As seen in…
Our award-winning mortgage brokers will find you the right home loan for your situation.
What do the banks assess?
Restaurants, cafes, bakeries, coffee shops, function centres and catering services operate within a small market so lenders tend to assess them differently than large commercial purchases like office buildings and warehouses.
Commercial lenders will generally require you to have at least 1.5 to 2 times the amount of income to proposed interest expenses. This is known as the ‘serviceability ratio’.
Your ability to pay back the loan is key so if you’re quitting your job to run a restaurant, cafe or catering service you’ll need to prove to the banks that you can run a successful venture.
How can we help?
Our mortgage brokers can build a strong case with the right lender.
By doing that, we may be able to negotiate a reduced interest rate and find a lender that will allow you borrow up to the maximum Loan to Value Ratio (LVR). That way you can buy the restaurant business you have your heart set on.
What security can I use for the loan?
- Mortgage over restaurant (or lease, if leasehold).
- Registered fixed or floating charge or Bill of Sale over the business assets of the restaurant.
- Directors’ guarantee.
- A specific charge/security over the restaurant’s liquor licence and, where appropriate for state legislation, related licenses for off-licence packaged liquor operations (not applicable in Western Australia and South Australia).
- A deed of consent between lessor/lessee and the bank.
We’ve lent more than $1 billion+ Australia-wide.
They walked us through the process step by step
We would like to say thank you to Hank from Home Loan Experts for all his help in getting us a guarantor loan.
We were really unsure if we would ever get an approval for a home loan, but Hank immediately knew the right lender to approach for our situation, and made the whole process simple…
We would definitely recommend Home Loan Experts to anyone. Thanks again to Hank and the team from Home Loan Experts for making it possible for us to own our first home.

A very friendly, professional and helpful team
The team was very friendly, professional, helpful and went out of their way to get the right loan that was suitable for us… I recommend this service for those who find it very hard to purchase a property going directly to a bank. Thank you Home Loan Experts, you have finally given my family and me the opportunity to own a beautiful home.

A lot smoother and less stressful than having to deal with banks as an individual
Our mortgage broker was very personable and made us feel like he went above and beyond to assist us in getting our home loan. He had a great knowledge of guarantor home loans which set our minds at ease. He was happy to answer any questions even outside business hours and responded in a professional and timely manner. As a second home buyer I would recommend going through the home loan experts as this process was a lot smoother and less stressful than having to deal with banks as an individual. I would especially recommend Hoa to others.

Throughout the process I felt confident in knowing I could rely on you and at no stage did I ever feel that trust could be an issue with you. You have exceeded my expectations in terms of results and have done this with very short notice. You are an asset to your company and a role model to your profession… I already have and will continue to recommend your services to friends and family.

So easy to speak to no matter how stressful the situation
We are both so grateful to Amine for all of his hard work and great advice over the past year! It’s been such a long journey… We are starting to settle into our new home in Trentham now. It is just so beautiful and relaxing! We really love it and are so happy with our purchase. Amine was right all along – things happen for a reason! Thank you Amine for always being there for us.

He even made a guarantor loan from our parents seem effortless!
After the roller coaster ride of going cap in hand to the bank manager, only to be turned away… we found Tony. What a refreshing change! Within a 2 week time frame, we had approval and were able to follow the normal approval process to get the loan…. With Tony’s inside knowledge on how lenders think he was able to approach the bank with an excellent case and really put us in a great position in the lender’s eyes…. We recommend Tony and Home Loan Experts strongly and will be using them for our next purchase…
