Reverse Mortgages/Home Equity Loans ??

Hi there...I live in Canada but am trying to do some research for my mother in law who lives in the UK. She may be interested in what we call here a "reverse mortgage" or "home equity loan" - not sure what you call
them across the pond!? I wonder if anyone can point me to some good online unbiased UK-based references or information about these products in the UK. Your help would be appreciated...

Generally speaking, a useful finance site over here is http://www.fool.co.uk
Word of warning though (although i'm no expert) - you get screwed over with them if the articles i've read are correct.

Spot on. Be sure to read the Raising money from your home booklet in the publications section.
