There's a sign in Maidenhead trying to flog newbuild flats. They've been sitting there for years.

The sign says "Can mum and dad help?".

I kid you not.

Just thought I'd share :ph34r:

Was just doing a quick Google and came across this from Persimmon: http://www.persimmonhomes.com/promotions/parent-payback

"Mum and Dad help with your deposit. You pay them back with love and affection...."

"You choose your dream Persimmon home from one of our outstanding developments.

Mum and Dad provide up to 20% of the purchase price of your new home, which will form the deposit.

They earn 5% interest per annum on this investment for 2 years."

This is just the kind of dumb-ass financial jiggery pokery that got this country into the mess we are in. Not obvious what happens after the two years though.

Or what if the child has to buy/sell?

That's a good offer for the parents. An incentive to enslave their children to the banks with a mortgage!
