What is a low-documentation home loan?
As the name suggests, a low-documentation (or low-doc) home loan. This is a mortgage product that allows people get a loan, even without the “industry standard” level of financial documentation. Main banks generall do not offer Low-doc home loans. The good news is, there are alternative options from some second-tier and third-tier lenders. Non-Bank Lenders is another name for these lenders.
Non-Bank lenders take a risk when they give money to self-employed people who don’t have their final, signed by an accountant, end-of-year accounts. To make up for this risk, they charge a higher interest rate. These kinds of home loans can be great if you can afford the higher interest rates and want to get into the market right away. So, once you can provide the paperwork the big banks want, you can switch to a major bank and take advantage of their lower interest rates.
What conditions do I have to meet to get a mortgage without business financials?
To qualify for a low-doc loan, you need to have been trading for a minimum period of 6 months. A deposit of 20% is required.

We work with a number of reputable non-bank lenders who can provide solutions that aren’t available through the mainstream banks. Get in touch with us and we can let you know what’s possible.
