Guarantor Home Loan

Some lenders call them “Family Pledge”, “Family Support” , “Family Equity”, “Family Guarantee”

Guarantor home loans are a form of credit agreement in which the borrower provides security in the form of a guarantor, typically parents or family member. The guarantor undertakes to make payments under the credit agreement if the borrower cannot pay.


Do you need a deposit with a guarantor mortgage?

No, some of them are available with a loan to value (LVR) of 100%. This means the mortgage covers the entire purchase price of your home and you do not need a deposit.


When can your guarantor be taken off the mortgage?

Lenders decide when this can happen, and you cannot remortgage to a deal without a guarantor until they let you. Most people are able to remove the guarantee somewhere between 2 and 5 years after they initially set up the loan.
