Better Mortgage Management client story
To buy a home with limited income evidence and a low deposit.
James was running a successful business but the only tax returns he could provide to get a home loan were over a year old.
On top of that, his business had grown significantly and the tax returns didn’t show the current turnover.
He initially approached his bank because they offered low doc loans. However, they would only lend a maximum of 80% of the purchase price.
Better Mortgage Management has a variety of funding solutions and, in conjunction with our relationship manager, we agreed that Resimac was a suitable choice for James.
James’ loan was approved by BMM and Resimac using a letter from his accountant as evidence of his current business income.
The interest rate was slightly higher than a standard full doc home loan so we worked with James to make a plan to pay down the loan and refinance it to a lower rate within 2 years.
