How do Caveat Loans work?
Caveat Loans in Australia still remain a mystery to many, so if you’re unsure what a Caveat Loan facility is, or even how it works, don’t worry, you’re not alone.
A Caveat Loan is created when a caveat is placed on an existing property to be used as security for a short term loan.
You may think that securing a loan with a property automatically creates a second mortgage, but the fundamental difference between a Caveat Loan and a mortgage is the lending criteria and loan terms.
What is the loan term of a Caveat Loan?
Typically (as you’re probably aware), a mortgage can have a term of up to 30 years, whereas a Caveat Loan is usually only up to 36 months.
How are Caveat Loans secured?
Another key difference between second mortgages and a Caveat Loan is that with Caveat Loans, the caveat is a form of encumberment on the title of the security property and sits behindany existing mortgage, meaning that consent from your bank isn’t required.
More importantly, a second mortgage will generally have much stricter lending criteria because whoever the lender of the first mortgage is, holds priority if you happen to default on your repayments.
While the caveat is active over the property, it can’t be used as security against another debt or sold.
The lender’s interest ends as soon as you have repaid the loan and is done so quickly and easily with minimal paperwork.
How much can I borrow under a Caveat Loan?
The loan amount depends on how much equity you hold in the existing real estate property.
Diverse Funding Solutions can lend you up to 80%+ of your existing property value!
Of course, given that Caveat Loans are only short term in nature, they’re great for lending just enough to get you through any tight cash flow spaces.
That being said, the ability to borrow up to 80%+ of your property’s value means you can rest assured you will have sufficient funding and are not restricted to the traditional 50%-75% that other lenders are prepared to lend for a business purpose.
Who can get a Caveat Loan?
Caveat Loans are obviously only available to those who hold an existing property.
Due to being one of the many business finance solutions offered by Diverse Funding Solutions, we also require you to be an ABN holder.
NO ABN OR COMPANY?? No worries!
Diverse Funding Solutions can now get you a caveat loan without one!
How can a short term Caveat Loan help my cash flow?

Some of our clients have used one of our fast Caveat Loans to help with:
Preparing a home for sale
Looking to take advantage of the housing price boom?
A Caveat Loan can help provide short-term funds to prepare your property for sale, including urgent renovations.
Property buyers truly have the upper hand in the current climate, so why not stand out from the crowd with immaculate presentation of your property using a caveat loan?
Funding between a property sale and purchase
In today’s market, it’s common that the settlement dates between buying your next property and selling your existing one won’t perfectly align.
Short term caveat loans can help bridge the financial gap between purchase and sale, meaning you can strike while the investment property iron is hot.
Paying tax bills
With COVID’s disruption to business, it’s little wonder some business owners will struggle to pay their tax bill immediately.
A caveat loan can assist in providing the funds needed to cover your ATO expense until funds arrive in the months afterwards.
With the ATO’s ability to report overdue tax debts to credit reporting bureaus, it’s essential to keep on top of your payments.
Taking advantage of opportunities
Taking advantage of opportunities when they present themselves can be one of the positives to come out of COVID’s impact, particularly if you run a small business.
Unfortunately, invoice lag can affect your ability to fund the opportunities as they arise.
Other small business loans don’t always come through with funding quick enough, whereas business Caveat Loans can provide funds in as quickly as 24 hours.
This means you can take advantage of large stock orders offered with bulk discounts, purchase new equipment that’s gone on sale or even hire that golden employee your business has been crying out for!
