What you need to apply

To speed up your application, make sure you have the necessary documents on hand when applying for your mortgage or investment loan - you can fax, email or post these documents to us.

Property purchase:

  • First two pages of the contract of sale
  • A Statutory Declaration stating that a gift or any other contribution you have received is not repayable, and evidence that the funds for the gift/contribution exists eg. Statements.
  • If the LVR < 85%: Latest bank statements to confirm that you currently hold the funds for the deposit
  • If the LVR between 85%-95%: You will need to provide proof that you have genuinely saved a minimum of 5% of the purchase price 3 months prior to application.

How to provide proof of genuine savings:

At a minimum, 3 months financial records need to be provided evidencing genuine savings.

At least 5% of the purchase price must be shown to be held at the end of a 3 month period. Depending on the records provided and how the 5% balance has been accumulated, some deposit amounts may need to be held for a full 3 month period in order to support the application, and in some situations, for up to 6 months.

Genuine savings can also be formed from equity in a residential property, and shares held for no less than three months.

Saving for your deposit:
If you're an owner/occupier borrowing up to 95% you will need at least a 5% deposit of genuine savings.

If you're an investor, borrowing in excess of 85% you are required to demonstrate 10% of the purchase price as genuine savings. The remainder of your deposit can be formed of 'non-genuine savings', which include:
  • Gift or inheritance only
  • Sale of assets e.g. motor vehicle
  • First Home Owners Grant (FHOG)
  • Funds held in a company / business account
  • Personal loan proceeds
