Real stories from our happy customers
Looking to help your child or loved one get a mortgage? We’re an award-winning mortgage broker on a mission to make home happen for a new generation. We help families support their children with buying a home, using a range of guarantor mortgages and budget boosting schemes.
Buying a home has never been harder. As house prices have skyrocketed, a new generation of homeowners have found themselves priced out of the property market. This means young adults are more reliant than ever family support, but not every family has cash to give. Tembo specialises in alternative ways to support first time buyers in purchasing their home, even without cash gifts from loved ones.
If your child has saved up some deposit but their maximum borrowing is too low to get a suitable mortgage, an Income Boost could be for you. Also known as a Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor mortgage, an Income Boost enable you to add your income to the buyer's mortgage to increase their affordability.
If your loved one is struggling to save a large enough deposit and you own a home, a Deposit Boost could be the answer. By unlocking money from your property in an affordable & ethical way, you could get them on the ladder faster and help them make big savings in interest.
If you do have cash savings, but feel uncertain about gifting your child money, a Savings as Security mortgage could be the solution. By depositing 10% of a property's value into an account held by the lender, your loved one can get a mortgage with no deposit saved up. After the end of a set term, you'll get your savings back, plus interest.
Like a standard Income Boost, you'll add your income to your child's mortgage application. But instead of being a guarantor, you'll co-own the property with them, contributing to the repayments in return for equity in the home. With a larger combined income, your loved one will be able to access lower interest rates or afford a more expensive property.
Saving up a deposit can often be the biggest barrier to homeownership. By contributing to your child's house deposit, they can get on the ladder sooner as well as access better mortgage rates. In return, you'll own a percentage of their home.
