Will you Accept A Leasehold Property or Crown Lease for a Loan?

What is a term deposit?

At Mortgage House, we accept different forms of collateral to secure financing for a home loan. Among the alternative forms for collateral that we accept are property titles. Among the titles that we’ll consider is the leasehold property title under ACT or Crown lease. 

To be sure that we’re making a good business decision for all parties, we’ll explore the details of the lease and title. A Crown lease tells us how allowed property use, property maintenance requirements, and the Crown’s right to take back the property. 

We want to ensure that there is no breach of contract before accepting the leasehold as collateral. Crown leases are granted for 99 years. Our loan specialists take a look at the leasehold’s timeline to ensure that there’s enough time left on the title. 

The ACT Government allows transferring the title, but we double-check that there is no transfer restriction or others. Our lending team also evaluates the property’s value. It must exceed 20% of the new property’s value to be a viable down payment alternative. We take a look at future property value forecasts since land and real estate values tend to fluctuate.
