Using your property to raise capital is risky for both the financier and for the applicant.


A clear letter of offer outlining fees, conditions, loan terms, exit strategy will need to be signed by the company director/s and reviewed by an independent solicitor.

This type of finance is often referred to as ‘Bridging’ finance (short term funding, with a clear exit strategy).

    In simple terms, a caveat loan is a ‘short term’ First or Second mortgage, where the loan is secured against a house or any real estate property owned by the borrower.

    The borrower must have an ABN and the loan purpose must be business related. The Loan to Valuation (LVR) maximum on a preferred residential property in e.g Metropolitan, is typically up to 75%.

    A caveat requires minimal paperwork, adverse credit is accepted as you are leveraging the strength of the proposed ‘security’. As a result of the lender risk, interest rates & Fees are priced accordingly.

    The loan terms are short in length and may not allow early pay outs during the capitalised interest period. Where interest is ‘added’ to the loan amount.

    Most funders will offer the borrower the choice of interest only repayments meaning you will receive a higher amount or interest capitalised.
