Don’t compromise your future
We all want the best for our children, but there are ways of helping them out that don’t involve putting your financial security at risk. While the Bank of Granny and Grandad is certainly alleviating the pressure on parents, it’s not wise to rely solely on their support.
There are a range of government schemes available to prospective homebuyers which can help them buy a property without a significant cash boost from family members. The Help to Buy: Equity Loan, the Help to Buy: Shared Ownership scheme and the Lifetime ISA (LISA) can all help boost your child’s ability to buy their first home.
