    Due to the interest, lots of investors request to change the loan status from investment into home loan.

    Some even swift to different banks to make sure such change can be done asap. Some claim 1st property is for himself to 'live in", another property is for herself (wife) to "live in", the 3rd one is their son's 'home loan' although son could be just an infant...

    What can their banks and ATO do for such change?

    Nothing to do with ato.
    Really just the investor swindling the bank into giving them a better rate...
    (Assuming already purchased as an IP)

    I never understood how someone could have three PPOR's... Wouldn't it seem silly when the bank looks at it? (Unless of course you split it up to one loan per bank)

    Are there any T's and C's in PPOR home loans that could cause a breach of contract if property is offered for lease? Maybe LMI conditions?

    Worse still, could it mean you breach loan conditions and bank pulls property out from under you???

    I really couldn't see them investigating it further especially at a branch level as if they would care. Just switch to estatements and split your loans between banks

    Servicing loans without showing rental income can be issue, wouldn't it?

    Shouldn't be a problem if you can keep the web of lies up.. Bank 1 has PPOR Loan 1 against Property 1.
    Bank 2 has PPOR Loan 2 against Property 2, knowing Bank 1 has IP Loan 1 against Property 1, and considers rental income.
    Etc.
    So each new bank thinks all other loans are IP's, thus considering the associated rental incomes.

    Rather pay extra surcharge of .25% or whatever that may be.

    Charge more rent where possible.
    Claim more negative gearing benifit (if available)
    Look at way to increase Return

    Then false declaration to lender!
