When lenders assess your application they will want to see that you have Repayment Capacity. This means you are able to prove to the lender that you can easily meet the repayments for the proposed loan.

Each month you are required to prove that you have saved an amount equal to the expected repayments for the proposed loan. This amount can be a combination of saved funds and consistent rental payments. The lender will generally look back over 6 months of savings account statements and rental ledgers.

It is a good idea to have a separate savings account which you consistently add to each month. This will make it easier for you to monitor your savings and for the lender to identify Repayment Capacity has been met.

If you are renting, ensure rental payments are always made on time or in advance. A rental ledger from your letting agent and bank statements will be required from the lender to prove rental payments have been consistently met.

If you are thinking about purchasing a new home and would like more information regarding Repayment Capacity or have any other questions please contact us at Territory Loans.

The ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ mentality, which is growing in popularity, could be negatively impacting on your chance of owing your own home if this practice is not managed correctly.

Providers such as AfterPay and Zip Pay pay the merchant for the goods on behalf of the customer. The customer is able to obtain the goods straight away and then pay the debt off through instalments. Being able to obtain the goods straight away, instead of saving the money first, is a very tempting offer but can often leave customers with bigger debt problems if they are unable to meet repayment obligations.

When a Lender is assessing a customers’ savings and spending habits they may question the customers ability to meet loan repayments and manage their money if the customer is always buying on credit, especially if the repayments are not always made on time.

If you are looking at purchasing a new home it is important to manage your expenses well in advance so you can show the bank that you can save and manage your finances and therefore be able to meet home loan repayments.

If you are looking at buying a property and don’t know where to start come and see us at Territory Loans.

With interest rates being so low at the moment now is a good time to review your financial situation.

Are you paying high interest on an unsecured personal loan or credit cards? If you have enough equity in your home you may be able to roll them into your home loan to free up some more income and reduce the amount of interest you are paying. With credit card interest being as high as 20% and some even higher, it may make sense to roll this extra debt into your home loan as your home loan would have a much lower interest rate. This will reduce the amount of interest you are charged and in turn reduce your monthly repayments. Then if you have extra cash you can pay it towards your home loan to reduce the term of the loan and save on interest.

Call us or come in and see us and we will be happy to review your situation.

No. There is no charge to come and see us at any time. When you do a loan with us the bank pays us a commission but this does not mean you pay a higher rate or any additional costs. We are independent of any particular bank and we come up with the best option to suit your needs.
