Melissa Gielnik, Smart Lending
I'm sold on Specialist Lending because...
"there's always a client whose needs cannot be met by a mainstream lender; it's a great product to have in your buffet."
Client case study
Last year, Smart Lending used specialist lending to help their clients of 6 years move forward when their own lender said they would not consider the application.
- Young couple are looking to raise funds against their existing owner occupied property to assist in the purchase of a larger owner occupied home.
- They currently have their existing owner occupied property along with a medium sized (4) investment portfolio with a major lender.
- Mr is a self-employed tradesman with ABN and GST registered over 2 years ago but only trading for the last 18 months. Mrs is PAYG.
- Existing lender not willing to assist with the mortgage for purchase of a new owner occupied home due to the modest profitability of the new business and only 18 month’s trading history.
- The concerns surrounding the income were compounded by existing high debt exposure connected with investment portfolio.
Pepper has developed a strong expertise in analysing self-employed applicants, and were able to assist using:
- Income declaration provided by the self-employed applicant, supported by last 2 quarters of BAS (via the ATO portal).
- Total sales ($50k/quarter) showed turnover consistency, as evidenced through BAS returns. There was a healthy surplus between total sales and non-capital purchases.
- This demonstrated the viability of the business and its capacity to assist with meeting overall finance commitments.
