First Home Buyers Program 

Get into your own place or get your spare room back! Either way we can help. 

BDCU Alliance Bank has a home loan solution that allows you to get into the property market now and at the same time avoid expensive mortgage insurance costs.

At BDCU Alliance Bank we recognise that family members often want to help out their children with their first home loan and keep control of the amount they guarantee.
With the BDCU Alliance Bank Family Start Home Loan your relatives can do just that, help you get into your first home sooner and control how much security they pledge to your loan.
 
What’s more, the NSW Government has made it easier through some great initiatives and we can help you through the process.
 
First time buyers in NSW can take advantage of the following*
  • No stamp duty on all homes up to $650K
  • $10,000 Grant for purchasers of new properties worth up to $600K
  • $10,000 First Home Builder Grants available
  • No insurance duty on lenders’ mortgage insurance

How does it work? 

You find a home you would like to buy and the shortfall in the deposit you need can be made up by using equity (value) in your parents’ home. The best part is your parents control how much equity they provide for security, and your loan can be set up to pay that amount off first.
This can mean avoiding paying lenders’ mortgage insurance (which can be in excess of $10,000) and waiting an extended period to get into the property market.
Unlike traditional third party guarantees, the family member can determine an amount that they would like to provide as guarantee – somewhere in the range of 0 to 20% value of the home being purchased.
 
By setting the amount that the family member would like to guarantee they are in control of their equity and can request a loan review at any time to see if their security is still required.
 
The Family Start Home Loan is a structure that allows members to guarantee other family members on a BDCU Alliance Bank home loan.
