Low Doc Home Loans Broker

Low Doc Home Loans, what are they? To put it simply, there are times when standard forms of income verification don’t tell the full story, and in these instances, a Low Doc loan could be the answer. Low Doc assessments allow applicants to prove their income using more current forms of verification, such as recent BAS statements, Account statements, and/or Accountant’s letters.

Our Low Doc Home Loan Promise

Since Low Doc Loans typically come with a higher price tag than other ‘Fully Assessed’ home loan products, we’ll want to look at the whole picture to make sure we recommend the cheapest product available. Lenders that offer a Low Doc Loan solution will tier their interest rates and fee structures based on their own unique risk profiling guidelines. It’s our job to find you the lender, product, and risk profile with the cheapest price tag and best ongoing terms. In some cases, there may be more suitable product available through a business lending channel which offers a cheaper product, and accepts interim financial statements, or even business projections to approve your loan. Our finance professionals are specialists in the Self-Employed lending space. One way or another, we’ve got you covered.

Sunshine Coast Brokers That Care About Your Financial Success

Due to the higher cost associated with Low Doc Loans, these products are generally considered to be a ‘Band Aid’ solution, and it’s likely you’ll want to re-finance your loan to a cheaper product as soon as your standard income verification types become ‘assessable’. This may require waiting to finish out your current year of trading, or even waiting for the sale of a property. Either way, we’ll diarise these milestones and connect with you when it’s time to revisit. We don’t want our clients to pay any more interest than they need to for any longer than they must.

Documents To Provide To Your Lenders

Despite what the name of the product suggests, Low Doc lenders will still need to verify your income, expenses, assets, and liabilities. However, verification of this information is generally a much simpler process.

  • Identification: 100 points of ID, including a passport or driver’s license, Medicare card, and bank cards. Low doc lenders will often want copies of these to be certified by a JP or C.Dec. We can help you with this.
  • Liabilities: These can often be verified from your credit file and bank and/or bank statements. In most cases, statements for un-related loans are not required.
  • Income: Low doc lenders are usually happy to accept a combination of 2 of the following:
    • Self-declaration of income
    • Accountant’s letter
    • BAS statements
    • 6 months of PAYG payslips
  • Expenses: You’ll need to declare your monthly living expenses. Statements may or may not be required to verify your current monthly expenditure.
  • Contract of sale or proof of ownership of your existing property.

Since income verification varies considerably between Low Doc lenders, we’ll talk you through the differences between each and may make a recommendation based on the forms of verification you have access to.

The Mortgage Brokering Process for Low Doc Loans

  • Initial Chat: We’ll spend some time with you to discover your current and future needs and objectives, and find out a little about your business structure, forms of income, assets, and liabilities.
  • Request Documentation: Next, we’ll send you a checklist with a list of items we’ll need to look for the most suitable product, compare the options.
  • Discuss our findings and make a Recommendation: In our next appointment will discuss our findings as well as the pros and cons of the most suitable options. Based on your needs and objectives, we’ll make a recommendation for the product that most suits your needs.
  • Submit for approval: Once you’re happy that the recommended product meets your needs, we’ll prepare some documents for you to sign, submit your application to the lender, and manage the application through to approval.
  • Settlement: Whether your application is for the purchase of a property, re-finance, or even a loan increase to access cash for another purpose, we’ll liaise with your solicitor and/or lender to make sure settlement occurs on time and in line with the numbers we applied for.

Low Doc Loan Support For Self-Employed Borrowers

  • As your equity grows and your ‘Risk Profile’ becomes stronger, we’ll approach the lender to review your interest rates and press them to give you a better deal.
  • At some stage, it will be time to re-view your lending options to see if there’s a cheaper option. We’ll check in with you regularly to keep you in the loop on ongoing lending requirements so that you can set yourselves some goals and targets to qualify for a cheaper product ASAP.

How Can Low Doc Home Loans Help Business Growth?

A Low Doc loan could mean the difference between buying a property today, or waiting months (or years) to qualify for lending under full a verification process. Depending on your timing, the exposure to the property market (or lack thereof) could be a lucrative or costly result.


Why Use A Broker When Securing Low Doc Loans Products?

