My Mortgage Podcast - Season 1 - Episode 2
This episode is all about how family can help you with your first home purchase. We discuss:
Parental guarantees - The likelihood of success with a parental guarantee, potential restrictions on the parents, and whether banks are keen to accept it.
The Springboard loan - Which banks are involved, how it works, and who it’s for.
The positives and negatives of joint ownership, including a quick chat about bright-line property rule.
Getting a loan from parents to make up your deposit - some scenarios where this might apply, and some of the relationship property agreements involved.
We also discuss some of the things you need to consider when being gifted money for your deposit, and what happens if parents want to sell a house to their children.
