A gift of equity is a transfer of ownership of a property to a family member or someone with whom the seller has had a previous relationship, at a price below or at the current market value. The difference between the actual sales price and what is owed on the home is called the gift of equity. Most lenders allow the gift to count as a down payment on the home.

A FHA gift of equity requires a gift of equity letter that is signed by both the seller and the buyer. For the purpose of obtaining a mortgage a gift of equity is treated as a purchase transaction.

A sales contract will be needed.
