What is a Gifted Deposit Mortgage in Leicester?

Gifted Deposit Mortgage Advice in Leicester

When it comes to Gifted Deposits, there are quite a few questions that customers normally bring up especially if they are First Time Buyers in Leicester, this article will answer some of those questions.

Who can gift the deposit

It tends to be “Bank of Mum and Dad” that gifts the deposit to the applicant and this is acceptable to most Lenders but ultimately it can be anyone.

In addition, your Mortgage Broker and Lender/Solicitor will be required to see evidence of the build-up of funds and also identification.

Can it be a loan rather than a gift?

In almost all circumstances it needs to be a gift and the donor will sign a letter to confirm the funds are non-refundable.

They will not put a “charge” on the property you are buying. Be careful though, taking out a personal loan just before applying for a mortgage will probably have a downward effect on your credit score.

This could lead to a mortgage application being rejected. Also, the monthly payments for the loan will have to be taken into account by the mortgage lender for affordability.

How much can be gifted?

There isn’t a maximum limit on the amount of gift you can receive.
