Big 4 bank reduces lending to temporary residents

    Recommended Posts

    A big 4 bank has announced they will reduce their borrowings to eligible Australian temporary residents. Previously a temporary resident could borrow up to 80% of the value of the property which meant a 20% deposit was required. This particular lender has now announced that they will only lend up to a maximum of 70% to eligible temporary residents. This now means a 30% deposit will be required with this lender plus costs associated with the purchase of the property.


    There are other lenders who will still lend up to 80% to eligible temporary residents (90% in some circumstances).


    Also note that as a temporary resident FIRB approval is required which is an additional $5,000 see this link for more details
