The figures predict that parents will fund £6.7bn worth of money to help pay their child’s mortgage deposit. Making parents as important as the top 9th mortgage lender in the UK*.
What this means to home owners and First Time Buyers
Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:
“The research from Legal and General shows that the age group most likely to need help from their parents are those under the age of 30. And, the area where Your Mortgage Expert is based in the South West has the most generous parents with them funding £30,000 worth of financial support per transaction on average.
“Our experience echoes this, with lots of new clients who come to us struggling to get together a sizeable deposit and relying on the help of their parents in order to get on the property ladder.”
