    deposit from father in law 14th Jun 17 at 4:35 PM
    hi,


    im in a situation where my future father in law wants to gift us the deposit required for our first home, my partner has bad credit history with defaults etc so were planning on not making a joint mortgage application. my credit history is perfect and I earn around 36k a year with no debt, should this be a problem using a deposit from my father in law although were not married yet??


    hes willing to sign all the papers etc required to show this is totally a gift and he doesn't want repaying,


    also he is my daughters grandparent??


    any help would be much appreciated..


    thankyou

    Yes. It will be an issue for many lenders.

    Get independent broker advice to ensure you don't approach the wrong ones.

    Most lenders will accept gifted deposits from blood relatives of the applicant only.

    You need to seek independent broker advice as suggested earlier.

    No credit history does not equal good credit history.
