    Contact a broker - you'll need all your financial info and they'll be able to let you know how much you can borrow, and how best to structure the loan based on your plans and goals.

    Assuming the value of the property is $400,000 - pull out $80,000 in equity and ensure this is a separate loan account.

    Use this as a deposit for the new purchase. Do the numbers on the new purchase and see if its best to do the new purchase @ 80%, 85%, 88% or 90%.

    Using less deposit now will allow you to have more funds for future use.

    That 17k number is likely because of one of two things:

    1. Your borrowing power is maxed out with NAB. This may be unlikely if thats your only debt and there may be other ways to structure it to get around this.

    2. The valuation of your house provided by NAB is different to the valuation listed above (e.g. valuer has different opinion to REA or yourself).

    It may be a good idea to question NAB and work out where you stand. If they can't make it happen for you, someone with access to different lenders may have different solutions on the table to make it work.

    In terms of set-up - Shahin's provided the template for how to structure it.

    Cheers,

    If your existing loans are under 80 %, and you didnt pay lenders mortgage insurance on the purchase, it may be worh looking at getting valuations from a couple of other lenders before application........

    Often NAB does Kerbside valuations on properties they already hold as security, and these are usually NOT on the money

    Sounds like the $400,000 is a real estate valuation and the bank's valuation has come back around the $320,000 mark.

    I recommend ordering a few valuations (using different lenders and different valuers) to see if you can pull out more equity.
