If you thought choosing a property was difficult, just wait until you have to choose the home loan that will pay for it.

Here’s a checklist of features to look for before you choose a home loan:

1. Do I need Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?
If you have less than a 20% deposit, you may need to pay for lenders mortgage insurance. Lenders Mortgage Insurance is a premium payable by you the borrower that protects the lender (financial institution) against potential losses if you are unable to repay your loan. Learn more about Lenders Mortgage Insurance.

2. How much of a deposit do I have?
Different lenders offer loans with different Loan to Value ratios (LVRs). The LVR is the percentage of the loan amount that you are able to borrow from the lender.

3. What fees apply to the loan?
There may be several fees charged on different features of a home loan, including:

  • Application fees (also called establishment fee)
  • Property valuation fees
  • Ongoing fees such as annual fees
  • Late payment fee (also called default fee) (if you make a required repayment later than the due date)
  • Early exit fee (if you repay your home loan in full and close the loan before the end of the loan term)
  • Discharge fee (also called termination fees or settlement fees) (charged when you pay out your mortgage in full)
  • Break fees (also called break costs) (if you switch loans during a fixed rate term)
  • Redraw fees (if you use a redraw facility)
  • Account-keeping fee for offset account (if you have an offset account attached to your loan)
  • Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI) (if you only have a small deposit on your loan)

4. What is the interest rate on the loan?
Lenders will typically display a current/advertised interest rate and a comparison rate.
The advertised rate generally is just the interest rate, and it does not include the cost of any fees or charges.
Meanwhile, the comparison rate calculates what the cost on that home loan product would be for a certain loan amount over a certain loan period, taking into account most fees and charges (Canstar’s comparison rates are based on $150,000 loan over 25 years). In addition, some lenders will have a honeymoon rate or introductory offer interest rate.

5. What’s the best type of loan for me?
Another home loan feature to look for is the decision between fixed or variable. You will need to weigh up the pros and cons for your individual circumstances to get the low-down on the benefits of both types of loan.

6. Does the loan have features important to me?
While interest rate, fees, deposit and repayment amount are important things to consider when taking out a mortgage, you should also check out what features are on offer in a home loan that you might be considering. Some home loan features to look for include:

  • An offset account
  • A redraw facility
  • Ability to make extra repayments
  • Ability to make lump sum repayments
  • Ability to split the loan between fixed and variable
  • Ability to get home loan pre-approval
The factor that will have by far the biggest impact on the overall cost of your loan is the interest rate, so ensure that you are not paying an uncompetitive rate.

Investment Loans

An investment loan is a type of home loan that someone takes out to buy an investment property. It is a mortgage solution for those who want to buy a property and rent it out to receive income from it, but can’t afford to buy the property without a loan.

Many things about investment loans are different to how standard home loans work because they have stricter eligibility requirements. Investment loans often require a higher loan-to-valuation ratio (LVR), meaning investors need to raise a larger deposit before applying for a loan. They also have a slightly higher interest rate on average than residential home loans do.

Expenses that you make for your investment property can be claimed as tax deductions to reduce your taxable rental income while you’re renting it out, and your capital gains tax if you sell the property. The tax deductions you can claim for an investment property include:
There may be several fees charged on different features of a home loan, including:

  • Interest on the investment loan
  • Home and contents insurance and landlord insurance
  • Real estate agent’s commission
  • Maintenance costs
  • Council rates
  • Decline in value of depreciating assets
  • Construction costs (“capital works”) Travel expenses to the property to do an inspection, maintenance or repairs

SMSF Loans

An SMSF loan is a home loan used by a self-managed super fund (SMSF) to buy investment property. The returns on the investment – whether that’s rental income or capital gains – are funnelled back into the super fund, increasing your retirement savings.

It’s worth noting rental income cannot be disposed of by a trustee or given as a pre-retirement benefit to a member of the fund – it can only be used to increase the retirement savings that will eventually be paid out to members once they retire.

Further, the property cannot be acquired from, lived in or (except in very limited circumstances) rented out to a fund member or any of their related parties.

Investing in property within superannuation is not as straightforward as investing outside the superannuation environment. All investments need to be in the best interests of fund members and in accordance with the laws around SMSF borrowing.

Bare Trust

Bare Trust is typically a Trust established to allow a SMSF to purchase assets that will be “geared”.
Regulations require that the property acquired with borrowed monies must be held by a bare trust with the SMSF being the beneficiary of the trust.
The bare trust is merely the registered holder of the property until the loan is repaid. The SMSF will receive rental income from the lessee and will pay interest to the lender.
If and when the loan is repaid the legal ownership of the investment property will revert to the trustee of the SMSF.
The trustee of the SMSF cannot be identical (the same) as the trustee of the bare trust, this may in some instances require a corporate trustee for both entities, again dependent on the lenders requirements.
When a SMSF decides to buy the Property, the trustees of the bare trust enter into a contract of sale to purchase a property NOT the trustee of the SMSF, as the trustee of the bare trust is the entity as the registered owner upon completion of the property settlement.

Will Trust

Testamentary/Will Trusts is established according to instructions in a will and comes into existence when that person passes away.
Rather than the deceased person’s assets going directly to beneficiaries, the assets are held in trust on behalf of those beneficiaries. Funds are then distributed according to the deceased’s rules and conditions.
A testamentary trust can protect the assets a beneficiary may receive in the event of bankruptcy, business lawsuit, or relationship breakdown.
