    Has anyone had portability of their loan denied? I’ve been told I can port 2 loans over to 1 property, as long as it’s the same amount and no more than 80% of the new purchase price. I can’t actually apply to port loans over until I have sale contracts and a purchase contract but I’m wondering if anyone has applied and been knocked back at the last minute? I guess I’m stressing out a bit because you can’t get unconditional approval like with a new loan!

    Thanks.

    Bit of a speciality of ours :(

    rare that it would be declined, but depends on lender and a few other things

    Borrowers and owners needs to be the same on both sides.

    The 80 % thing can be tricky, if your loan was previously approved at say 64 %, most lenders will only do that same LVR.

    Thanks Rolf,

    Both loans were purchased at 80% lend.

    If I got a bridging loan or other temporary loan to allow me to settle on the settlement date can I still use portability? My loans are with Westpac.

    Thanks.
