Everyone is now aware low doc loans are definitely harder to get than a few years ago. Having said that, as people become used to the new credit environment, we are now seeing customers start to offer BAS statements. This didn’t occur previously.
It seems people are now being conditioned by the banks that more paperwork is required when applying for low doc loans. The normal options are either Accountants letter, BAS statements, or trading statements. This extra paperwork applies to residential property low doc loans which are governed by the NCCP.
In regards to commercial low doc loans, in many cases we don’t require all this extra paperwork. We have recently been offered access to funding large low doc commercial loans with a minimum loan size of $3m. As well as the large low doc commercial loans there is now development finance becoming available for deals that the banks wont do.
As always, if you have a scenario regarding low doc commercial loans please call us.
