Bank of Mum and Dad funds one in two house purchases among under-35s 法律 & General research reveals

One in every two first-time buyers aged under 35 is receiving financial support from the Bank of Mum and Dad, new research from 法律 & General and Cebr has revealed. More than half (56%) of those under the age of 35 received a financial gift to help them step onto the housing ladder. In a further sign that ‘BoMaD’ is playing an ever-present role in the housing market, 71% of these new homeowners say they would not have been likely to buy without financial support from family or friends. Instead, they would have to delay their housing plans by four years on average.

  • New data from 法律 & General shows that 56% of first-time buyers aged under 35 received financial support from the Bank of Mum and Dad to help them step on the housing ladder
  • 几乎这些新业主的四分之三(71%)不会一直倾向于购买不从家人或朋友的财政援助
  • 但“bomad”帮助年长的买家,太 - 妈妈和爸爸的银行今年将借给£2.14bn到35岁以上

The research follows earlier findings from 法律 & General, which showed that the Bank of Mum and Dad is stepping in to support loved ones as the economic impact of COVID-19 takes hold. A third (33%) of all people looking to buy in the next five years plan on getting financial help from family or friends.

在2020年,bomad“贷款人”将在35岁以下的那些年龄之间的73160名购买房产,这只是从2019事务级别(79631)下降了8%,尽管更广泛的购买房产Q2 2020中近一半倒塌发挥积极作用。 [1]法律 & General research also shows that the Bank of Mum and Dad is lending on average £19,000 to first-time buyers under the age of 35, with 21% of respondents in this age bracket saying they received more than £30,000. In total in 2020, the under 35s will receive £1.36bn in BoMaD contributions, helping them to purchase £18.11bn worth of property. However, not all first-time buyers will receive the funding as a gift, with 30% expected to pay at least some of it back.
