Whether you’re a first home buyer, or looking for your next home it‘s probably one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever make.

When it comes to the traditional lenders, getting an approval for a home 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 needs.

Thinking outside the tick box

Popular home loan questions… 

Here are some FAQs about applying for a Pepper Money home loan as a recurring or first home buyer.

You will need to have documents supporting your current financial position such as recent bank statements, payslips or other proof of income, personal identification and a snapshot of your current asset and liability position.

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 Tax Returns, two years Tax Assessment Notice and & last 1 month’s business bank statements. If you are self-employed and unable to provide this documents, you may still qualify for an alternative documentation (alt doc) loan. For more details click here

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. 

It is important to factor in the additional costs you will need to cover when you are taking out a loan. 

Our home loan borrowing capacity calculator asks a few personal and financial questions to calculate an estimate of how much you may be able to borrow with Pepper Money. After finding out how much you could potentially borrow, you can then either speak to a lending specialist about your situation, or continue on to get an indicative interest rate online.

At Pepper Money, we offer a range of variable interest rates depending on your individual circumstances and the product you apply for. A decision on your rate will be 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)
  • The size of your deposit
  • Your source of income
  • Credit history
  • Assets and liabilities 
  • And whether the loan is to purchase an owner-occupied property or an investment property.

The total amount of interest that is paid on your mortgage is determined by your loan size, duration of the loan and the interest rate charged. Interest is usually calculated daily on your outstanding loan balance, then collected when you make a repayment.

As the interest rate is key to the total amount of interest payable over your loan, we’ve made it easy to get an indicative interest rate from Pepper Money online. We’ll firstly ask you to answer a few questions to determine how much you could borrow. Then we’ll ask a few more personal questions to access your credit file and provide you with an indicative interest rate.

Let’s get started

There are fees and charges associated with every home loan which should be factored in when saving your deposit. For example, establishment/application fee, monthly administration fee, legal fees, stamp duty and mortgage risk fee (if applicable). 

Get in touch with one of our Lending Specialists on 137 377 to understand the full list of fees on a Pepper Money home loan and when these might apply. Alternatively you can view a high level summary of our home loan fees here

Your Pepper Money Home Loan Journey can take up to six weeks – this is the typical timeframe for a home purchase, however the process may be quicker if all the necessary documentation is provided sooner. 

Delays in decisions are often caused by incorrect or missing documentation.

Loan to Value Ratio, commonly referred to just as LVR, is the ratio of the loan size to the property purchase price. The size of the deposit plays a key role in determining the LVR, as usually the larger your deposit, the lower your LVR will be. It is a key part of the loan assessment process and it can affect how much you can borrow from a lender, as well as the interest rate charged and the need purchase mortgage insurance.

To calculate your LVR, divide the amount you need to borrow (e.g. $400,000) by the value of the property (e.g. $500,000) and multiply this by 100 to give you a percentage.

$400,000/$500,000 x 100 = 80% LVR. This would mean you have a 20% deposit of $100,000 towards your $500,000 property.

While a high credit score might help you get a rock-bottom interest rate, it may still be possible to apply for a home loan with a less-than-perfect credit score. While the Big 4 banks often prefer to lend to those with a perfect credit history, at Pepper Money, we take a real-life approach to lending and look beyond your credit score to see how we can help you secure the best loan for your individual situation.
