Is home ownership for single parent families out of reach?
Host: Clare Beardmore - Head of Digital Transformation & Operations, Legal & General Mortgage Club
About this talk
There are 2.9 million single parent families in the UK representing nearly 15% of all families*
Making sure children grow up in a secure home is an important consideration for any parent, but if you’re a single parent, parental responsibilities and relaying on one income/benefits, can often make either staying in your home after separation/divorce/bereavement or getting on the housing ladder out of reach.
The objective of this webinar is raise awareness amongst our industry of this underserved customer group, looking at:
• Dispelling some of the myths and stereotypes around single parent families
• The challenges single parent families often face with getting a mortgage
• Whether existing first-time buyer products consider or meet the needs of single parent families
Finishing off with a discussion on what more could be done by our industry to help single parent families either remain as or become homeowners.
