Buying a home is probably the biggest and most exciting financial decision you’ll ever make, especially if it’s your first.

When it comes to the traditional lenders, getting an approval for a loan can mean having to tick a lot of boxes and fitting into a long list of fixed and pre-programmed criteria. Here at Pepper Money we have a much more personal approach, it’s all about helping to find a solution that suits your individual needs.

In fact, 54% of Aussies turned down for a loan didn’t know there was an alternative². There is – and it’s us.

Thinking outside the tick box

thinking outside the box

We understand that in real life everyone’s situation is different. That’s why we look at a wide range of things when we assess any application for a loan. Instead of simply ticking boxes we like to get a good detailed understanding of your situation before we start making decisions. Because we understand the need to move quickly, once we’ve got all your documentation, provided it checks out, we can give you a conditional approval within 24-48 hours.

It's all about being flexible

We’re not about how you can fit into a traditional box, we're about doing our best to provide home loan products that have a little more flexibility.

Buying a home involves a lot of thinking and planning, which, can be a little bit overwhelming. That’s why we’ve made sure the process here is as simple and streamlined as possible. To make it easy for you.

Your situation might not be typical but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still be able to get a home loan.

By being flexible, we’ve been able to help thousands of people in Australia to own their own home.

For PAYG applicants we require two current payslips plus one of the following:

  • Most recent group certificate
  • Most recent tax return / taxation notice
  • Current letter of employment
  • Bank statements – to confirm last 3 months salary credits

For Self-Employed applications we need your last two years Financial Statements and Certified Tax Returns + Tax Assessment Notice. If you are self-employed and unable to provide the above documentation, you may still qualify for an alternative documentation (alt doc) loan such as, a completed 'Self-Employed Declaration of Financial Position'; plus one of the following options:

  • 6 months Business Bank Statements
  • 6 months Business Activity Statements (BAS) or 
  • Pepper Accountant’s Letter (only available for use on select products).

At Pepper Money we can finance home purchases of up to 95% LVR (subject to the loan meeting our eligibility criteria), which means you can start to look at buying once you have saved around 5% of the purchase price. However, we recommend working towards 10% as an ideal target.

The reason for the suggested 10% target is that when saving for your deposit it is really important to factor the additional costs you will need to cover when you are taking out a loan, including:

  • Establishment and risk fees such as mortgage insurance (generally these are up to 2% of the amount being borrowed)
  • Conveyancing and legal costs
  • Government fees including stamp duty (amounts vary based on State and other factors)
  • Title search and registration fees
  • Pest and building inspections
  • Home building insurance prior to settlement

Rates refers to the interest rate, being the amount of interest you pay on your loan amount. Fees are the fees and charges that you pay for establishment and ongoing administration of your loan account.

The interest rate you will qualify for is based on a range of different factors, including: The amount you need to borrow against the property value, known as the loan-to-value ratio (LVR) and the size of your deposit, whether the loan is to purchase an owner-occupied property or investment property, or if you have had any past credit issues.

Your Pepper Money Home Loan Journey can take up to six weeks – this is the typical timeframe for a home purchase, however, we can help turn this around in closer to three weeks if you are ready to go with all the necessary supporting documentation.
