I have found that once you are above base 90% LVR, then banks look at applications in a more conservative light. Not only banks, but the LMI provider gets involved as well. Needs to be a strong application, but it is doable. What you might also want to be wary about is to apply for the land and con...
Yes, I understand. Would you suggest I try another broker? On the second part, would this be an issue if the lender is ...

I've had this before with people buying investment properties first in Victoria. As long as it was bought after July 2000 and it was never lived in by the purchaser then they were eligible First Home Buyers when it came time to buy an owner occupied property. It's a technicality that not many people...

If you are comfortable with the repayments holding both properties for that temporary period, then it can be a worthwhile exercise. What are some of your concerns you have after discussions with your conveyancer? Cheers, Tom

As Bec says yes it is. What Macquarie charge is really on the high side compared to a lot other lenders for the same thing, but there is not much you can do about it unfortunately. Cheers, Tom

Just to add to Bec's post, you need to take into account the possibility of a valuation shortfall, or unexpected contingency costs that may come up that are on top of the building contract price which would need to come out of your own pocket. With already a small deposit, the above could really imp...

As Bec said, you can basically do what you want whether its go direct with a bank or with another broker. There may be other options out there now that weren't present when you did the first pre-approval. As you had pre-approval beforehand, unless you had some major changes with your financial circu...

Have to say that current lots being sold for $370,000 compared to the $430K you paid doesn't bode well for any valuation if they are of a similar size and dimensions to what you bought. When it comes time for the valuation, it would help if you or your broker could try and find some comparable sales...

How much is the minimum down payment nowadays that the bank requires for land + construction loan? I'm not a first home buyer. Is it easy to get approval with 90% LVR? Thanks It all depends on how strong your overall application is. Having a 10% deposit overall (plus additional for closing costs su...

We have signed a contract on a block of land that is still being developed. We have finance approval subject to title. The developer has informed us title will be ready in approx 60 days but is rejecting our pre approval and is demanding unconditional finance approval. We are at a loss as to what t...

Not all - some are like that, the Adelaide product is unique. Check it out :) Even BOM (or St George to rest of the country) do it as well. Servicing on end debt only also.

We are wishing to purchase a (private sale) block and preferably want to do it all in one hit (land and construction loan in one) but the sellers do not wish to wait around while we draw up plans and get council approval.. So is our only option get a land loan then further down the track get a cons...

Hi All. Situation is, we've got a mortgage at the moment and have some decent equity in the home (House value is about 900k and Mortgage is at 600k). We want to buy land and build a house. Problem we have is, we want to be able to sell our current home and move straight into a the new home so we ca...

Might be the FHOG in that they have withheld it as part of the payment. Not sure how it works with CBA, I know with ANZ they will allow the client to draw down the full invoice amount at slab and then pay them the FHOG directly. Do you not have to pay anymore funds towards the construction? Is it a ...

Hope someone can help clear up some confusion for me. I'll be paying LMI on my loan for my build. Its around the 90% LVR. Now I'm trying to keep it below 90% because I can get a much better interest rate that way, above 90% and LMI and interest rate shoots up. Where I get confused though it that wh...
The LMI is calculated on the base loan which is the amount at 89.7% in your case. If you pay the LMI with cash then the...

Hey Guys, My wife and I are planning on buying land soon and building our dream house. We are nearing the point where this is feasible, so we are obviously quite excited, but I'm wondering if I should cool my jets and wait a few months, or if I can proceed right now. Current situation: Own an inves...

If you are comfortable with a higher LVR and LMI, then don't let that deter you. In the end it's your decision to make, and no one else can do it for you. Though I am confused. You mention here in this thread about a house and land package, but in another you are just talking about vacant land? Chee...

Just wondering if someone with finance knowledge can help me not make a huge mistake. My husband and I would like to buy a house and land package in Sydney's south west for $685K. We have a combined income of $180K and credit card limit of $15K. After paying stamp duty on the land we will only have...

On top of that, I believe the lender needs to know that you can make your monthly loan payments during construction. If the lender thinks you can’t make your current rent or mortgage payments while your next house is being built, you won’t qualify. If you are constructing an owner occupied property...

As Bec mentioned, rent won't be needed to be taken into account if you are constructing for your owner occupied residence. The land loan regardless of whether it's left as is or internally refinanced will be taken into account for servicing. The other thing you might have to worry about is LMI on th...
