Low Deposit Home Loans / First Home Buyers

Have you dreamed of owning your very own piece of New Zealand but never thought it was financially possible because of the home loan deposit you need?

Not too long ago this may have been the case as most finance institutions would have required you to save at least 20% deposit, plus other associated costs, to qualify for a home loan and own your own home dream.

In today’s financial home loan climate, raising 20% of the purchase price as a deposit for a house can be a very difficult proposition for many people. Thankfully most of the major banks now lend up to 90% of the purchase price of a residential property and maybe higher with a guarantor, although conditions would apply.

We also have non bank lenders that will consider applications with as little as a 5% deposit.


You may be able to withdraw most of your KiwiSaver to finance a deposit on your first home purchase. There are special financial circumstances that allow second chance home owners to also withdraw their KiwiSaver.

You may also be eligible for a HomeStart Grant.

Low Doc Loans

Being self-employed has many benefits but traditionally borrowing money can prove to be difficult. This is sometimes due to a lack of financial information or low net profit.

Generally financial institutions like to see the last three years of a self-employed applicant’s financial history. Most financial institutions approve loans based on a number of financial criteria, one of them is your ability to repay lending by looking at the net profit of your business after expenses. Financial lenders tend to average your income out over a three year period. You know you can afford it, but the banks may say no when it comes to lending you money. Let Quantum Financial Advisers help you!

Low documentation financial loans have been in the finance market place for some time now. There are not too many differences between a fully documented loan, where you provide your company tax returns and other supporting information, and a low documentation loan. The main differences are based on how much you can borrow, the size of the loan, the loan to value ratio and current finance interest rates.

So what is a low doc loan?

  • A low doc loan is exactly that, it’s low on the documentation you need to provide!
  • You don’t need to provide tax returns and financial statements
  • You don’t need to prove rental income when buying a rental property
  • If you are borrowing 60% or more, then the above applies but you will also be required with most of the major banks to provide three months’ worth of business bank statements, so the finance lender can better understand the cash flow of your business account
  • If you are borrowing more than 60% of the value of the property, a lenders mortgage insurance fee may apply that is charged by the financial lending institution (the same charge is applied to full documentation loans when borrowing more than 80%)

Would I qualify?

  • Have you been self-employed for at least 2 years or less in some circumstances? See (Non-Conforming loan)
  • Do you have a clear credit rating?
  • Have you kept up with your current mortgage repayments if you are refinancing?

If you have answered yes to the majority of the above questions then it is likely that you would qualify. Contact Quantum Financial Advisers today for more information.

Non-Conforming Loans

Generally financial institutions like to see the last 3 years of a self-employed applicant’s financial reports and for those who are employed, finance lenders like to see employment consistency. Finance lenders approve loans based on a number of criteria and one of them is your ability to repay a loan by looking at your business net profit after expenses, or by looking at payslips. Finance lenders tend to average your income out over a three year period.

Finance lenders criteria don’t always suit everyone, for example if you have only just started a business within the last 12 months, or you’ve only been in a job for a short amount of time. You may have current financial reports but you have had a couple of trade disputes which has resulted in a default or a judgement on your credit rating. Or your credit risk is ok, you have financials and you need to consolidate debt, but because you have fallen behind in repayments the banks just don’t want to know?

If you have a property asset to borrow money against and a fairly good understanding of your potential earnings for the next 12 months, then a non-conforming loan maybe the financial solution for you.

So what is a Non-Conforming loan?

  • A non-conforming loan means it does not quite conform to traditional bank finance criteria
  • You may not need to provide tax returns and financial statements to qualify
  • You may not need to provide evidence of rental income if you are buying a rental property
  • You may only need to sign a statutory declaration stating that you are aware of the loan repayments, how much you earn and that you can afford the loan
  • You may be able to qualify whether you are self-employed or employed
  • You may have only been in business for a short time
  • Your credit history may not be the best

At the start of the working week, some people like to get their diaries in order or like to create a list of all the things that they will (try to) achieve this week, then set an order of priority around them.
Well, that’s what we do,however, there is always one or two things on that list that we will put off and roll over to the following week.

They are the if I have the time or if I have the head space for them I’ll do it kind of things.

And what we find is that those things, while not done, remain an irritation a bit like when you end up with a small pebble in your shoe. The pebble can be irritating, uncomfortable, nagging and can be eventually crippling. You can put up with it for a short time, then you have to stop, take the shoe off and shake it out.

And when you do, there is this immediate feeling of comfort and relief that returns.
I am often reminded every day, that for most people if their mortgage was their shoe, they tend to walk around with a pebble in it for a long time.

While they know that stopping and taking the shoe off to shake the pebble out, will make a world of difference, stopping and reviewing their mortgage is something few are inclined to do.

Life can change significantly over 2 and 3 years and it’s so important that you make sure that your mortgage, its features and interest rate, remains the best one for you.
Your little pebble might be $20 or $30 unnecessarily draining out of your budget EVERYDAY! In other words, you may be paying $20 – $30 everyday too much for your mortgage.

Conducting a mortgage review with us is just as easy as it is to remove a pebble in your shoe. We can do it over the phone.
We are happy to make some time for you this week inour diary. Just let us know.
