    Hi

    Just a quick question
    What lenders are competitive at the moment with rates and will waive LMI on 90 or 95% LVR for loans for doctors?
    I'm just compiling a list before I compare rates and start talking to lenders.

    Any tips hugely appreciated!

    many lenders
    But the rates can be lower with the smaller banks who don't provide the waivers.

    Usually the bigger lenders have MEDICO policies. Big 4, BoQ specialist, other specialist medico lenders.

    Most of the others, Big 9 & and beyond don't have waivers.

    Suncorp ING Macq AMP Adelaide Bankwest etc - I don't think they have medico waivers. Macquarie did, but pulled it not too long ago I believe. They price by LVR anyway, so it hasn't been competitive.

    The big 4 do 90% no LMI - they don't do 95%. Anyone telling you they do 95% is telling you porkie pies.

    ANZ is the only lender that has an awesome niche medico product whereby they will lend up to $1mil secured against a medico's billing entity. This can be used in conjunction with the 90% resi product.

    Boq specialist also advertise 95 or 100%. Again by cocktailing personal or commercial finance with the home loan.

    How is lending against billing different to considering that as self employed income?

    Difference is the lender is lending against a billing entity so effectively the billing entity is the actual security. There is no property involved.

    So lets say a GP has no properties and is renting - he is self employed and has an ABN that bills the medical centre he/she works at. The applicant is able to borrow up to $1mil and the loan is secured against the ABN. He/she can use the money to purchase property, invest in shares, etc and the rates are circa 6.50% so a lot cheaper than personal or unsecured loans.

    Anz offer is 95% on owner occupied + p&i only /w none of those complications

    Boq specialist would go up to 100% but charge loan shark rates on the 5-10% so not very appealing.

    Hi Rolf,

    Cashflow lending is a different product to the medico product.

    The medico product has 2 subset policies (of which one is about to be pulled unfortunately) and its based on current full financials.

    ANZ do 95% for owner occupied loans for existing credit customers (home loan, credit card, personal loan etc)

    No need to go through anz health and available via broker channel.
