Research by the bank reveals that 72 per cent of graduate homeowners have entered into joint
Amanda Docherty, communications manager for the bank, said: "Nobody wants to end up in a situation where they find it extremely difficult to share a home with someone they no longer get on with but can't afford to do anything about it."
She advised that people buying a house with someone else should always have an "exit route" in place should the arrangement turn sour.
The trend of buying a house with someone is not new, she added, but explaining that more people are buying together out of wedlock and with friends and family.
According to the bank, a graduate first-time buyer must put an average deposit down of £16,666 for a house which costs £122,045.
