Does anyone have any experience with getting mortgages with their siblings? Just floating this as an idea, to assess the feasibility &/or lunacy: Me: 40, single, can get a mortgage on a property up to £250k, which buys you the square root of eff all around here (Cambridge). Hence I'm considering asking my sibling for help... Sibling: 44, separated, 2 kids, owns property (valued currently at £550k, although I don't know how much equity / mortgage left to pay there is). Sibling earns a healthy whack, about double what I do. I saw that Barclays does a 'Family Affordability Plan' and this got me thinking down this road. Does this sound like a silly idea? Other than the fact that we may be on the precipice of a monumental housing crash that is.
