Jesse asks the APIA Expert Panel:
Can I buy two properties on the one mortgage?
Lena Li, ANZ Mobile Mortage Manager, Answers
Generally speaking, we lend base on an acceptable lending ratio and the type of security we hold.
The lower your existing lending ratio the more chance you can top up on an existing security to buy the second property. Furthermore, we do not necessarily have to take your second property as security. The deliberation of a top-up will be on a case-by-case basis. If you want to borrow over 80% on your existing property, you will need to meet the criteria of over 80% lending but this can be assessed accordingly. You may also put the whole lending into a flexible form of loan in some cases depending on individual needs and individual statement of position.
