Low documentation home loans
Low Documentation, or Low Doc, home loans are loans which require very little or no income documentation to get approval. The less documentation you provide, the higher the interest rate on the loan is likely to be.

Low doc home loans are typically used by borrowers who are self-employed, have variable income or do not have tax returns or financial reports with which to prove serviceability. You may be able to use a low doc loan for residential, investment or business purchases.
Major lenders will usually insist on a Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) of at least 80 per cent. Most lenders will also require you to take out Lenders Mortgage Insurance for a low-doc loan with an LVR greater than 60 per cent.
Prior to the sub-prime crisis in the US, these types of loans were expanding to offer a wider range of features, however in recent times this area of the market has become somewhat stricter so check with your local mortgage broker which features are available for the loan you are looking at. Despite this, low-doc home loans are a popular product and you may still be able to access a low-doc loan with a fixed or variable rate, at competitive interest rates and with a range of features.
