Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor (JBSP) mortgages

Here at the Tipton, we recognize that gaining a foothold on the property ladder can be difficult. Our Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor (JBSP) mortgages are here to support first time buyers, whose parents are in a position to help them support their mortgage.

A JBSP mortgage enables the applicant’s parent(s) to join the mortgage, in order for their income to be taken into consideration when it comes to assessing affordability. There is no need for the parent(s) to be added to the title deeds, meaning that your client(s) have sole ownership of the purchase property. This also means that parents who already own their residential home, will not have any further implications in relation to Stamp Duty that may have occurred if they did have to appear on the deeds.

Who is entitled to do a JBSP mortgage?

Our Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor mortgages are strictly for applicant/parent relationships. With the intention being, the parent(s) are to support the applicant(s) as a short-term solution until they are in a position financially to take over the mortgage as normal. Maximum age of the applicant(s), (excluding parents) at application must not exceed 35.

Reverse JBSP cases, where it is in fact the child who is supporting the parent(s), will be considered on a case by case basis. Sibling supported applications are not acceptable.

Things to consider

  • All borrowers must take separate and independent legal advice as part of the conveyancing process.
  • All borrowers must sign the Mortgage Deed in front of the solicitor acting as the conveyancer. This must be on a face to face basis.
  • Release of one of the borrowers from the mortgage will require approval from the Society and be reliant on the mortgage being affordable by the remaining parties. Any legal costs incurred will be the responsibility of the borrowers.
  • The affordability calculation takes into account the additional parties outgoings i.e. they must have disposable income that could be used towards the mortgage should the need arise as they are jointly and severally liable for the debt.
