A person who cosigns on a mortgage to help you borrow a larger amount, but will not have ownership or reside in the property.

Who can be an income booster?

A family member can be an income booster such as parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, or uncles.

Benefits of an income booster

  • Afford more – Include an income booster on your mortgage to increase your purchasing power and become a homeowner sooner. Income boosters can assist with monthly payments and build equity in the property, or they can be on standby if desired.

  • Keep first-time buyer benefits – Using an income booster does not result in higher stamp duty fees.

  • For a good time, not a long time – When you are ready, remove your booster and manage the mortgage on your own with the “ejector seat” option. Watch a video on Gen H ejector seat explained.

How an income booster works

  1. Find out how much you could afford with an income booster.

  2. Apply for a Generation Home mortgage with up to five other buyers and income boosters (with a maximum of four buyers). You can apply together as a group.

  3. Set your monthly payments. Income boosters can contribute and accumulate property equity or remain on standby if desired.

  4. Your income booster will be jointly responsible for the mortgage, so if you are unable to make payments, your booster will assist.

Increase your purchasing power and get your foot on the property ladder sooner by using a deposit booster.

  • Deposit loan – An interest-free loan, from the individual to you, which can be repaid at a later date in a simple and secure manner.

  • Equity loan – An investment in your property that fluctuates in value along with your home. The individual can withdraw their investment when it is convenient for both parties (subject to certain criteria).

  • Gift – Your income booster can also choose to provide the deposit as a gift, or convert the loan into a gift at a later time.

What is an deposit booster?

A deposit booster is when you get someone you know like a friend or family member to link their savings with your deposit. It is like a gifted deposit but works in a slightly different way.

Why deposit boost?

Many first-time homebuyers receive assistance with their deposit, and with traditional lenders, the only option is to receive a gift. However, gifters must pledge that they do not expect to be repaid, which can be uncomfortable.

With the Gen H deposit booster, there are more options available. Income boosters can often provide more support because they will receive back some money later. Additionally, parents can use the same funds to help multiple children.

Who can be an deposit booster?

Someone you know and trust who wants to assist with your deposit through various means.

How many deposit boosters can  I have?

How many boosters you have is up to you – there’s no maximum.

How an income booster works

  1. Apply for your Generation Home mortgage.

  2. Discuss with your income booster how they would like to provide their support. You can combine a deposit loan, equity loan, and gift in any combination.

  3. Gen H will establish a deposit booster agreement to make the arrangements official and ensure that everyone is protected.

  4. Easily manage deposit loan repayments through your online dashboard. Income boosters who have provided an equity loan can view the current value of their investment in the property.

Backed by a home agreement, dynamic ownership allows for fair and flexible sharing of property ownership.

  • Track your share – Own your home jointly with individual equity stakes, and track ownership dynamically.

  • Keep it safe – An investment in your property that fluctuates in value along with your home. The individual can withdraw their investment when it is convenient for both parties (subject to certain criteria).

  • Keep it fair – Your home agreement keeps it safe and fair. Know what’s yours and what’s theirs.

What is equity?

Equity is the portion of your home that you own outright, calculated as the property value minus the remaining balance on your mortgage.

How dynamic ownership works

  1. Apply for your Generation Home mortgage. You and a max of 5 other people can buy together.

  2. Gen H will ask how you would like to jointly own the property. Selecting dynamic ownership allows you to accumulate individual equity stakes.

  3. Gen H will write up your home agreement, which is a legal document that records each person’s contributions and ownership share of the property.

  4. If you choose an income booster – Your home agreement allows the income booster to make payments to accumulate equity in the property.
