Understanding Alt Doc Home Loans
Alt doc home loans (also known as low doc loans) are a very flexible lending solution for self-employed people, property investors, people who do not work regular jobs or for new Australian families who have just moved to Australia. This loan type has taken off in recent years to assist people who have been rejected by mainstream lenders/credit providers.
Alt doc home loans have allowed thousands of Australians to access a home loan. This loan is specifically suitable for people who have assets as well as income, but cannot provide adequate financial statement or tax return as documented evidence of income. Here is a list of people who are suitable for the loan:
Self-employed people who may only pay themselves a standard wage and run their business in a way that means they fall into a lower tax bracket to avoid income tax
Property investors who may have varied income from month to month and from year to year
Contractors and seasoned workers who don’t work regular jobs, and
New Australians families who have just moved to Australia and may not have payslips or tax returns from the work they have been doing since they arrived in Australia
