Find out how much you could advance tax-free

When someone passes away, it can be a very distressing time for everyone left behind. If you’re a beneficiary, you could be due an inheritance.

Unfortunately, your inheritance can be locked away in the estate and it takes around 12 months on average to receive it.

What would you do if you could access your inheritance today? Go on holiday, buy a new car, pay school fees, or buy that new home?

Now with Inheritance Advance from Tower Street Finance you can.

With Inheritance Advance, you can take up to 60% of your inheritance now, with the remainder received later, minus arrangement fee and any interest from the advance.

The advance, arrangement fee and any interest are repaid from the estate when it reaches distribution, and you receive the rest of your inheritance.

This means that with Inheritance Advance there is no risk, no credit checks, no monthly repayments, no need for a Will, no personal liability and no charge over property.

To give you peace of mind, we’re FCA authorised, we hold five-star Defaqto ratings and our customer service is rated excellent by Trustpilot.

How Inheritance Advance Works FAQs

An inheritance loan can be useful for beneficiaries of an estate where there will be a distribution of cash. If you can provide proof of ID and residence, you could be considered for a probate advance.
If you’re waiting for inheritance to come through, it can sometimes be a long, drawn-out process. On average it takes a year to gain access, and in some situations that may be too long to wait – especially if you need to deal with pressing financial concerns. An advance gives you the option to receive some of your inheritance early, and the funds can be used to help with all manner of things, such as:

Paying off your mortgage
Clearing your debts
Financing home improvement projects
Going on holiday
Purchasing a new car
Putting down a deposit on a new home
Covering medical, veterinary or education costs
If your inheritance is reduced – in the event of another beneficiary coming to light, for example – it will have no impact on you. Once you have received the advance, any subsequent changes to the inheritance are at our risk.
Yes. Your credit rating is not related to your ability to get some of your inheritance early. The advance is secured against the money you are due to receive from the estate. The only thing we will check for when you apply is an undischarged bankruptcy.
That depends on the size of the advance. For anything greater than £60,260 you will normally receive the funds within 48 hours of being approved. If the amount is less than that, however, there will be a 14-day cooling-off period to make sure you still want to go ahead.

Hear from those who’ve benefitted from an Inheritance Advance

“My aunt left everything to me in her will and although I’m 67 I’ve never owned my own home. I found a lovely little cottage and had my heart set on it but because I’m retired with no income I couldn’t take out a mortgage, so was relying on the inheritance and the estate was taking some time to be sorted but I really didn’t want to lose out.

“Tower Street Finance helped me out with an Inheritance Advance so I could secure my dream home and transferred the funds within 96 hours. I’m now a very happy first-time buyer!”
