I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

You may speak to your current lender and see if they are able to extend the term of your mortgage and lend you the £25,000 which you may repay over a period of time so that your mortgage continues.


Alternatively, your bank may be willing to offer you an unsecured loan of £25,000.
