Parent guarantor mortgages
Published 16th August 2017
Anyone interested in getting a mortgage with parents help is usually enquiring for 2 reasons:
- They don’t have enough deposit
- They can’t afford the mortgage they need
In both scenarios it is possible to buy a property with parental support, but this is achieved in different ways.
If you don’t have the deposit together then you can fund it through a parental gift of cash, or via a charge on a family member’s property or savings in the bank – under the various purchase schemes currently available.
If however, the borrower has deposit (via their own savings or a gift) but their income won’t allow them to borrow what they need, then they may be assessed on their parent’s income.
