The Bank of Mum & Dad has, of course, always existed. Many of today’s Mums and Dads were helped by their own parents to get their educational qualifications, their first car and a first home. It’s what families do.

However the last 20 years has seen a perfect financial storm brewing for the next generation. The cost of further education, entertainment, transport and, in particular, accommodation and property has increased to a whole new level, creating ‘Generation Rent’ and squeezing their finances and those of their parents.

If you have become the next generation of the Bank of Mum and Dad then it is likely at some point you are or will be considering ways to help your children get on or climb the property ladder. As we know, there are many areas of the country where this is a very expensive commitment. It is vital therefore that legal advice is sought before any action is undertaken. Furthermore it is important to ensure that any assistance you give does not expose you or your family to any unnecessary risks or issues.

Our specialist team is dedicated to answering any practical, legal and taxation questions (and those your children may have) as you help to get the next generation of the family progress in life.

As a multi-disciplined legal practice, Wellers is able to bring together legal expertise on property law, family law and private client services such as Wills and trusts and also company law where business finances may be involved. We combine these areas of knowledge to provide the answers and assistance you are seeking.
