Joint Mortgage Sole Proprietor

If you need a little help to afford your dream home a Joint Mortgage, Sole Proprietor (JMSP) mortgage may be the right solution for you.

A JMSP mortgage allows you to buy a home with help from family.

This can help you get on the property ladder or take the next step sooner than may be possible otherwise, as we will take your family members' income into account when working out how much you will be able to borrow. 

We will consider the income and expenditure of both households in our assessment of affordability.

Our JMSP arrangement lets one or two owners plus up to two family members join in the mortgage to support the owner(s). The supporting family members won't be joint owners of the property but they will be counted as borrowers.

This means while all of you will have joint responsibility for the mortgage payments and full repayment of the loan, only the owners named on the title deeds have a legal claim over the property or any increase in value.

You can speak to us about removing your family members, once your financial position changes.
