Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know how long is left? Does it have a right to renew?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It ended March 2014 and I'm not sure about right to renew, haven't been made aware of it, when my husband passed away,(he did everything) it wasn't until I informed the b society that I was nearing the end of interest only mortgage and I didn't have insurance cover

Can they claim possession sadly yes.
This is because if there is a balance owing and there will be because its interest only, they can apply to the Court for possession. What you would need to do is get an alternative mortgage with someone else. But sadly you cant force the current lender to give you a further advance.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
