Any time you are looking for a consolidation loan you are best to talk to your local bank or a mortgage broker. Ideally both. They will be the parties who are most aware of the rules surrounding equity take outs like you propose. Based on the new mortgage rules you are allowed to finance up to 85% of the value of the property, so you should be just able to get enough to cover your debts.
