Hi Carla & Steve,

Borrowing over 80% of the property value when you have problems with your credit history is very difficult. We would need to look at your situation on a case by case basis to see if it is even possible for you to borrow over 80%.

Your best chance of approval would be with a guarantor loan as we have some lenders that can accept a guarantor loan if you have minor credit issues. If your credit issues are major (>$1,500 in total) then it is unlikely we can assist with a loan over 80%.

At the moment lenders are very conservative when assessing a borrowers past credit history!
