Buying from Family

Posted on 2 April 2011 by tina


Can I buy my house from my husband?

Tina,

In theory yes, you can.  In practice it will depend on your personal income, credit history, the suitability of the property for mortgage purposes, the price and how much deposit you have to put down.

I believe you would benefit from speaking to one of our independent mortgage advisers. Please call on 0344 346 3672 and tell the consultant the date and title of your question. They will be able to look at your situation and advise you accordingly.
