parents help

Postby Mezzyboo » Mon Feb 15, 2010 6:51 pm

I have read up on guarantor loans, however my question is slightly different...
My mother has recently inherited about $150,000. She does not own her home and is a pensioner. I do not want to ask her to loan us the money for a deposit, but am wondering if she is able to go guarantor for us? Say if the money was in a term deposit account that couldnt be touched?
My partner and I have been pre approved for up to $400,000, but dont plan on borrowing more than $300,000. We know we can afford to pay a mortgage as our rent is over $1700 p.m. We are just hoping to find a way to borrow without our own deposit.

Yes it is possible to have cash as security for a guarantee. Your mother would need to put her funds into a term deposit with the lender you are going with and then they could use this as security for a loan. Note that not all lenders have this option, in fact only a couple allow you to do this.
