Purchasing a property with low docs
Low Doc Loans are available to self-employed applicants who are looking to purchase a property or build. With a low doc loan you can apply for a loan without having to provide Tax Returns. If you can demonstrate that your business is profitable then a low doc loan could be just what you’re looking for.
What documents will I need?
Depending on the lender and your circumstances you will be requested to prove your usual income using one or more of the following documents:
- Self-verification of income via an Income Declaration form
- Recent Business Activity Statements (BAS) (usually 6 – 12 months)
- An Accountant's Letter
- 3 - 6 months Business Bank Statements
- Profit and Loss Report from an accounting software
You will also be required to provide evidence of your ABN, registered business name and GST registration.
How much deposit will I need?
There is a larger deposit requirement for low doc applications which means you will usually need a minimum 20% deposit for a purchase although this can vary and will depend on your circumstances.
The interest rates, fees and charges for a Low Doc Loan can sometimes be similar to a Standard full doc home loan however you may still be required to pay LMI (lenders mortgage insurance) or a lender risk fee in some circumstances.
