Purchase Price v Valuation Price



From: Mel G

I bought an off the plan property in June 2001 and it will be coming up for settlement in about May this year. I am currently doing some research on finance and am finding that banks are willing to lend 90% based on the VALUATION price of the property but the mortgage insurers will only lend based on the PURCHASE price. Has anyone been able to get a 90% loan based on the VALUATION price and if so, where and how???

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Mel

You can think the push the OTO envelope proponets to the limit crowd for this.

LMI and OTP has become like a clam.

Where there is not an OTP issue involved you can get val over contract even with LMI if its a favourable Purchase (just did one this week.)

The only solution that I can offer is to finance at 80 % of val, and use a lender that does not have large exit fees. Then refinance to 90/95 % 3 months after settlement, with another lender.
