Income Boost

An Income Boost, also known as Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor (JBSP) mortgage, is a way of adding some or all of a family member or friend's income to a mortgage to increase your max borrowing. With a loved one added as a guarantor, you can increase your affordability to afford your home on your own.

Deposit Boost

This involves two separate mortgages. The first is taken out by your family member or friend (the Booster) on their property to release money, which is then gifted to you to help you buy out your ex. The second is the new mortgage needed for your home, with you as sole owner.

Savings as Security

If you have a family member who wants to help and has cash savings, instead of gifting you it in a lump sum they could place them in a special savings account. This is used as security by the lender, which increases your affordability.

Dynamic Income Boost

Add some or all of a family member’s earnings to your total income to increase your affordability. They can choose to build up an equity stake by contributing to the repayments, but won’t own your home.

Deposit Loan

Increase the amount of equity you hold in your home, with a Deposit Loan from a loved one. They'll benefit by owning a percentage of your property, while you can remortgage with a larger downpayment

Professional Mortgages

If you work in a professional field, such as a nurse, doctor or solicitor, you could be eligible to borrow up to 5.5x your income. By borrowing more, you can boost your affordability to afford your home on your own.
