Enabling the Australian dream of home ownership for the next generation


With Australia's soaring capital city property prices, the family home is a very valuable asset.

Many Mums & Dads are open to helping their adult children onto the property ladder.

The question is ... how?

Raiding savings or superannuation puts a strain on retirement finances. 

Co-operty can help parents to access the equity in the family home without needing to downsize or take on debt.

At the same time, Co-operty can help kidults to be accountable and build their credit file. 

Best of all, the family home doesn't need to be sold or reverse mortgaged.

This idea is very interesting. Trying to support our kids in home ownership a few years ago I set up the same arrangement for them with the bank. I thought it was much better than lending them money and meant they had financial responsibility for their half of the loan. It was difficult to set up and, when I asked the bank afterwards why they did not offer this service more generally, they could not answer. Well done!
