If you are an individual with existing business debts and enough equity on your Residential properties to cover these, we can help consolidate your debts into a single facility- saving you on interest expenses & additionally providing the convenience of having all your debts in a single facility. Alternatively, AMB has a broad panel of lenders that can lend against a commercial security. Arrange a free, no-obligation appointment to discuss your needs.

    Q: What is the difference between a Principal and Interest home loan and an Interest-only home loan?
    What is the difference between a Principal and Interest home loan and an Interest-only home loan?

    A: Principal & Interest means you make repayments against both the original amount borrowed ('Principal') and the interest charged. Interest-only means that you only make repayments to meet the interest payable (in the short term). You should consult with a financial advisor to determine what best suits your needs and circumstances.

    Q: Why would I take out an interest only loan?
    Why would I take out an interest only loan?

    A: Usually investors choose interest only repayments to maximise the benefits of negative gearing; that is tax benefits. With interest only repayments you do not pay off the principal (i.e. original amount) borrowed. The interest rates may differ from those offered for Principal and Interest repayment type.

    Q: How is interest calculated?
    How is interest calculated?

    A: Interest is calculated on your outstanding balance on a daily basis and charged to your loan account once a month. For this reason, and because of the number of days between interest charges varies, the amount of interest charged each month may also vary. To calculate monthly interest, the balance is multiplied by the interest rate %, then divided by 365 days in a year, then multiplied by the number of days in the current month.

    Q: How much can I borrow?
    How much can I borrow?

    A: You can borrow up to 95% of the property value for Owner Occupied purpose and up to 90% of the property value for Investment purposes. Please note, anything above 80% of the property value is subject to eligibility and will incur Lenders Mortgage Insurance costs. If you are self-employed and use Low Doc process you can lend up to 80% of the property value. (Lenders Mortgage Insurance may be required.)

    How much you can afford to borrow will depend on a range of different factors such as your income, credit history, savings/deposit, and the value of the home you’re interested in buying. Our home loan calculators can give you a good indication of your borrowing power and help you work out what your repayments would be for the proposed lending.

    Alternatively, our home loan specialists can explain all your options and take you through a range of scenarios to see what works best for you. You can request an appointment now or call 1300 262 262, 9am – 5pm, AEST, 5 days a week.

    The minimum loan amount is $20,000.

    Q: How much deposit do I need?
    How much deposit do I need?

    A: You may be eligible to borrow up to 95% of the property value so you won’t need to save for a large deposit – you just need to have enough to cover the 5% deposit, stamp duty and other admin fees. So you could be getting into your own home sooner than you think.

    Please note, if your deposit is less than 20% of the property value then you may also need to pay for Lenders Mortgage Insurance which can be added to the loan (conditions apply) in most cases.
