Hi there. Lookin for advice on taking out a mortgage with employed son. I'm separating at 55 and will have a decent deposit, but wondered about possibility of getting a new mortgage on my own as I have 10 yrs of work left in me ! Plus I would like to cut out the bureaucracy if something happens to me so that son gets the house. is getting a joint mortgage with a 24 yr old viable ? Otherwise invest abroad and skip off to the Sun ?
