Vicki,

In theory, the answer is 'yes' you could buy a new home to live in, however this would be subject to you meeting lender criteria, which at 95% loan to value is far stricter and more difficult to meet.

This really is something that we would need to speak to you about directly, in order to say for definite that this is an achievable goal for you.

If you'd like to take this further, please contact one of our consultants on 

0344 346 3672 and they'll be able to give you an idea of how we can help you to move home.

Regards,

Simon
