Questions we hear from Boosters
Do I have to pay extra taxes, like second home Stamp Duty?
No. Because you aren’t on the property deeds, you won’t be hit with a hefty tax bill. The Booster product helps First-Time Buyers and homeowners buy together.
Do I have to make mortgage payments?
You choose whether to contribute to mortgage payments or simply be on standby. But you’re responsible for repayments, just like any other borrower on the mortgage.
Questions we hear from BUYERS
What does having a Home Booster mean for my Stamp Duty bill?
Boosters don’t go on the property deeds, so you only pay the Stamp Duty you owe, which is 0% up to £500,000 at the moment!
Can I remove a Booster later on?
Yes! Boosters are there to get you started, not follow you through the mortgage term. Remove them once you’ve paid down your mortgage loan sufficiently or get a pay rise.
