We have been researching websites like RateCity and Finder where they saw home loan rates can be as low as 3.44%. Our rate is 3.99% and we contacted our broker and they said because we have only had the loan for a year we shouldn’t refinance. They said we could refinance but it would cost them money if we did and we would have to pay the fees on their behalf. Is this normal for brokers?

Hi, I would like to ask a question about buying a franchise/licence. The parent company is not calling it a franchise (just a licence) but the agreement looks and feels like a franchise and we have to commit to KPI’s and a 3 year term. If it is just a licence agreement does that mean the parent company is required to pay tax on our behalf or is that our responsibility – thank you?

Hi,

I have purchased a property in 2010 and used my first home buyers grant. Now, my partner (never had a property under his name) and I are thinking of buying a apartment as an investment property together. What I would like to know is

1. In future, if my partner can afford to buy a property purely only with his name on the title and use as his primary residence, will he be entitled to the first home buyers grant?

2. What happens if both our name with be on the loan just not both name on the title.

Hope someone can help me out!

Regards,

Hello everyone. I'm a first homebuyer looking into buying an apartment before this year ends. I have requested a section 32 and contract of sale from the vendors of 2 apartments. I'm more interested with the 2-BR unit and would like to put an offer (although it is below the selling price). Do I need a conveyancer to review both contracts for the 2 apartments, or is it OK to put an informal offer for the first one, and if the vendor agrees, I'd have a conveyancer review the contract before I formally sign it?

Hi,
We have a family business and the accountant has it set up that my income is $40k more than my wife’s. We are looking to buy an investment property and also been advised to buy the property in my wife’s name. Does this sound like good advice and can we get a loan if the loan by using my wife’s name and will they look at both our income and the business profits?

There’s a lot of noise coming out of the Banking Royal Commission about mortgage brokers, the commissions they receive and their ongoing trailing income.

We’d like to ask, if as some are suggesting the mortgage broker model is changed to pay for service and abandoning trailing income what impact would it have on consumers in terms of home loan competition, interest rates, service levels, convenience and the cost for them to obtain a home loan ?

What impact would it have on the overall home loan industry?
