Non-Resident Mortgages

We can help you get approved by building a strong application with the right lender.

Every year thousands of foreign nationals, Australian expats and temporary residents decide to buy a home or investment property in Australia.

This section is designed to help you understand how the buying process works and how we can help you to apply for a non-resident mortgage in Australia.

What you need to know!

Firstly you should read about how to buy property in Australia, followed by the rules for foreigners investing in Australia.
Note: You may need approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB), depending on your circumstances.

Can you get a home loan or investment loan?

There are different home loan types available for different types of borrowers, whether you are a citizen of New Zealand, a foreign citizen working in Australia or a foreign citizen living overseas.

How much can I borrow?

Most people buying real estate in Australia are able to borrow 80% of the property value.

In some cases it is possible to borrow up to a maximum of 95%. However, this depends on where you are living, if you are an Australian citizen or not, as well as the terms of your current visa.

To find out if you could be eligible to borrow over 80% LVR, speak to our specialist mortgage brokers on 1800 771 900  or enquire online and one of our mortgage brokers will contact you to discuss your situation.

What are the features of non-resident mortgages?

The great news is that some Australian banks now offer the same home loan features and interest rates for non-residents as they do for normal borrowers.

Although the features vary depending on the lender, our mortgage brokers can usually find you a suitable loan that has flexible policies for non-resident borrowers and meets your requirements.

Lending policy for non-resident home loans differs from bank to bank.

As a general rule, the banks take one of three different views on applications from non-residents:
