About National Counties Building Society Mortgages
From 1 December 2016, all new National Counties mortgages are only available under Family Building Society brand. The Family Building Society is a new addition to the long established National Counties Building Society. The society offers many different products for families, including a selection of savings accounts, insurance products and Family BS mortgages. The society can also offer advice on later life financial planning.
The Society’s main product is a mortgage where parents and grandparents can use their financial resources to reduce a first-time buyer’s monthly mortgage repayments. The society gives family members three ways of doing this. They can gift some money, deposit savings in a Family Building Society savings account as equity for the loan and earn interest, or deposit money in a savings account and use this to offset the mortgage.
The society also offers a low-start Family BS mortgage for customers who are starting again after a relationship breakdown. The mortgage is interest only for the first couple of years, which keeps repayments low to allow the homeowner get back on their feet.
The family mortgage is available to people with deposits as low as 5pc of a property's value, and allows parents to unlock cheaper borrowing costs for their children by offering part of the equity of their home or a cash deposit that will earn interest to part-guarantee a new mortgage. Parents and grandparents can also use their savings to offset mortgage interest.
With a National Counties Building Society’s family first Guarantor mortgage, a relative will be required to act as guarantor and provide security, the lender will then have a charge over the guarantor's home. With the National Counties Building Society mortgage the guarantor will be liable for any mortgage repayments that are defaulted on and this liability would be secured on their main residence. This provides the lender with the right to ensure the mortgage is paid with the guarantor's collateral.
