    I disagree because you cannot know that for certain.  Let’s assume it genuinely was a gift and the declaration was honest and true at the time.  Now imagine that the parent’s circumstances somehow changed.  Are you seriously suggesting that the OP would not be able to ‘help out’ their parents without committing mortgage fraud?
    It wasn't genuinely a gift though, no point making up what ifs.  Its done anyway, as long as they keep paying the mortgage the lender won't check on it.
