The non bank mortgage brokers at OneStop Financial Solutions regularly work with a number of non-bank lenders and have years of experience in the alternative lending sector.

It’s not always possible to get a loan with the bank, low deposits, less than ideal credit or self-employment can be a few things that make getting a home loan from a main stream bank difficult.

This is where non-bank lenders come in to play. While the process is much the same, non bank lenders can be more lenient and take a different approach to your normal banks, as they are not governed by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

$6 million in non bank mortgages were registered in February 2024.

Non-bank lending institutions play an increasingly significant role for New Zealander’s buying homes. According to the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, approximately 3% of home loans registered are with non bank lenders.

Our dedicated mortgage brokers are focused on securing non bank loans for our clients who traditionally face roadblocks on the path to homeownership.

These include:

  • Low Deposits – We get creative and find solutions for potential homeowners with limited savings. Our case study is a perfect example of this.
  • Credit Challenges – A less than perfect credit score doesn’t mean owning a home is out of reach. There are options, and we can help.
  • Self-Employed – Being your own boss shouldn’t disqualify you from buying a home.
  • Rejection Fatigue – If you’re disheartened and drained from repeated rejections, we’ll provide you with a fresh perspective and new possibilities.

Let’s create a roadmap towards approval with a non bank loan. Talk to us today.

Our Non Bank Mortgage Brokers Have Helped Secure Loans For:

High LVR Lending

LVR’s or loan to value ratios are a common term thrown around when talking about home loans. This is a rule implemented by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and dictates and limits the banks lending on purchases with less that a 20% deposit. Banks are only able to use a certain amount of available lending for those low deposit loans. This means banks will usually only consider existing customers, if you are unsuccessful in getting a low deposit loan from your own bank second-tier or non-bank lenders can be an excellent alternative.

Self Employed Lending

If you’re a business owner, it can be difficult to find a bank and secure a loan without 2 years of solid financials. However, this isn’t always possible so instead of letting time tick by, explore your alternative options. At OneStop we have been successful in getting home loans for those self employed for less that 2 years with non-bank lenders instead.  There are still a few key requirements, being:

  • Must have been trading for at least 6 months and have the relevant experience or qualifications (not a brand new business in a brand new industry)
  • Maximum 80% lending
  • Income must be within typical industry limits

Less than Ideal Credit

Having bad credit or defaults on your credit report can hinder your chances in getting a home loan. Banks are typically pretty harsh when it comes to poor credit history and it usually reduces your chances of getting lending through them. We understand that mistakes happen, or some things are out of our control and non-bank lenders typically have a more favourable approach when it comes to credit history, making them a great option when the main banks don’t come to the party.
