    Can my parents use their house equity being part of retirement living 55’s and over community to guarantee my loan?

      Hi Kate,

      This is difficult to answer because every lender has its own criteria. If your parents own the property, a lender may accept them as a guarantor even if the property is specifically for retirement living. But it really depends on the lender.

      I suggest checking with a lender before submitting a full application. Ask if the lender accepts guarantors and ask if this type of property is generally acceptable.

      It is always worth seeking professional advice from a mortgage broker to ensure you are in an appropriate position to get into a loan agreement, and to get personalised advice into your situation.

      I hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Richard

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for your question and for contacting Finder.

      Generally, lenders have different policies regarding the minimum deposit they require from borrowers to qualify for a home loan. you may read our home loan deposit guide to learn more about what home loan deposit you would need. Moreover, it’s best to contact the bank/lender and discuss your options on the deposit.

      Cheers,

    can I refinance when in a fixed term loan

      Hi Megan,

      Thanks for the question.

      You can refinance from a fixed rate home loan into another, but be aware that you will need to generally pay break costs when leaving a fixed rate home loan before the end of the fixed term. These are worked out with a mathematical formula, so if you are thinking about leaving your fixed rate home loan for a new home loan, it is a good idea to contact your lender and ask them for a quote. You can read more information about break costs and see how it is calculated.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc
