Finding the best guarantor mortgage deal

A guarantor mortgage involves someone you know, usually a parent, guaranteeing your mortgage to your lender. This means they are essentially guaranteeing to repay what you owe if you’re unable to keep up with your payments.

In some cases they will have to offer their home or savings as security against the loan. They will be jointly liable with you for the debt and so should be fully aware of the legal implications and their responsibilities before agreeing to act as a guarantor.

Having someone prepared to guarantee your mortgage can be a huge help if your current income doesn’t quite meet a lender’s affordability requirements, or if you’re a first- time buyer and only have a small deposit.

Many lenders don’t accept applications backed by a guarantor, but other options are available, including allowing parents and children to take out a Joint Borrower Sole Proprietor mortgage. This means a parent or parents will be added to the mortgage, but not named on the title deeds of the property.

Whatever the reason you need a guarantor mortgage, L&C can help you find and apply for the right deal for you. Our expert advice can prove invaluable – and it won’t cost you a penny.

Guarantor mortgage FAQs

How does a guarantor mortgage work?

When you apply for a guarantor mortgage, someone (usually a family member) guarantees that they will be legally responsible for keeping up with the mortgage payments if you’re unable to do so.

Can I get a bigger mortgage with a guarantor?

Having a guarantor might enable you to get a slightly bigger mortgage than you’d be able to without one, although lenders will still want to see proof that you’ll both be able to afford the monthly repayments.

Who can be a guarantor on a mortgage?

To be a guarantor on a mortgage, you must be a homeowner. If you have a mortgage on your own property, you must be able to demonstrate you have enough income to cover repayments on your own property as well as on the property you are looking to guarantee.
