Customer Question

Hi There
Me again!
I just spoke to my mortgage advisor and they are advising that lenders wont lend to me if my parents gift me the money and then live in the house. The reason being that if they reside there it's not a true gift. So if I default and the house is sold they would have the right to first call on the proceeds of the house (over and above the lender). Does that ring true??

Is this a first level lender?

There should still be lenders who are willing to agree to this provided your parents have separate legal advice and are aware that their investment is at risk
They will be asked to sign a Deed of Postponement - but that is not unusual
Once the purchase has completed then you will sign a Declaration of Trust to protect their interest
