Lenders Wanted

NSW, $450K, Investment, Purchase, Full-doc, 90% LVR

Posted on 15/08/2013 2:53:02 PM

Client is looking to purchase off the plan with a extended settlement period of 18-24 months. I know St George allow 17 month settlement and CBA are 18 months. Any that do longer?

Also this will be an LMI loan (90%), how long is conditional approval for, before the application has to be re-submitted?

    More good advice... thanks Lou! Sounds like a great way to minimise risk. I guess there will still be valuation risk once the construction is complete and settlement is imminent, but your suggestion appears to reduce the other risks. Thanks for your input.

    Hey AB... I like Brado's comments (and I will be looking over ANZ's policy myself - thanks!). For this loan, I would be looking at having a (fully assessed) pre-approval to start with... extending that when it gets close to the 90days expiry, and then getting it converted to a full approval when the sunset clause is within the bank's time frame (12-18 months as you mentioned earlier). In this way you have "the client" approved and minimise the time-risk and policy changes that may happen.

    Thanks for the advice, Brado, much appreciated. I will check out ANZ.

    off the plan.. its risky! but can be awesome...

    I always tell my clients: no new debts; keep saving; don't change jobs; don't get a default...and then we should be fine, as long as the valuer does his part.

    ANZ also have a pretty good long term approval product for off the plan.

    Thanks Brado. I understand that the client will need to provide updated payslips, etc at time of settlement, that's not a problem. My query is about maximising the chance of re-approval at settlement time. I assume valuation issues are a risk. Is change of bank policy also a risk with extended settlement periods? Anything else to be aware of re finance for off the plan purchases?

    realistically, under NCCP, approval cant stand for more than 90 days. Are you trying to achieve unconditional approval ? or do you want to ensure the client will gain approval come settlement time?
