We want to buy a property to live $1.4M and have $600k deposit. Problem is we have two defaults on our record, both paid. We used to run our own business but my husband is back working fulltime as an employee and earns $90,000 a year and I work 3 days a week and earn $50,000. We have been told the only loan we can get is through a 2nd tier lender and the rate would be 4.8%. Is there a chance we could get a lower rate, under 4%?

Hi,
just a quick query. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My partner and I wish to purchase a home for 990k
We have 400k as a deposit and that is in the form of an apartment we have a sale contract on.
We have 25k in savings and we have an income of 6k nett a fortnight.

The issue is that I myself can not be part of the loan - I previously separated 4 yrs ago and had to take a part 9 debt agreement to continue on in life.

Without my income, my partners is 2k a fortnight,
however - for the past 12 months, one form of my income (superannuation) has been paid into her account and never touched (2k a fortnight). Will the bank be able to take this into account? What are her chances alone on that income to be approved?
I am asking because we would like to place our offer and don't want to be stuck in the dark.
Regards,
PartnerA1

Question on behalf of my mum, she is 78 and still very active. She is looking at buying a house and land package near Goulburn for $450,000 as an investment. Mum owns her own home valued at $1.2M and an investment property valued at $1.6M and she lives off her super. Apart from the super she has around $200k in savings and would use $150,000 to purchase the property. With a strong net asset position would she be able to get a loan of $300K and what lenders would look at a loan like this?

We have been renting for over a year and found a property we would like to make an offer for around $1.2M. We would only need to borrow $650,000 but have had a few credit issues in the past and sold our previous home to clear all the debts …. the credit report is not clean. We both work full time and would like to know if we could still get a loan and what the rate might be?
