Mortgages with Parents

How Mortgages with Parents work

Using your parents' salary or pension to boost income multiples. This deal offers an income multiple of up to four times salary or up to four times the parent's salary after their existing mortgage repayments have been deducted. Alternatively, the bank will lend 2.75 times the parent and child's income combined. The deal may be available up to 100% of the value of the property ( LTV ) ( Check with a mortgage advisor). Parents may also act as guarantors or place money into a savings account to secure a higher percentage mortgage - even up to 100%.

Advantages of Mortgages with Parents

In the case of the combined mortgage is written in both names but – as it is only secured on the child's property – the parent's home is not at risk. In addition the property deeds only need to feature the child's name so the parent will not incur Capital Gains Tax (CGT) liabilities when the property is sold.

Disadvantages of Mortgages with Parents

There are often age restrictions for parents and, as the age of the first-time buyer increases, more parents are retired. Some deals, like that from the Chelsea , require the parent's name to be on the property deeds, which could result in CGT liabilities.
