There are compelling reasons for members of the legal profession to partner with a home loan expert.

As a member of the legal profession you may be entitled to a variety of money-saving benefits on your next home or investment property loan. Lenders don't tend to advertise these advantages but as a home loan expert, your Mortgage Choice broker can explain what you may be eligible for.

Potential savings on lenders mortgage insurance

If you borrow more than 80 per cent of a property's value, the lender will normally ask you to pay lenders mortgage insurance (LMI). This is a type of insurance that protects the lender in the event the borrower defaults on the loan (LMI), and importantly, the one-off premium can amount to tens of thousands of dollars.

As a member of the legal profession, you are regarded by lenders are presenting a lower risk of default than many other types of borrowers. This means some lenders will extend savings on LMI – and even waive the cost altogether for certain legal professionals.

The downside is that not all lenders offer this benefit. Your local Mortgage Choice broker knows which lenders offer LMI savings to legal professionals, and we can undertake the necessary negotiations on your behalf to help you cut the cost of LMI. It's a benefit that is definitely worth working towards.

Exclusive professional packages

You may not see them advertised, but many lenders offer professional package loans to members of the legal profession. These packages offer a number of attractive inclusions, many of which can be tailored to your needs, though the main point of appeal is substantial rate discounts and increased borrowing power. Collectively, these benefits give you a greater opportunity to buy your preferred home or investment property backed by exclusive savings.
