Property - Current Lending Restrictions

In 2016 the reserve bank introduced new loan LVR (loan to value ratio) restrictions.

In summary this means that:

For an owner-occupier residential property the LVR is set at 80% -
this means a 20% deposit will be required (with maximum 80% borrowing).

For residential property investors the LVR is set at 60% - meaning a 40% deposit will be required (maximum 60% borrowing and is generally the same for commercial property).

In some cases there may be exemptions for new builds and first home buyers.

While existing lending will generally be okay, if looking to top up a loan the new LVR rules are likely to apply.

"Company-X relies on DB Chartered for all the usual accounting stuff but way more than that we see them as partners in our business.

DB Chartered take initiative and help get stuff done and make things happen. For example I love the charts of business performance delivered even without request as part of their service. That's DB Chartered taking initiative and saying "Here you should be monitoring these business success indicators".

They are an essential part of the advisory team developing overall strategy, growth funding, tactical and operational decisions. Having someone else focused on your business like it's their own and sharing in the thought leadership to success is invaluable. You can't ask for more than that."
