Being independent and single can make paperwork and financial planning a little simpler but it is vital to plan ahead in order to create a financially secure future for yourself.

Being single could be a lifestyle choice or through a change in your circumstances such as a divorce or the death of a partner. You may have dependants meaning your money is not just your own.

Whatever your circumstances or age, you are in control but there are lots of things to think about. Such as paying your mortgage or rent if you were suddenly unable to work (through illness, an accident or redundancy) to making sure your Pension is working hard for you. This allows you to focus on the here and now but still work towards living out your dream retirement. Planning and focus are crucial when you are budgeting from one income; we understand it can be tricky to set aside additional funds to pay into things like your pension, protection as well as build up your savings. But without these Financial Wellbeing fundamentals, financial security and peace of mind rarely come about.

You should also be giving thought to what you would like to happen to your estate in the event of your death. Not nice to think about we know, but essential in order to reduce stress on your loved ones and friends you leave behind and, to make sure the people you want to benefit, do.


Are you in need of a first-time buyer mortgage, a re-mortgage to upsize or downsize or a Buy-to-Let in order to create an additional income stream? Do you need help to make the process more streamlined?

Your home or other property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Some buy to let mortgages are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
