DFS are caveat lending specialists. We thrive on solving difficult finance problems for property developers, investors and business owners.

What are Caveat Loans?

Caveat loans are a short term business finance solution.

Generally, these loans are for a maximum term of 24 months. however, they can be extended.

A caveat loan gives you fast access to funding and is secured against a property.

Utilising the equity you have in the security property, a caveat loan is quicker and simpler to acquire than a traditional business loan.

Paperwork is minimal and caveat finance can be approved and settled in just a few days.

No credit check is necessary most of the time.

In comparison, the assessment and settlement processes from mainstream lenders are usually document-heavy and can take weeks or even months to settle.

If you need cash and have equity in a property, DFS can arrange a caveat loan for you.

What Can You Use a Caveat Loan For?

You can use a caveat loan for a wide range of business purposes, including:

  • Purchase real estate.
  • Property development, renovations and improvements.
  • Business cash flow.
  • Purchase a business.
  • Pay outstanding taxes to the ATO.
  • Consolidate and/or pay off existing debt.
  • Almost any business purpose.

How are Caveat Loans Secured?

A caveat loan is secured against an existing property.

When a caveat is put on a property, the property can’t be used as security against any other finance.

It also can’t be sold.

This lender’s interest in the property is released once the caveat loan is repaid.

The loan-to-value ratio (LVR) can be up to 100% for a private caveat loan arranged by DFS.

This means you can borrow up to what your property is actually worth, not just 50 to 90% of its value.

For example, if your property is valued at (or has equity of) $1 million, you can potentially borrow up to $1 million with caveat lending.

How Can Caveat Loans Help Australian Business Owners?

People often don’t have time to wait for a bank loan.

Also, many people are simply asset rich and cash poor.

Despite having sufficient equity on a property, a lot of business owners in Australia don’t have proven business profitability or cash flow.

This makes it difficult for them to meet the strict lending criteria that banks require for business loans.

What’s the Difference Between 100% Caveat Loans and a Second Mortgage?

A caveat loan is different to a second mortgage (which allows you to tap into equity you have in your property).

Second mortgage lenders have stricter lending criteria because the lender who provided the first mortgage has priority if the borrower defaults on repayments.

Caveat loans on the other hand are more straight-forward and faster than 1st or 2nd mortgages.

A caveat loan property can’t be collateral for any other finance.

This restriction simplifies the lending criteria, making it easier to gain approval for this type of short term business loan.

Caveat loans settle faster as a result.

Case Study Melbourne – Using Caveat Finance to Buy a B&B

One of our recent clients in Melbourne had a residential property in worth $1.4 million.

$625,000 was owing on their mortgage, meaning that they had $775,000 in equity.

They were running a sound recording studio and wanted to buy a bed and breakfast business just outside of Melbourne.

They needed a short-term loan of $200,000 to complete the purchase.

Their exit strategy was to pay off the short-term loan by refinancing with a major lender within 24 months.

They completed a caveat loan application with us at DFS over the phone, offering their property as security.

We had an approval and a letter of offer back to them the same day, subject to the valuation of their property.

This approval enabled them to make an offer on the B&B premises to secure the opportunity.

Our valuation of the client’s property was completed within two days and we provided the funds to go ahead with their B&B purchase within three days.

Case Study Sydney – Using a Caveat Loan to Buy a Medical Centre

Another one of our recent clients owned both their own home and an investment property.

An opportunity arose to buy a medical centre.

They needed to move quickly to beat a competitor from buying it. However, the business bank loan approval process often takes at least 3-4 weeks.

It was time that the client simply didn’t have if they were going to capitalise on this opportunity.

Private lending via caveat loan was their only option for a fast approval and settlement.

They contacted us here at DFS and we arranged the finance they needed within days.

They are now the proud owners of a Sydney medical centre.