Many Low Doc lenders distribute their products solely through the Broker Channel. This means that their products are not available through direct application. Profiling guidelines through these lenders are also either unavailable to the public or difficult to find. Your mortgage broker will compare the risk profiles and associated rates/fees, according to your individual situation and position, to make sure you get the best deal.

Mellissa Lambert

We’ve used the expertise of Luke, Shayna and the Loanright team on two separate occasions now, I must say their service is second to none and they get the job done In record time. No question was too silly, they always have time for us. Would use again and recommend in a heart beat to anyone else needing brokerage assistance. Many thanks.

Nicholas Hopkins

Luke and his fantastic team will take care of everything, An honourable mention to Deb Moss for meeting me at 6 am at a BP station to sign docs on here day off to enable me to get the house I had been chasing for months. Ledgends. Have dealt with Luke and his team before and will use them again and again their service is second to none.

Alyshia Judd

I had a fantastic experience with Alicia. Super friendly, warm and knowledgeable 10/10.

Daniel O’Dea

Brett and Alicia came highly recommended from a work colleague. I had previously gone through a pre approval process with another broker (which will remain unnamed). The difference was night and day. Being a first home buyer I had no idea what I was doing. Both Brett and Alicia were so accomodating and answered all my silly questions and walked me through EVERYTHING step by step. We had my pre approval through in about a quarter of the time of the last brokers!! Once I found the home I wanted to buy it was literally the easiest thing in the world. They will be getting all my business.

Cassie McKee

Luke and Shayna were awesome during the process of us buying our first home. So many things can be confusing during the process for first time and they were always happy to talk us through things no matter how small. Held our hand through the process and were able to get us into our first home. Very glad we found them. Highly recommend Loanright

Adrian Chrisanthou

Thanks so much Brett for your professionalism and tenacity in regards to getting my deal done with loanright. I look forward doing business with you in the future as I found the experience seemless and timely. Keep up the great work Brett and team

Thea Hambuechen

It has been a pleasure dealing with Luke and his team. During the process Alicia and Shayna have been very informative and kept in contact regularly to make sure we knew what was happening every step of the way! We will definitely be using Loanright in the future and highly recommend. Thank you again for helping us purchase our first home.

Tim McGary

OMG!! These guys are next level good. They have just settled our new home loan and we had another guy that took 4 weeks and did nothing. We then called these guys after a friend said they were amazing. They got us a home loan approved from start to finish in 35 days and I have just been released from a personal bankruptcy a few months back. We were unconditional on our purchase contract by the time we met these guys so they had to do everything perfectly and super quick. They did it with ease and the customer service and follow up and friendly attitude was totally incredible. I couldn’t recommend them anymore if I tried.

Ashley Pearce

Luke and the team helped us with a refinance and we couldn’t be happier with the result. I would highly recommend the Loanright team to anyone.

Tegan Shingles

Sam & Shayna have been fantastic throughout my whole processing of purchasing my new home. No question went unanswered and both have always been a pleasure to talk to.

Low Doc Loan FAQs

How long do I need to be trading before I can apply for a low doc loan?

The answer to this typically ranges between 1-2 years, however with continuation in the same industry some lenders will consider less.

Can I get a low doc loan for a commercial property?

Yes, and some major banks will do this with very competitive rates. The assessment requirements will depend on your deposit or equity, as well as any rent the commercial property generates.

What is a Low Doc Loan?

A Low Doc Loan is a loan product that is assessed using minimal verification of income and financial records.

How do interest rates on Low Doc Home Loans compare to Standard Home Loans

Since less verification is required to assess a Low Doc Loan, the risk is much higher for the lender. In turn, the lender may charge a higher interest rate to mitigate this risk. Your mortgage broker will look for lenders and products where your position meets the lowest risk grades and interest rates.

Are there any exit costs on Low Doc Loans

In some cases yes. But this will be different between lenders. Some may charge a higher interest rate, with little to no early termination fees, while others may offer a competitive interest rate, but charge an exit fee if you are to terminate your loan within the first two or so years.

How much deposit do I need for a Low Doc Loan

LVR or (Loan to value ratio) limits will vary between lenders, and some may even charge a risk fee if your LVR is higher than 70%. Ideally you’ll want a 20% deposit, however, there are some that will require less. Ultimately, the lower the LVR and the bigger the deposit, the cheaper your loan is likely to be.
