Mortgage Success Story Donegal

Married Couple with Two Children Repay Family Members in Time

In Ireland alone, some lenders are requesting as much as 30% of the value of the property as a deposit. This can obviously pose a bit of a problem for buyers, especially those who are already stretched thin financially.

It’s not uncommon for first-time homebuyers to need a little help when it comes to coming up with a down payment. In fact, according to a recent study, nearly one-third of all ‘home buyers’ rely on some form of financial assistance from family or friends.


Mortgage Success Story Donegal

Married Couple Mortgage Case Study

When one married couple with two children came to our Letterkenny office for help, they had already borrowed money from family members in order to put down a deposit on their home four years ago.

Now, they wanted to re-mortgage in order to clear the existing mortgage and also repay the family members who had helped them. Unfortunately, their current mortgage provider would not lend to them.

However, after a one hour long chat, we were able to research the market and find a lender who would work with them, and we secured a mortgage that helped the clients pay back their family members. This was an important financial goal for them, and it gave them a great sense of pride and accomplishment when they were finally able to do it.
