About Low Doc Home Loans
‘Low doc’ is short for low documentation home loan. It is suitable for the self employed and anyone else who is unable to provide full financial statements or other evidence of income when applying for a loan.
This type of loan is a flexible financial solution that can help you obtain a mortgage if you are a business owner, contractor or freelancer. With a low-doc loan, you have the option of ‘self-certifying’ your income without needing to provide proof of employment as you would with most other loan types. However, you still have to have a good credit history and this will be assessed.
Interest rates and repayment amounts also tend to be higher to compensate the lender for the increased risk.
