If perhaps you are a temporary resident of Australia you might find it tough to organize a home loan. The vast majority of lenders are very careful when it comes to temporary inhabitants, worried that handing out a 30 year mortgage term to somebody that just has approval to stay in Australia for a shorter time may well not be such a good idea!
You can find however some exceptions from some of the bigger banks in case the temporary resident/foreign citizen is for a temporary spouse visa such such as a subclass 309 or 820 and buying the home as joint tenants with their Australian significant other (married or perhaps defacto).
To get approved as being a short-term resident buying with your Australian partner up to 90 % (and potentially even 95 % LVR) you will need to show the following:
1) five % genuine savings – 5 % of the purchase price should be considered real savings. Genuine cost savings are actually funds saved up, kept in a bank account for 3 months, or perhaps shares held for three months or perhaps longer,
Two) Clean credit history – no bankruptcies or credit defaults,
3) Good employment history – typically looking for minimum 3 months in current job with probation period over (although generally there are some exceptions here),
4) Positive asset position – that is your assets (not including Superannuation as well as home contents) must be above your existing liabilities. Ie, in case you and 30k money, 20k car total assets 50k. If you had 5k on credit cards along with a 10k personal loan then your assets outweigh the liabilities of yours. But if you’d a 55k personal bank loan and simply 50k in assets after this you will have a bad asset position,
5) Sufficient money to afford repayments comfortably taking into account the liabilities of yours and living commitments that will continue post settlement,
