Family Home Guarantee

What is the Family Home Guarantee?

The Family Home Guarantee is a state initiative to help eligible single parents with dependants afford a home. Single parents can buy a house with only as little as a 2% deposit. This will allow them to get a loan without paying the lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI).
