A joint borrower, sole proprietorship mortgage product is designed for people who can’t borrow on their own but can if they have a partner or friend to help them. This means that a person earning less may obtain assistance from a family member, spouse, or friend to apply for a mortgage together, but they will not be recognised as the legal owner of the property.
How Parents can help their children get on the ladder?
Helping children get on the property ladder has never been more important, as house prices continue to increase across the UK.
There are a few things that parents can do to help their children buy their first home:
- Save as much money as possible so that you can contribute towards your child’s deposit.
- Help them to get a good mortgage deal by using your own good credit score to guarantee their loan, or act as a guarantor for their mortgage.
- Help with the costs of buying a property by providing a gift of money or equity from your own home.
- Use your existing knowledge of the property market to help them find the right home and negotiate the best price.
What are the benefits of a joint borrower sole proprietor mortgage?
- Your child may be able to borrow a greater amount than if they were applying on their own because the finances are already under your control.
- Unlike a guarantor mortgage, a JBSP mortgage won’t require you to put up additional security, such as your home or savings, to guarantee the loan
- Because you won’t be holding any ownership stake in the property, you won’t have to pay the second home stamp duty surcharge.
JBSP mortgage eligibility
Lenders are more likely to approve an application if your kid can demonstrate that their income will rise in the future. Lenders also consider the age of the parent because, by the end of the mortgage term, you’ll be significantly older.
If you are thinking of helping your child to buy their first home, a joint borrower, sole proprietor mortgage could be the perfect solution. With this type of mortgage, your child can borrow money with the benefit of utilising your income.
A guarantor mortgage is a type of loan that is designed for people who can’t get a mortgage on their own. To be eligible for a guarantor mortgage, you must have a guarantor – usually a family member – who is willing to agree to pay the mortgage if you can’t.
A joint mortgage is a type of loan that is designed for two or more people who want to buy a property together. This type of mortgage can be helpful for couples who are buying their first home, or for friends or family members who want to purchase a property together.
You’ll be named on the mortgage document and on the deeds, which gives you some control over future deals. However, if you already own a home, you’ll almost certainly have to pay the second property stamp duty surcharge.
You may make money by remortgaging if you have a mortgage on your house. This would entail renegotiating or switching to another lender for your existing mortgage.
Another form of loan you might receive that is secured on your home is a second mortgage from your existing lender.
It’s critical to think about the impact higher borrowing would have on your standard of living and retirement plans while remortgaging.
