    FAQs for Private Lending in Australia

    Any cash accessed through private lenders needs to be for business purposes. A business purpose can include activities such as:

    • Accessing working capital and cash flow.
    • Purchasing a business.
    • Starting a business.
    • Paying off business debt (including ATO tax debt).
    • Property development.

    Private loans are secured by real estate property, which means the loan amount is based on the value of the security property. The way in which the asset is secured will depend on the type of private loan. For example, with a second mortgage, the private lenders have a legal claim over the property after the first mortgage lender. However, with a caveat loan, a caveat is placed on the property title restricting what the owner can do with the title, but they do not have a legal claim as they would with a mortgage. This is actually the reason private loans can be so fast — a caveat can be placed on the property title in a matter of hours, so the funds can be released promptly.

    The interest rate will depend on your exact circumstances and the private lenders chosen.

    Most private lenders will expect the loan repayments to be repaid within 3-12 months. This term issued by your private lenders can sometimes be extended beyond 12 months.

    If you’re looking to purchase a property before the sale of your existing property is complete, private lenders can offer a bridging loan. This helps to cover the cash flow gap that exists with misaligned settlement dates.
