Andrew,

This isn't the easiest question to answer. Your age is probably key to what we can do here. Interest only can still be arranged, subject to how you intend to repay it, and the loan to value that you need. We can also look at guarantor mortgages, depending on the incomes for your two sons.

For the more complex situations we may have to look outside of the major lenders, as they tend to be very black and white these days, and therefore we may to approach a lender who manually underwrites and can judge the case on its individual merits.

Before I can give you any concrete advice or guidance, there's a lot more I'd need to know regarding your presonal financial situation and that of your sons.

If you'd like to have an initial discusson to look at your options in more detail then please let me know and I'll arrange a convenient time to talk.

Regards,
