Family Home Loans

There are times a single applicant may not qualify for a standard home loan, but could qualify if other members of their household join the application.

We know millions of young people still live at home or are struggling paying expensive rent. That means they will only have a small deposit to put down on a property and they miss out on most of the better mortgage rates. At the same time, families may have savings and property that could be used as security for a buyer. The Family Mortgage brings these wider family assets into the mortgage calculation, helping to reduce the cost for the buyer but not asking family members to hand it over as a gift.
