Joint borrower, sole proprietor

Do you have clients looking to borrow on a joint borrower, sole proprietor basis? We can help!

Meet Jasmine... 

Jasmine is 25 years old, employed and earns £30,000. She has a 25% deposit and found a property worth £250,000 that she’s interested in but can’t afford a mortgage of £187,500 on her sole income.  

Her dad, Michael, is 60 years old, employed and earns £65,000. He has a small residential mortgage balance joint with his wife of £55,000. 

What happened next? 

When assessing affordability, using Jasmine's income and a £150 loan pcm we discovered that: 

  • She can support a mortgage of £135,000 across a 35-year mortgage term 
  • Her dad has no debts other than his own mortgage balance and can support the remainder - being £52,500 across 10 years - taking him to his planned retirement age of 70. 

So, what about the mortgage? 

The mortgage is split in to two parts, meaning two separate mortgage payments but with a lower mortgage payment overall than if the total £187,500 borrowing was based entirely on the 10-year term.

The Newbury approach 

  • We can split the borrowing amount in two parts 
  • Affordability assessed on everyone’s income and commitments 
  • The term isn’t based solely on the elder applicants age, resulting in more comfortable mortgage payments  
  • For family-only relationships 

Don’t forget:

  • New instant chat service now available   
  • No credit scoring – all cases are assessed on individual merit  
  • Tailored underwriting with each case individually considered   
  • A dedicated BDM happy to help you on an individual basis
