Home Loan FAQs: What deposit do I require?

February 10, 2014

Most banks want to see 10% of the value of the home, but there are a few lenders now only needing 5% of the value of the home. 

The savings in most cases must be held in your savings account for 3 months. On top of that you will need the fees, which are made up of Property Stamp Duty, Bank fees and Government Registration fees.  2% of the Lenders Mortgage Insurance fee can be added onto the loan with some Lenders.


However, if you are a First Home Buyer you will not pay stamp duty on a home up to the value of $500,000.
