Buy with help from family

Thinking of buying but require a little help?

There are a number of ways relatives can help another family member get onto the property ladder or move home such as Family Assist or Guarantor Mortgages. Even with interest rates remaining relatively low, it’s never been more difficult for first time buyers or home movers to purchase a home. However we offer a solution, and it comes in the shape of family.

Use our mortgage calculator below

Use our mortgage calculator to view our current mortgage deals. You’ll get an idea of how much you could borrow and compare monthly payments. The monthly repayments stated are based on a repayment type (capital plus interest) mortgage over the term selected. This calculator is for illustrative purposes only and is not a mortgage offer. Before agreeing a loan, a credit search and full application is required, and our lending requirements must be met.

Family Assist Mortgage

Our Family Assist Mortgage offers borrowers a competitive rate on their mortgage with as little as a 5% deposit and in return the borrower’s relative opens a Progressive Family Assist Savings Account for an amount equating to 10%  of the purchase price of the property for a period of 2 years.

The savings are used as security against the borrower’s mortgage. The savings account will earn interest (please refer to the Progressive Family Assist Savings Account for more detail) and has a term of 2 years from the start of the mortgage. (e.g. Where the mortgage starts on 1st January 2020 the savings term will end on 1st January 2022).  The savers are required to obtain independent legal advice.

The Family Assist Mortgage is available to first time buyers and home movers (not available for self-build or remortgage applications).

Guarantor Mortgage

If you cannot afford the home you would like to purchase on your own, you may wish to consider taking out a Guarantor Mortgage. Our Guarantor Mortgage is a way for family members to help you get on to the property ladder. When someone agrees to act as a mortgage guarantor for you, this means they sign a legal agreement confirming that they will cover your mortgage repayments if you fall behind. The guarantor will not own a share of the house, and they won’t be named on the deeds.
