    hi guys.
    just wondering are you able to get a pre-approval amount from a bank of say 800k
    and then can you apply to settle 2 properties simultaneously with the bank if they were 400k each, provided u have funds for deposit, stamp duty and legals

    thanks

    Or you could get two pre approvals for $400 each.....

    thanks tobe
    so it is possible to get a master-limit credit approval for the maximum amount the bank will lend and then get ip's accordingly to save time and no of credit hits?
    thanks

    Sure. Go for the max based on your income and deposit.

    It doesn't save much time though, and credit hits aren't a huge consideration in this example, as long as the number of credit hits correlates to the number of investment properties owned it's fine.

    One of my clients just did this. One big pre-approval and then she bought 2 smaller properties with loans almost totalling the pre-approved amount.

    was the process quicker on the individual property loan apps as a result.

    No difference really. The second application was not pre-approved but as the policies had no changed we were confident that the serviceability was ok. You have to watch out for the recent changes in this area. 2 halves don't necessarily = a whole.

    As far as I am aware ANZ are the only ones that can do this.

    I have submitted refinance/ equity release plus pre-approval in the same application and instructed the assessor to split them according to what I want ie. one application, 1 credit hit etc but two application reference numbers.

    So say I lodge an application for 1 mill, I cover it in the notes and say it involves a refinance of an OFI with a balance of $400,000 top up of $100,000 and seek a pre-approval for $600,000 investment purchase where funds to complete from the new purchase will be from $100,000 cash out.

    Saves me some work too.

    I would presume that ANZ could do it for two purchases too.

    It's not the norm.

    If you genuinely want to purchase two properties at the same time - and feel the need for a preapproval is important than grab two of them.

    Cheers
