YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

Buying a new home with the help of a family member?

If you’re hoping to get on to the property ladder and have a family member willing to help, our Family Assist Mortgage may be for you! With this product, the mortgage would be in your name, but your family member would also benefit as their cash deposit would be held securely in the Credit Union earning an annual dividend. Please note you and your family member must be members of the Credit Union or eligible to join.

The product allows your family members to act as a guarantor for the mortgage deposit, on your behalf. This mortgage is available with just a 5% cash deposit provided by your family member. They would be required to pledge the funds to the Credit Union in order to cover the guaranteed liability.

For example, if the property was £250,000, they could guarantee a minimum deposit of £12,500. These funds would be placed into the Credit Union’s Security Account, and access to the funds would become locked until you have repaid enough of the outstanding mortgage balance to cover the deposit. At this point, the secured funds would be released back to your family member as the guarantor.

Mortgages with your Credit Union

All mortgage applications are individually assessed by one of our in house Mortgage Advisers. Decisions are based on your ability to repay and not solely on your credit score. We don’t charge any application or arrangement fees on any of our mortgage products and you can repay your mortgage through payroll deduction (available in 28 forces) making mortgage repayments effortless.

When you begin the mortgage process with No1 CopperPot, we allocate a personal Mortgage Adviser to you, who will take you through the entire process from start to finish. We deal with all mortgage applications in-house, so if you have any questions you can contact us and we will be happy to assist.
