ANZ LMI is the in house mortgage insurer for ANZ bank and the underwriter for all of their home loans that are mortgage insured. They work exclusively with ANZ so you won’t be able to access them unless you apply for a mortgage through ANZ.

How does ANZ LMI compare?

They’re great at

  • Offering cheaper premiums for some loan sizes
  • Approving existing ANZ customers with a good credit history
  • Approving applications with basic documents – often just one payslip is needed!
  • Just relying on one year’s tax returns to approve self-employed applications
  • Considering mortgage insured loans over $1 million

But they’ve got some drawbacks…

  • Policy is conservative
  • Require genuine savings for loans over 85% LVR
  • They may not accept add-backs if you’re self-employed
  • New borrowers cannot borrow over 90% LVR
  • Investors cannot borrow over 90% LVR
  • LMI can be expensive for some loan sizes

The ‘existing borrower’ favouritism

ANZ won’t allow you to borrow over 90% of the property value unless you’re an existing borrower of ANZ.

By proving yourself as a good borrower, ANZ LMI is more comfortable in approving a 95% home loan.

At least one borrower must be an existing customer but what exactly does an existing lending customer mean?

  • At least one borrower must qualify
  • Must have been an existing borrower for 6 months
  • Your repayments must be in full and on time
  • A credit card, home loan, investment loan, small business loan, overdraft or personal loan is acceptable

What isn’t an existing lending customer?

  • Loans in the name of your company
  • Closed accounts such as a credit card you closed a month ago
  • Other accounts like a savings or cheque account

Don’t worry if ANZ can’t help you!

There are other lenders that may allow you to borrow over 90% of the property value.

  • Wayne

    I am self employed and I’ve already applied with ANZ so does this affect my credit history if I want to apply with your company?

  • A credit enquiry for a mortgage has a relatively low effect on your credit score. It’s shopping around for credit cards and personal loans that can quickly trash your Veda score. We can do an ‘authorised agent’ enquiry, which allows us to see your file but has no impact on your score. We can then decide if it is worthwhile to apply elsewhere to get a better deal or not.

    FYI we can reapply with ANZ if you want our services but would like to use ANZ. A lot of people do this as we’ll monitor the loan for free after your loan is advanced. Feel free to call us on 1300 889 743 if you’d like our help.
