"Impaired credit history should not prevent you from buying your own home."
If you fall outside traditional lending policies due to previous credit problems, income issues or are recently self-employed, the first thing to remember is, here in Melbourne, we can help. Most lenders charge a slightly higher interest rate and even a higher fee structure on these home loans than for traditional loans because credit impaired borrowers are regarded as higher risk.
Our non-conforming range of home loan products cater for clients who:
- Have a bad credit rating due to defaults or judgments;
- Self employed customers that are unable to provide a solid two years financial history;
- Have employment and income instability;
- Have been rejected by major banks and lenders for previous enquiries on home loans;
- New migrant/non-resident in Australia;
- Customers over the age of 55;
- Are in arrears with their mortgage, car loans, personal loans or credit cards, or;
- Have been or are still bankrupt.
We recommend you order your credit file free of charge by visiting http://www.mycreditfile.com.au/ or by phoning Veda Advantage on (02) 9464 6000. This will help us to provide you with your real options. The good news is, even with minor credit impairment you may still be eligible for a tradiional home loan.
