Hi, We have been discussing with our parent the need for them to move to a newer, lower maintance house. We also want to get into the property market and are struggling to afford to buy where we like. Which got us to thinking is there a way that we could do this together. They pay for 50% of the purchase price and we buy the other 50% as an investment, it would give them some extra cash from the sale of there property and security. They would need to pay us "rent" as well to help cover our loan as the investment piece. Has anyone got experience in this type of thing or does it just not work. There are heaps of pros and cons to this I understand that, just like to hook up with some people that has had some experience in doing this.
