Sucasa home loan

Take out a home loan with as little as a 5% deposit, without paying lenders mortgage insurance (LMI).

For many aspiring homeowners, saving for a deposit is one of the hardest obstacles. Although one alternative is to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance, home loan provider Sucasa eliminates the need for either.

You can borrow between 80% to 95% of the property value simply by using Sucasa's offer of a second loan to cover the difference above 80%. Sucasa's upfront costs are lower than LMI. You do need to be based in a metro capital city area to be eligible for a loan.

Expert review

This loan offers a way onto the property market for borrowers worried about not having enough of a loan deposit. The way the loan is structured means borrowers can borrow up to 95% of the property value, with upfront costs lower than LMI.

In terms of fees the loan has an establishment fee, which is calculated based on individual borrower circumstances. There is also a quite a high $795 discharge fee.

The Sucasa home loan offering works through 2 loans. A primary loan covers the first 70–80% of the value of the property. There is then a second loan for the remaining amount you'd like to borrow.

Although you might want to avoid a higher deposit or LMI, you need to consider your own personal circumstances as to whether the additional loan value is manageable for you.
