Bank of Mum and Dad
If a family member is able to help you buy your first home, we'll thank them with a gift of £2,000.*
What is the scheme?
|Our Bank of Mum & Dad scheme means that if you're a first-time buyer and your parent or family member contributes 5% or more towards the price of your home**, they'll receive a thank you from us after completion.
How does it work?
1. To be eligible for the scheme you must be a first-time buyer, and a parent or family member must gift a minimum of 5% of the purchase price of your new home, with proof that they have done so.
2. Speak to the sales team at your chosen development to find out if you're able to use the scheme on your dream home.
3. If you are, they'll put you in touch with one of our recommended independent financial advisors to discuss your mortgage options.
4. After completion, we'll gift your family member £2,000 to say thank you for their help.
