Dynamic Ownership is a joint mortgage that allows you and up to five other buyers to purchase a property together. It can be a good solution for people wanting to buy with friends or siblings.
Similar to a tenants in common mortgage, each owner’s equity is separate. However with this scheme, all owners can dynamically track their deposit or repayment contributions over time. This ensures that everything is fair and clear when it comes to selling the property.
All mortgages have risks and benefits. Here are some key things you should know before applying for a Dynamic Ownership mortgage.
Get on the ladder sooner
On average it takes 8 years to save up for a deposit. By pooling your savings together with friends or siblings, you can put down a larger deposit and get on the ladder quicker.
Increase your buying budget
With more people on the mortgage application, your total income will be higher. This will likely mean lenders will be more willing to let you borrow more for a mortgage, boosting your buying budget.
You have control over your share
As each co-owner has individual equity in the home, they have full control over their portion. They can choose to sell up, or pass it to others in their will, without forcing the other owner(s) to do the same - as long as the remaining owners can afford the mortgage without you.
Build up individual equity, instead of renting
If you and your friends or siblings are currently renting, buying together can allow you to build up equity in a home you co- own. So down the line, you’ll have built up your own property wealth, instead of paying your landlord’s mortgage.
Both first time buyers and home movers are eligible
Unlike some buying schemes, Dynamic Ownership can be used by both first time and second time buyers.
Everyone on the mortgage is liable for debt
While not every co-owner needs to contribute to the monthly repayments, all applicants are jointly liable for the mortgage. So if you default, all co-owners will be legally responsible for the payments.
Think carefully about who you buy with
Buying a home is a huge responsibility, and so it’s important that you trust the people you’re buying with. You’ll become financially linked, meaning any changes to their credit report will impact you.
Each owner will go through affordability checks
All applicants will go through a mortgage affordability assessment to ensure they can afford the mortgage. This includes providing proof of income, identification and a credit check.
Applicants’ ages impact their eligibility
Applicants’ maximum age at the end of the mortgage has to be typically between 75-85 years old. This means if your co- owners are over the age of 60, monthly repayments can become unaffordable.
