It is not uncommon for children to receive financial support or a financial contribution from mum or dad (or even another family member) to get a foot in the property market. The “Bank of Mum and Dad” is now the fifth biggest home lender in Australia, with 29% of parents reaching into their wallets to help their children.
While many parents may assist their children with no intention of receiving repayment, a loan may still be the most prudent approach rather than a gift. Some of the key considerations for any parent are:
- Will I need this money in the future?
- What happens if my child defaults on their other loan/mortgage to another bank? Will I get my money back?
- What happens if my child goes through a relationship breakdown? Will their ex get the property or my money?
- Can I do the same for my other children and how does this affect my Will?
- What happens if this strains my relationship with my child or other family?
In this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of:
- Different approaches to documenting loans. This webinar will cover everything from “shaking on it”, to a simple “I O U” to “belts and braces” documentation.
- Common characteristics and terms found within loans, including approaches to repayment, interest rates and terms of default.
- The different levels of protection each approach affords the lender and steps a lender can take to maximise protection.
- The treatment of loans by the Family Court, where a party to the loan is going through a relationship breakdown.
- The treatment of loans in estate administration and/or estate litigation, where a party to the loan has passed away.
