Katherine Denham from City A.M. brings you an article to help parents decide whether they should gift or loan to their children?

Denham highlights the increasing number of young adults feeling the pinch on their wallets.

With the added burdens of student debt, high property prices and stagnant wages she sees more strain for these individuals to save. Overall, helping to make the idea of owning a home unfathomable for young people.

Denham highlights statistics from Resolution Foundation showing that millennials are the first generation to be worse off in comparison to their parents. So it shouldn’t come as a shock to see most of these individuals turning to the bank of Mum and Dad for financial support and help to get a foot on the property ladder.

Katherine Denham further goes on to discuss the differences between simply giving and lending to children, as well as joint purchasers.
