Case Study 1


Client Background

James and Sarah, a married couple with two children, aimed to purchase an investment property by leveraging the existing equity in their owner-occupied home. James is self-employed, while Sarah works full-time, providing a steady income.

The Challenge

James’s income posed a significant challenge due to low earnings from the previous year, attributed to business expansion activities that reduced his declarable income. Most lenders average business income over a two-year period, which would have resulted in an unfavourable loan outcome for James.

The Solution

BrokerCo stepped in to assist James and Sarah. Understanding lender policies, BrokerCo identified a lender that allowed the use of James’s most recent year’s income for loan assessment. This approach avoided the usual two-year averaging method, presenting a more favourable financial picture for James.

Execution

The broker meticulously navigated lender policies and presented James’s financials to a lender willing to consider his latest income figures. BrokerCo also restructured the couple’s existing lending arrangements, enabling them to borrow 100% of the purchase price plus additional costs.

Outcome

Thanks to BrokerCo’s expertise, James and Sarah secured the necessary loan for their new investment property and optimised their lending structure. This restructuring maximised their tax deductions, enhancing the financial viability of their investment.

Conclusion

This case highlights the pivotal role of an experienced broker in securing favourable loan terms, especially for self-employed individuals with non-standard income situations. BrokerCo’s adept handling and deep understanding of lender policies enabled James and Sarah to achieve their investment goals and optimise their financial strategy.

Case Study: Securing a Home Loan for Self-Employed Borrowers

Client Background

Rebecca and Tom urgently needed a home loan after their rental property was sold, forcing them to expedite their plans for homeownership. Rebecca, a stable PAYG employee, met loan requirements, but Tom, self-employed in construction, faced unique challenges.

The Challenge

Tom lacked the typical two years of tax returns required for full doc loans due to his business’s youth.

The Solution

BrokerCo, with expertise in self-employed credit, proposed using Tom’s 2023 tax return and last three Business Activity Statements (BAS) to verify income. Effective communication with the lender secured an exception for this challenging scenario.

Execution

The broker presented Tom’s financial stability and business growth convincingly, navigating the lender’s policy exceptions.

Outcome

BrokerCo’s expertise secured Rebecca and Tom a competitive full doc home loan, facilitating their home purchase and transition.

Conclusion

This case highlights the necessity of skilled brokers in non-standard income situations. BrokerCo’s proficiency and effective communication with lenders were instrumental in Rebecca and Tom’s homeownership achievement despite initial hurdles.
