Property Share can help first-time home buyers and investors get into the property market sooner.
What is Property Share?
Want to share your property costs with someone else? Property Share allows you to split the cost of buying a home with family and friends, while retaining individual control of your finances.
All Property Share borrowers must be owners of the property and guarantee each other’s home loan(s) as security. A maximum of two home loan applications per security is allowed, but each application may have multiple borrowers or multiple loan products (such as a split loan).
Property Share cannot be used for business purposes, bridging loans, land purchase or building and construction loans.
