Generally the gift must come from a close relative this means it needs to come from a parent or sibling i.e. mother, father brother or sister. We also are able to include deposits from extended family but the rules behind this are quiet rigid and restrictive. Gifted deposits from friends are also a subject that we have a great deal of expertise in.
The gift must be a ‘genuine gift’ requiring confirmation that is not to be repaid at any point or indeed a charge placed on the property.
