Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.

You will need to go and see a specialist broker. This is because based on the figures about you would only be able to borrow around £100,000 with High Street lenders. But if you go and see a Financial Adviser or Mortgage Broker, if you Google search this you will see there are lots and could find one in your area - they can search in depth for you.

Can I clarify anything for you about this please? Alex
