PROMOTED FEATURES


Effective for new loans lodged from 16 September, Advantedge’s changes include:

  • Accepting granny flats and room rental as rental income, with rental income shading from holiday rentals also decreasing from 40 per cent to 20 per cent.
  • Requiring brokers to capture any expected costs associated with childcare for customers who are about to commence or are currently on parental leave.
  • Requiring brokers to provide “meaningful” details of a customer’s strategy on how they will service their loan during any leave period, and ensure it appears “reasonable” – the change applies in instances where a customer is on unpaid extended leave but will return to work and where their income is being used as part of a serviceability assessment.

Further, effective from Monday, 23 September, Advantedge will also extend the acceptable verification document period from 60 days to 90 days, making eligible all verification documents such as payslips and statements issued up to quarterly.

Documents that exceed the 90-day period will not be accepted, with the submission checklist to be updated to reflect the change.
