Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) Explained

Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is an insurance policy that covers a mortgage lender against the risk of default. In Australia, lenders typically take out LMI policies when a borrower has less than 20% deposit or equity in a property. This insurance is added to your monthly payments, but it can be refinanced in the future when your equity has increased.

Get Your Finances in Order Before You Start House Hunting

Before you start your home search, it’s essential to get your finances in order. This includes getting pre-approval for a home loan and setting aside a separate savings account for your deposit. Additionally, it’s important to budget for other costs associated with buying a home, such as stamp duty, legal fees, and inspections.
