  1. 2 more lenders have anounced that they are now accepting 5% deposit mortgages instead of 10% that they did require. Is this the start of more flexible criteria? Time will tell! Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
  2. Following the Federal Bank rate rise of 0.25% for the 3rd month running, the base rate is now 3.75%. The big 4 banks, Westpac, NAB, Commonwealth, ANZ and all their subsiduaries hold something like 90% market share of the AU mortgage market!! In Sept & October the lenders passed on the full 0.25% onto their rates yet this month, even though the rate has gone up this month by just 0.25% some of the banks have increased by more!!!! Westpac +0.45% Commonwealth + 0.37% ANZ + 0.35% NAB only increased theirs by the 0.25%. Do the big 4 banks have too much power??? I think so...
  3. Hiya, Was just wondering if anyone could shed any light on mortgage lenders insurance. We are looking at getting a mortgage but dont have enough dosh for a 20% deposit. Thing is we are on a 475 (not to be confused with 457) which is the provisional visa (Sponsored by Tassie) for 2-3 years prior to PR being granted. Does anyone know if it is possible to geet the LMI when not PR? Would love to hear from lots of people who have managed to get this :wink: cheeeeeeeeeeeeers CC x
  4. Alistair Darling is considering helping fund new mortgages to aid stricken mortgage and housing markets, it has been reported. The Chancellor is said to be looking at proposals due to be mooted on Tuesday in Sir James Crosby's review of mortgage finance that could widen the scope of the Bank of England's £50 billion rescue package. The Treasury may seek to free up the log jam in mortgage funding markets by allowing banks to trade in securities backed by new mortgages in return for more easily tradable Government bills, according to the Financial Times. The scheme currently applies only to old mortgage assets held before the start of the year and lenders are anxious that the existing package is not enough to ease the deepening credit crisis. Sir James - the former chief executive of Halifax Bank of Scotland - is also understood to be working on proposals for a "kite-marking" system for high-quality mortgage-backed securities to instil confidence after the credit crunch devastated wholesale funding markets. But the Crosby review will hold off from making final recommendations until the autumn, with the Chancellor not understood to be planning any announcements until the Pre-Budget Report. Lenders have already voiced their concerns at the delay in taking further action to kick-start the mortgage market. The Council of Mortgage Lenders said earlier this month that the Government must "act swiftly" to resolve the mortgage drought. It warned that mortgage lending was set to halve this year, with the lack of financing expected to further hit the UK's property market and housebuilding sector. However, plans to extend the Bank of England's so-called Special Liquidity Scheme may meet with opposition from the central bank. Bank Governor Mervyn King said on launching the SLS in April that it was designed to "increase the liquidity of the banking system as a whole" in order to protect the wider economy. He said its aim was not to restore the mortgage markets to the "excessive lending" seen before the credit crunch hit last summer and that it would stop short of covering new mortgages as it did not want to be seen to be propping up the market. Sir James, who was in charge of HBOS between 2001 and 2006, was charged with leading the mortgage review in April. He is heading a team of outside experts and officials from the Bank of England and Financial Services Authority:biglaugh:
