Hi Theo,

There are limited option for a non direct family member gifting a deposit, although it is not impossible

The level and reason for the deposit gift will be critical as to what options you may have….

It would be a smaller deposit 5k approximately, just a best friend who wants to help me move from high cost private renting. I am open to shared ownership if need be and I did qualify for help to buy.

Then at 5% deposit, you are likely to be on the right track with either Help to buy on a new build or indeed a shared ownership property.

The deposit source is likely to be a bigger barrier than the Debt Management Plan, although a combination of the 2 does make this tricky…

Hope this helps
