Refinancing Low Doc Loans

Bankwest will still not do refinances with their Low Doc Loan product, however we do have other lenders that will refinance Low Doc Loans up to 80% of the value.


Bankwest will do purchasing through their Low Doc Loans and have two tiers. One low doc loan is done up to 60%. The other low doc loan is done up to 80% and is at a slightly higher rate and will need to be mortgage insured. Both Bankwest Low Doc Loans require an accountants letter, however, if you need an alternative without an accountant’s letter this is possible. With the alternative the main criteria is there must be substanial deposits into the business entity’s bank trading account for the last 12 months.
