Is Your Income Qualified?

Sometimes doctors possess unique income patterns that not every lender may accommodate. This generally pertains to doctors who have income from Medicare guarantees, contracting, self-employment, or partnerships. Doctors often find themselves working as contractors or subcontractors due to the fluctuating workloads in hospitals or private practices, being “on call” or on a locum basis due to the varying needs of medical centres.

The nature of your working arrangement is crucial – possessing an Australian Business Number (ABN) and a registered business name does not traditionally classify you as a contractor. You could still be considered an employee for taxation if you invoice for your
services. Moreover, having a full-time position in a practice and a contract role as a medical specialist in a hospital is also a possibility. To have a successful application, demonstrating proof of stable and regular income is essential.

Eligible medical practitioners can avail themselves of considerable benefits, such as interest rate reductions, the possibility to borrow up to 100%, and up to 95% Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) waivers with doctor home loans. However, these perks vary across lenders.

For medical professionals who are eligible, securing approval for a home loan with no deposit and a 95% LMI waiver is attainable.
