Home Loans For Paediatricians | 90% No LMI

How Much Can I Borrow?

As a paediatrician, several lenders will waive LMI if you’re borrowing up to 90% of the property value.

What Is Waived LMI?

Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is usually paid when you’re borrowing more than 80% of the property value.

If the deposit you’ve saved is less than 20% of the property value, most people have to pay LMI.

However, as a paediatric doctor, you’ll find that many lenders will waive LMI if you have just a 10% deposit.

The benefits of waived LMI are:

  • You don’t have to wait and save for a 20% deposit to avoid LMI.
  • You can save tens of thousands of dollars in LMI fees.
  • The money saved can be used to expand your property portfolio.
  • You do not need a guarantor to get waived LMI.

How Much Do I Save On LMI fees?

Why Do Lenders Waive LMI For Paediatricians?

Banks prefer to lend money to applicants who are in stable jobs and minimise the risk of default. Not surprisingly, those employed in the medical professions have topped the list of low-risk borrowers.

Lenders waive LMI for you as a paediatric doctor because:

  • Your income increases with experience
  • You tend to borrow large amounts
  • You are not likely to default on your mortgage
  • You can refer other high-net-worth clients

How Can I Qualify For Waived LMI?

The eligibility requirements for waived LMI for paediatricians are as follows:

  • You must be a paediatric surgeon or practitioner
  • You must be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
  • You are either borrowing in your name or a trust (if you’re a director or a trustee)
  • You are currently working in Australia. (If you are still a student or a retiree, then you are not eligible.)

Note that there is no income threshold for paediatric doctors to become eligible for waived LMI.

Does My Partner/Spouse Need To Be A Medical Professional If We Apply Together?

No, your partner or spouse does not need to be a medical professional if you apply for a home loan together.

If either applicant is working as a paediatrician, then you can still get LMI waived.

As long as one of you is currently working as a paediatrician in Australia and meets the requirements mentioned above, you can still get LMI waived.

What If I Don’t Qualify For Waived LMI?

There are other options available if you don’t qualify for waived LMI.

  • If you have a guarantor, you can borrow more than 100% without paying LMI.
  • As a high-earning professional who rarely defaults, lenders will offer discounts and fee waivers for your application.
