    I am an old-age pensioner and recently bought a property that needs to be repaired to make it livable. I will need $40,000 or less. Can I borrow said amount using my pension as my source of income?

      Hi Sebastian,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, Bankwest accepts parenting payments and DSP as income. You can apply for their loan if your minimum income is at $20,000 p.a. and meet the eligibility criteria above.

      When you are ready, simply head to Commonwealth Bank’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.

      There are a few more lenders that can grant you Centrelink loan and Pensioner loan. You may refer to our table to each lender’s condition. You can click the name of the lender or the “More info” link to be redirected to our review page and learn more about the lender’s loan offer, rates, and requirements as well as the pros and cons of using their loan service. When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the lender’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.

      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. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.

      I hope this helps.

      Have a great day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    My partner and I own our property outright and are looking to do renovation works and would like to know who/best interest rate/5 years for $100,000

      Hi Pamela,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder.

      You may have to compare your options to find which loan will be suitable for you depending on the extent of your home renovation. You may have the following options: a line of credit home loan, construction loan, and personal loans for renovation.

    • A line of credit loan allows you to tap into this equity. Your lender will offer you a credit limit based on your equity, and you can use as much or as little as you like.
    • A construction loan is a specialty mortgage that pays a builder throughout the construction process. It also gives you the option to pay only the interest portion of your loan until after construction is complete.
    • Lastly, a personal loan for home improvement and renovation loans, may be a good idea but this would be beneficial if expenses are small and won’t require a high budget.
    • Each link above have a list of lenders you can compare, 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. Also if you can, contact first the issuing bank/lender and discuss your options and chances of approval before you send anything final for your application. Just apply for one loan at a time and ensure your eligibility before submitting your final application.

      When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the lender’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.

      Hope this information helps.

      Kind Regards,
      Kathy

      Hi Nao,

      Thanks for reaching out to Finder.

      While we cannot surmise how Bankwest will assess your application, generally denied credit applications listed on your credit file will be viewed by lenders as a red flag. You may refer to the eligibility criteria above and check if you meet them. I have also sent to your email Bankwest’s personal loan application checklist for your reference. Meanwhile, you may want to read our guide on how credit enquiries impact your credit score.

      If you are to apply for another loan, it’s a good idea to give it some time before applying again. Make sure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and if ever you’re unsure, contact the lender to check if you’ll qualify.

      It will also help to have a clear picture of your current credit standing so you’ll know which credit products you’ll qualify for. You can do this by getting your free credit score and a copy of your credit report.

      As for your loan options, you can check some loans available to casual employees that you might qualify for as well.

      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. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.

      I hope this has helped. Feel free to message us again if you have any questions.

      Cheers,
      Liezl

    Hi
    My mum is 69 and owns her own home and wants to do renovations up to $120k can she borrow money and have a sibling repay the loan?
    Thanks.

      Hi Louise,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      Whether your mum would be able to borrow money or not would depend on the lender’s eligibility requirements. However, since you mentioned that your sibling would repay the loan, it may be a better idea if he/she would apply directly instead of your mum if your mum can’t provide the requirements of the lender.

      I highly recommend that you learn more about renovating your home. Open that page and you’ll read our guide that comes with the following information:

      – The benefits of home renovation
      – How to prepare for a home renovation
      – Estimating your renovation costs
      – How to finance your renovation
      – How to increase property value from a renovation
      – Compare renovation services

      After reading through our guide, please be sure to check your options for financing a home renovation to ensure you choose the right one for you.

      Don’t forget to read through the terms, conditions, and features of the loan before making a decision.

      Should have further questions, please let us know.

      Regards,
      Harold
