Can I at 58 get a 17 year mortgage?

Kevin,

It is possible to get a mortgage upto age 75, and with some lenders even slightly longer, however there are a few caveats to throw in.

If the term of the loan is to go beyond your stated retirement age, then most lenders will require proof of sufficient pension income to continue supporting the mortgage until the end of the term. As long as you can provide this I think this is something we can assist you with.

If you'd like to talk your enquiry through in more detail, then please let me know and I'll arrange a convenient time for one of our consultants to talk to you .

Regards,
