    I am having trouble sourcing finance for a renovation at the moment. I have no credit card or personal loans, just two mortgages on investment properties. I am not matching serviceability requirements according to the banks lending criteria.

    Question is I have two associate leases on the vehicles we own which most lenders have never heard of and asked for the lease loan which there is none. How does the serviceability calculator take into account the improved cash flow?

    They don't take those variables into account for addbacks

    I had one and it confused them. Ended up cancelling the associate lease for a few months during refi process.

    Which bank?
    You may find that you have better serviceability with a different lender

    NAB. Trouble is I want to sell as soon as its finished. It is actually the banks predicted time line for renovation and sale of the property with no income (no tenants).

    Need Another Bank - likely Pepper would do, need to present it to the lender correctly, if you say reno and sell they think "development finance" which is typically commercial in nature and not something most resi funders want to hear...
    See a broker asap

    If the lease is in the business then some lenders will look a gross profit. Other lender will want you to take out the leases and add it back into servicing.
