Product key features

Family Assist Mortgages

Our 100% Family Assist mortgage is designed for borrowers whose family may be in a position to help financially.

You don't need to have a deposit, however additional security will be needed in the form of a collateral charge against a family members' property for which independent legal advice must be taken. This means your mortgage will be secured against both the purchase property and your family members' property. Proof of legal advice given to the family member will be required as a condition of the mortgage and any advice will be at your expense.

This charge will be 35% of the amount you are looking to borrow and because of this your family member must have at least 40% equity in their home.

A standard valuation will be completed on both the purchase property and your family members' property, this will be at your expense. You will also need to pay for your own legal costs and your family members' independent legal advice.

We will need your family members' written consent for us to carry out a credit check against them. No income assessments or further underwriting are completed against the family member. The amount you can borrow is determined by assessing your income and status only.

Product related fees

Our Family Assist mortgage has an arrangement fee of £999. This fee can be paid up front by deducting the fee from the mortgage amount or it can be added to the amount you borrow.

Be aware that if you add the arrangement fee to your mortgage you will pay interest on the fee at the same rate as your mortgage.
