    I want to pay extra money of my housing loan will I be charged extra to do so

      RichardApril 18, 2023Finder

      This depends on whether the loan lets you make extra repayments. This is very common on variable rate home loans but is sometimes restricted on fixed rate loans. I suggest checking with a lender directly about your specific loan.

    La Trobe low doc loans have a huge application fee. How can this be reduced ?

    Also how much is the penalty if the loan is repaid within 12 months, 24 months or 36 months or 48 months ?

    I have a house worth $500k and no debt. I have cash coming into my business of $200k in 9 months time. My accountant can verify this. My tax returns don’t show the $200k as it is a property development profit based on exchanging contracts on all the blocks of land.

    Who can give me a low doc loan with a normal application fee of say $500 ?

      Hi Spiros,

      Thanks for the question.

      I would recommend contacting LaTrobe directly to ask about their penalty fees for paying your home loan off at different stages. You can compare other lenders who offer low doc loans and also see how this type of loan works.

      I also recommend getting in touch with a licensed mortgage broker. A broker can help you understand your financial position and they can leverage their panel of networks to find a lender that’s more inclined to review your application.

      I hope this helps,

    Hi there

    Both me and my girlfriend putting away about 1k a week right now, an incomes annual 45k and 40k.

      Hi Gerakd,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You can compare a range of Pepper home loans and under ‘LVR’ (loan-to-value ratio), you will see that the amount you can borrow varies depending on the product and whether it is low documentation or a full documentation loan.

      Generally, you should try to complete a 20% deposit so you can avoid paying Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI), however, if this is not possible then Pepper Loans do allow you to borrow 90% LVR (with a 10% deposit) for specified home loans.

      If you would like to speak with a Pepper Home Loans specialist, you can enter your details and a representative will get in touch with you to discuss your options.

      As a first home buyer, you can read our first homeowner grant (FHOG) guide and learn about the grants and concessions available in your state. Before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you.
