderly and support them as much as we can, including the need to keep ourselves strong and well.

At Kevin Woods we will endeavour to help you in whatever way we can and we are always here to offer support and advice, as far as possible, to all our clients and their families.

Keep safe everyone

Equity release will reduce the value of your estate and may also affect your entitlement to means-tested benefits. You should always think carefully before securing a loan against your home.

Unless you decide to go ahead, our service is completely free of charge as our usual advice fee of 1.99% of the amount released would only be payable on completion of a plan, subject to a minimum advice fee of £1499.

A lifetime mortgage is the most popular form of equity release, and is a loan secured against your home that’s typically repaid when you pass away or go into long-term care.
