HI thanks for your question. How much equity will you have in the house? If there is a reasonable amount There are a limited number of building societies that will give mortgages to older people and there is also the possibility of getting a lifetime mortgage or equity release arrangement so that effectively you do not have to repay the mortgage until you both die and then it is paid out of the proceeds. You should go to a reputable mortgage broker and ask for assistance. Be very careful only to go to an FCA authorised firm as there are some unregulated firms out there who offer equity release products which is not a good deal.
