Notes

:All lenders have specific lending criteria which must be satisfied prior to loan approval

:Lenders may have different interest rates for larger loan amounts

:+LMI indicates lenders who will generally add the “once only” lender’s mortgage insurance premium to the basic loan amount

:Westpac, St George and CBA will lend 95%+LMI (up to 97% max.) ONLY to their own customers who have held required accounts for a minimum of 6 months

OTHER LENDING TIPS

  • 100% loans (plus costs) can be arranged for FIRST HOME BUYERS using the “parental guarantee” facility which several banks offer.
  • 100% loans (plus costs) are available for INVESTORS who have satisfactory equity in another property or who can use a “parental guarantee” facility, subject to meeting other bank criteria
  • instead of paying a 10% deposit, eligible buyers can use a DEPOSIT BOND / AUCTION GUARANTEE when purchasing, subject to acceptance by the vendor.
  • “Rapid Refinance” products are offered by numerous banks. Instead of waiting weeks to refinance your current loan, it may only take a few days from the time you sign loan documents. Conditions apply.
  • Several banks still offer “low doc” loans up to 60% of purchase price without the need for BAS statements or tax returns. One non-bank lender will go to 80% of purchase price. Conditions apply.
  • We can arrange for all your insurance quotes, including
    . house & contents
    . life insurance
    . trauma / disability insurance
    . income protection
  • Different lenders will approve different loan amounts in any given situation. Loan amounts may vary considerably from $300,000 up to $370,000 from one lender to another. We can advise which lenders will maximise your borrowing potential where this is a key requirement.
