Yes! Self employed customers have slightly different requirements. We recommend preparing your last 3 years’ financial statements and bringing them when you meet your Lendfin specialist.
To qualify for a first home loan, you will need to be able to prove that you earn sufficient income to service the loan. As such, we require your past 3 months of payslips, plus details and proof of any other income. You will also need details of the proposed property you wish to purchase, however we can complete a pre-approval before you have decided on your property.
First Home Loans are available to those who have never owned a property before. You must have: • Regular income, usually through current, stable employment. • An asset for security, or intention to purchase an asset. • Good credit history.
We can finance up to 95% of the purchase price (subject to eligibility criteria).
