Home loans Self Employed

New home, home for sale

If you’re self-employed or own your own business, pulling together all of your financials can be a tough ask – but that shouldn’t stand in the way of your securing a home loan.

low doc mortgage loans are the perfect alternative for borrowers who struggle to come up with all financial documents for a loan application – an issue faced by many in Australia’s self-employed sector.

In common with all home loan applications, low doc mortgage borrowers are generally required to submit a standard loan application. However, instead of providing, say your PAYG statement, the self-employed low doc mortgage applicant would provide a verified Business Activity Statement when they apply for a low doc mortgage product.

Types of low doc mortgage loans available

Borrowers can apply for investment or owner-occupied home loans and even small business loans.

A loan-to-value ratio (LVR) of 80 per cent is considered to be standard with these products, though higher amounts may be available through some lenders.

Because of the added risk to the lender in providing this type of loan, be aware that special conditions may apply and low doc mortgage borrowers will likely pay a higher rate of interest than a comparable loan to a PAYG applicant.

Lenders mortgage insurance (LMI) commonly applies to borrowers with a deposit of less than 20 per cent of the property’s value. However, low doc mortgage borrowers may be required to take up LMI for loans exceeding 60 per cent of the home’s value.

The good news is that there is some choice in how you pay these fees.

Most lenders provide two options for paying mortgage insurance: an upfront payment, or cover the costs using your mortgage by increasing the value of your loan. The choice is yours!

It's official, going into business for myself

2005-09-01 13:55:51 by solopracticeadvice

I'm officially hanging a shingle. I'm scared crapless. I'm 29.
I own a home, have student loans, but no other consumer debt to speak of. I've got 33k saved, a 75k home equity line that I'd rather not touch, and I'm starting my business with a substantial guaranteed client base (and an income of somewhere between $7500-10000 per month).
What I'm curious about is: as a self-employed person, what is the best way for me to save for retirement, considering I'm already funding a ROTH? Also, I'm doing a collections practice, and getting a piece of whatever is collected. There are 45 million in outstanding collections
