No Deposit Home Loans – options:
  • 105% loan with guarantor. With help from your family, you can borrow more than the purchase amount in order to also cover  the associated fees and charges.
  • Non-refundable gift. A non-refundable gift of cash from a family member can assist you in purchasing a property.
  • Equity in an existing property. If you have a property already and want to buy another property, you can use the equity from your existing property as your deposit.
  • Personal Loan as a deposit. If you have sufficient income, it is possible to obtain a personal loan to create a deposit. This type of lending is an expensive option and will only be looked at as a last resort.
  • We also have other options available via vendor finance. The vendor finance option is not something we normally recommend due to the complex and expensive nature of this type of loan and so we have decided not to write any content regarding vendor finance for our website. Your mortgage broker will discuss this option with you once they have exhausted all other options.
