Can I get a no doc commercial loan?

Hi home loan experts,

I graduated last December and I’ve been planning to establish a business of my own. I’ve always wanted to do that. I need a property to start off my venture. I’ve even found a suitable property a few minutes away from my home.

A few friends suggested that I can get a no doc commercial loan to purchase the property. None of them seemed to know much about it though so I wanted to talk to somebody with professional expertise.

I’d bumped into this forum a few weeks back when I was researching commercial property loans. It seemed very useful so here I am again.

Can anyone please help me out and explain whether or not I can get a commercial loan?

Hi and welcome to the forums ladygaga.

You may qualify for a no doc commercial loan if you want to purchase :
  • Properties in capital cities and major regional locations.
  • Unspecialised properties such as offices, factories, warehouses, and retail properties.
  • Commercial, industrial, or mixed-use zoning properties.
  • Investment properties with a current lease in place.
It should be noted that a property must be readily saleable and in a good condition to be accepted as security for a commercial loan.

It should also be noted that the lenders may not accept your loan application if you want to purchase:
  • Properties in remote locations.
  • Specialised properties such as hotels, petrol stations, and day care centres.
  • Residentially zoned properties.
  • Properties in a poor condition.
If you want to take out a loan to purchase a property that is occupied by your business, then the lender may decide whether or not to lend to you only after evaluating your case.

Does the property you are looking into fall under any of the above categories?

Cheers,
Otto

Yes, it falls under unspecialised properties because I basically need an office type of space where I can set up my business. It’s located centrally in Perth.

I’ve heard that lenders ask for several documents before approving a loan application. What documents would I exactly need?

Hi ladygaga,

Here is a list of documents that you may need to qualify for a no doc commercial loan:
  • Statements for your existing commercial loan.
  • Evidence of your deposit.
  • Documents of the lease for the property.
  • A declaration form confirming that you are aware of the repayments of the loan and can afford them.
You can use our Loan Repayment Calculator to find out the amount of your periodic repayments.

It should be noted that you may not need to provide evidence of your income. However, if you can provide it, then you may qualify for a more attractive interest rate.

Hey there, good morning to everyone!

I’m about to finish my architecture degree and I want to immediately start my own firm after I graduate. I was going through this thread and I learnt a lot about no doc commercial loans.

I have one question though. I’ve heard that no doc commercial loans are significantly costlier than normal home loans. Is it true?

Hi aussie,

For a no doc commercial loan, you may have to pay an interest rate that is three to four percent higher than a normal home loan. This is because lenders are taking a high risk by lending to a borrower without income evidence or a certainty of a stable financial situation.

It should be noted that no doc commercial loans are not regulated by the National Consumer Credit Protection (NCCP) act. Due to this reason, lenders may charge you certain fees if you decide to switch the lender or pay off the loan before the loan term ends.

This may not apply to all lenders. You can go through our website to find out more.

Cheers,
Otto
