Pepper Easy Alt Doc Home Loan

Rates and Fees verified correct on December 7th, 2016

The Pepper Easy Home Loan offers a flexible borrowing option for low doc borrowers and some defaults on their credit file.

The Pepper Easy Home Loan Alt Doc is a low doc loan available to those who aren’t able to provide the usual documents required by a full doc loan. It also caters to those with some negative listings on their credit file, as Pepper ignores defaults under $1,000.

This near-prime home loan offers a competitive interest rate and it also offers flexible repayment alternatives. The paperwork required by this alt doc loan caters for borrowers that don’t necessarily have all their tax returns up to date, you can make extra repayments throughout the course of the loan, and it also comes with a redraw facility.

If you’re after a loan and have larger defaults, judgements or writs on your home loan and these have been made over 12 months prior to your application, you might want to consider Pepper’s Flexi Advantage line of loans.

If you’re applying for this loan and are credit impaired, keep in mind that you can have unlimited defaults, judgements or writs if they were registered more than 24 months prior to your application. These can be paid or unpaid.

Features of the Pepper Easy Home Loan Alt Doc

  • Loan amount and loan term. For an LVR of up to 80%, the maximum you can borrow through this loan is $50,000. For LVRs in between 80% and 85%, the maximum loan amount reduces to $650,000. The loan term can vary between 10 and 40 years.
  • LVR. If you plan to buy a home, either to live in or as investment, the maximum LVR stands at 85%. If you're seeking this loan for any other purpose, the maximum LVR reduces to 80%. LVR plays a role in the interest you pay because this loan follows a tiered interest rate structure. For example, you'll be paying a lower interest rate for up to 65% LVR as compared to what you'll have to pay if the LVR is in between 75% and 80%.
  • Repayment flexibility. You have the option to pay the loan off ahead of schedule. You can make extra repayments at any time and you have access to the additional payments via a redraw facility.
  • Redraws. You can redraw money you pay in the form of extra repayments at any time, though you cannot redraw less than $1,000 manually or $50 (online) at a time.
  • Cash out. If you're not borrowing more than 80% of your home's LVR, you can use the money for different purposes. These include paying off ATO debts, using the funds for business purposes and making renovations to your existing home.
