What Is A Low Doc Loan?
A Low Doc Loan is a loan where you do not have to provide documentation (e.g. tax returns) as evidence of your income. You simply sign a statutory declaration as part of the Low Doc Loan process declaring the amount of income you have received, and that you are telling the truth.
Does The Bank Check Your Income?
The Bank does not check your income in a Low Doc Loan application. They accept the amount you have self declared as true and correct.
How Is A Low Doc Loan Different To A Normal Loan?
A Low Doc Loan is exactly the same as a normal loan other than you self declare you income. All other parts of the application process are exactly the same. A Low Doc Loan can be easier and quicker to secure because the Bank does not have to assess your income.
Is A Low Doc Loan More Expensive Than A Normal Loan?
The interest rate for a Low Doc Loan used to be a couple of percent higher than normal loans. But, things have changed. These days, there are great Low Doc Loans with low interest rates and good terms.
