But NOT to those living in Australia.

I am a UK expat living in Italy, and wish to borrow in order to extend my freehold property in London.
From March next year I plan to retire, and at that time my income from both rent and pension will be £62,000, which along with my partners earnings will add up to £80,000.
I plan to inject 100,000 of cash for the project, and would be looking for a mortgage of £100 to £150,000.
I should appreciate someone getting back to me to see if it would be possible for you to arrange this?
Thanks for your help.
