Home Buying Guide
Gifted deposit and a gifted deposit mortgage is a way of buying a first home without raising the deposit yourself.
A gifted deposit is a sum of money given by a third party for use as a deposit for a property. More and more first time buyers are receiving gifted deposits either from family members or house-builders to help them on the first rung of the property ladder. This can make the difference between being able to afford your first home and not becsaue you can buy a home with no deposit! The reason these have a special name is because there are particular tax laws governing the money accepted as a gift. That being said, many first time buyers are benefiting from this way of buying a gifted deposit property.
