The decision as to whether you can purchase the property yourself
or with others is mainly based on finances.
Can you afford the repayments?
There is another decision to consider, and that is who shall I
purchase the property with?
For some this is easy, as it is a partner, for others however
the choice may be slightly more complicated
Careful consideration is required when buying a property with
one or more partners.
That is not in any way to suggest that it should not be pursued,
On the contrary we believe it is an excellent way to get a foot
hold on the property ladder and avoid paying rent.
First step is to see how much you can borrow ,by yourself, with
one other or indeed with two others.
Banks vary in their appetite for multiple borrowers. Review our
lenders section to see the different views.
Today many first time buyers are starting off by borrowing jointly
with their parents with a view over time to taking the mortgage
and the property into their own name.
Banks facilitate this by having one name on the deed with the
applicant and the parent names being on the mortgage document.
The banks will review the necessity for the parents name remaining
on the mortgage as the primary applicants income circumstances
