Buying a Home - Don't Go it Alone

Even if you are buying a home together with your partner, it can sometimes seem like it’s you against the world!

What’s important to remember is that you needn’t feel isolated, and that others can help.

Parents, family members

Many of your relatives will probably have bought property themselves so they may have some great advice for you based on lessons they’ve learnt.

Sit them down and grill them! Find out why they made the decisions they did and what, if anything, they would have done differently.


You can actually buy property together with family or friends with what is called a tenants-in-common purchase.

With this sort of agreement, you can share the costs of buying property and the ongoing costs of mortgage repayments and property maintenance.

Mortgage expert
