JBSP Mortgage Advice

What is a Joint Borrower, Sole Proprietor (JBSP) Mortgage?

A JBSP mortgage is a specialist type of lending to help people get on the property ladder. It enables home buyers to purchase a home with the assistance of a family member. Crucially, while both you and your family member remain responsible for repaying the mortgage loan, you will remain the sole proprietor of the property.

Here’s how it works:

  • Useful if you have struggled to get a mortgage based on your income alone
  • Enables you to benefit from the goodwill of a family member or sometimes it can be a someone like a god parent or a friend
  • Generally it would be just one family member, but some lenders will allow up to 4 borrowers on the mortgage
  • You will be the homeowner which means you will own 100% of the property (sole proprietor)
  • You and your family member are both named on the mortgage and you are both responsible for making the mortgage payments (joint borrower)
  • The lender will take into account both your income and that of the family member in order to assess how much they will loan you
  • By using yours and your family member’s income, you may be able to borrow a larger mortgage than you would on your own
  • With a JBSP mortgage the stamp duty is usually only paid by the proprietor

Not all lenders deal with these types of mortgages. With a more complicated application and also needing to use more specialist lenders, we would advise you speak to a mortgage broker like Your Mortgage Expert.

We understand how these types of mortgages work and can advise you on how to apply for one.
