Things to Keep in Mind While Applying to a Self-Employed Home Loan

by Ranjan Khatak Director and founder of Your Finance Adviser

If you’re a self employed person, we are certain that you’ll be aware of the daily challenges involved in keeping your business operationalAlthough there are variety of them, some of these may include keeping all types of accounts, finances, and income stream on target. But one challenge which we know all of you with agree with is when we say that it is the most difficult one, is securing a home loan. Since past several years, the self employed people in Australia have faced major problems in getting a home loan for themselves with the reason being their lack of ability to produce income and employment documents. This prompts the lenders to build an opinion that self-employed borrowers typically present as a high-risk factor as they don’t generate a stable income.  

But now with the introduction of self-employed home loan scheme in Australia, the situation has changed a lot for the better. With the help of this scheme, a variety of self-employed individuals such as doctors, lawyers, chartered accountants, engineers and non-professionals such as traders can acquire a home loan expert to finance their house or property in Australia either individually or jointly.  


But while applying to this loan, there are a few points which you must keep in mind as a self-employed home loan borrower: 

  • Plan your financials: Generally, all the lenders whether it be a bank or any other financial institution want to see a solid degree of income from the borrowers. This is important as it indicates them that the borrower will be able to meet their obligation to make repayments. But when the borrower is self-employed it sometimes become difficult for him to get all the necessary documents together to provide his/her income. In these circumstances there is an option to provide alternative documentation, which allows for self-employed or small business owners who cannot offer the same forms of income documentation that majority of the banks nowadays require. 

  • Be totally transparent: It’s vital that the borrower should remain completely transparent with the lender about the ups and downs of your business from the very beginning of acquiring a loan. This will prove to be very important if in case, there are any substantial fluctuations in the taxable income on the borrower’s yearly business statements from one year to another.
