We have had some awesome developments in the world of finance recently, so take a quick peek to see if one may suit you
First Home Loan Deposit Scheme – Another 20,000 places released for Construction and Established Homes from 1/7/2021.
There will be 10,000 places for New Builds, and 10,000 places for established homes. Only selected lenders who participate in the scheme will be eligible for the schemes.
Get into your home loan with 5% Deposit – let the Government pay for your Mortgage Insurance. Sharp interest rates from 1.89% – please call to see if you qualify – Conditions Apply. Please note that some construction interest rates may be slightly higher due to the requirements for progress payments.
SINGLE PARENT FAMILIES – FAMILY GUARANTEE SCHEME
The Family Guarantee Scheme for single parent families will allow families to enter or re-enter the property market with as little as 2% Deposit. These places are available from 1/7/2021 and only available through certain lenders. You’ll need to have sufficient income to cover the loan, so the normal assessment process is taken into account, eg income, debts, dependants and credit file. The good news is that we have lenders who will accept the Single Parent Benefit, Family Tax Benefit, Carers Allowance (restricted lenders) and Child Support plus your wages.
If you are trying to buy your ex out, this scheme may also assist especially if you have very little in the way of equity in your home.
First Home Owners, construction loans only. This payment can be paid in addition to the above payments. Call us to discuss. Some lenders will allow you to use towards your deposit, while other lenders need you to receive your grant through your own bank account at slab stage.
SEPARATED BUT NO PROPERTY SETTLEMENT
This can be tricky, as sometimes the ex is not in a position to refinance the home loan. Or there may not be enough equity in the home to refinance. We do have lenders who can assist with reducing these expenses, very limited lenders. Please call us on 0403 211 361 to discuss.
Are you thinking about buying a home?
There are a few things we need to check to make sure it is smooth sailing for your purchase. Your income will be just as important as your credit file. In our business, we do all the hard work for you before applying for a home loan, so we can take care of all the possible speed bumps.
Worried about a default from years ago?
Please let us know, so we can provide a solution for you. We do provide Debt Consolidation and it can be a straight forward process when we sit down and look at your past and current financial history.
We’ve had some success with helping clients remove the defaults from their credit file which has been very exciting for the clients, as they can now make plans, create goals and move forward. This is a case by case situation. We do have lenders who will accept unpaid defaults, paid defaults, court judgements as well.
Some lenders will allow your default, whether paid or unpaid. It comes down to your individual situation.
We have a FAQ section that may help answer some of your questions

Over 50’s Home Loans
We have some commonsense lenders who can help you qualify for a 30 year term. The interest rates are very reasonable.
While some lenders consider age a problem not all lenders have this approach.
Factors which will affect your loan will be your deposit and your savings, and your superannuation balance. We will discuss your exit strategy with you at the time of our appointment so we have a clear idea about your financial goals.
Home Loans For Kiwis and Other Permanent Residents
We have some great loan solutions for those who are not Citizens. While the Government Schemes are not available, the FHOG $15,000 is available to you if you are a First Home Owner and intend to build.
You’ll still need to have a deposit for your home loan as little as 5% for your proposed purchase so get in touch with us to see if you qualify for a loan.
Self Employed with Company Debts
This can be a hard situation for those trying to buy their home, but it could be an option for you! We have some fantastic lenders who will exclude your business debts and help you on your home journey. Speak with us about your situation and we will see if we can find a solution for you.
If you are retired, or you are the child of a retired couple, and you’ve noticed your parents might be struggling with their day to day expenses this may be a solution for you. Many retirees have not had to the benefit of having superannuation, as it wasn’t compulsory in their time. This was a time when people would pay off their home loan as quick as they could (not a bad idea, saved them heaps in interest). As time goes on the Aged Pension doesn’t seem to keep pace with the cost of living for some people. There are restrictions on age, and the loan amount, so it is worth discussing with us to see if this is the right solution for you.
Adverse Credit Solutions
Especially after COVID, people may have been affected by job losses which can affect how you pay your debts. You may have fallen behind on your payments. This doesn’t need to be the end of your loan journey though.
Don’t be embarrassed, it happens to the best of us. Job losses, relationship breakdowns, multiple pregnancies, too much debt can put us in a tough spot.
Credit policies have extended over time to allow people to experience defaults and late payments – issues which may have caused you to suffer from a decline on your previous loan application.
So if you are looking for a home loan and need to advantage of our 18 years experience, and happy to deal with our optimistic approach to your loan, please get in touch.
