A Message from the MFAA CEO

Today, the Mortgage Broking Industry Group* (MBIG) has launched The Value of Mortgage Broking, a report by Deloitte Access Economics.

This report demonstrates the value that our industry brings to consumers, lenders and the Australian economy, by driving competition and delivering greater choice and valuable services to the Australians who need them most.

The Value of Mortgage Broking report was commissioned by MBIG to help all Australians - from financial regulators to everyday home buyers - better understand the role and value that mortgage brokers bring to the Australian market. Given the ongoing scrutiny on the industry during 2018, it is critical that we have a credible and independent report that clearly outlines the importance of the broker channel.

we have a credible and independent report that clearly outlines the importance of the broker channel.

You can click here to view the report, however, the key findings of the report comprise:

  • Mortgage brokers strengthen the entire Australian mortgage lending industry by fostering competition and therefore supporting all Australian home buyers and investors.
  • The mortgage broker channel has contributed to a fall in lenders' net interest margins of more than three percentage points over the past 30 years.
  • More than 90 per cent of customers are happy with their mortgage broker's performance.
  • Mortgage brokers arrange more than half of all home loans each year, and this number continues to grow.
  • Mortgage brokers, on average, have 13.8 years of industry experience.
  • Mortgage brokers drive competition by improving access to lenders that are not major banks or their affiliates. The share for these lenders increased from 21.4 per cent in 2013 to 27.9 per cent in just four years.
  • The average mortgage broker has access to 34 lenders and uses an average of 10 lenders on their panel, bringing more choice to Australian home buyers.
  • Three in ten mortgages arranged by mortgage brokers are for customers in rural or regional areas, improving access to home lending for rural and regional Australians.
  • The mortgage broking industry contributes $2.9 billion to the Australian economy each year, supporting more than 27,100 (full-time equivalent) jobs.
  • Brokers that are sole traders earn an average income after costs and before tax of $86,417.
  • Brokers depend on strong relationships - more than 70 per cent of mortgage brokers' business is referred from existing customers.

These findings clearly demonstrate the value and service you are delivering to your customers - a testament to the hard work and dedication of the broking industry across the country.

Please Note:

  • For established houses & townhouses we still consider up to 80% LVR (subject to servicing and postcode) & for established apartments the max LVR is 70%. If the security property is less than 2 years old or If the property is off the plan. Then regardless if it's a house or unit, then the LVR drops to the max LVR of 60%. (this is a guide only)
  • There is a 20% (liquidity requirement) for RESI SMSF. where at least 20% of the fund balance must be retained post property settlement (please note this is not required, where the SMSF already holds property or if it's a refinance).

EXAMPLE: If the fund has $100K in it, $20K must be retained in other assets and up to $80K can be used to settle the property. If fund balance is $200K then $40K must be kept in other assets and $160K can be used towards property settlement and so on.

  • If the any of the clients are over 60yrs old on a SMSF product, then we need to see 40% liquidity and a copy of a S.O.A

Residential SuperCredit Checklist:

  • Balance of Super
  • Last 2 years Contributions
  • Contract of Sale
  • Copy of Trust Deed
  • If the SMSF Trust has been operating longer than 2 years we will need the last 2 years of lodged Tax returns, otherwise if it is less than 2 years we will only need whatever they can provide (for example. It's been operating for 1.5 years- 1 years lodged return is suffice).

How our assessment of income is derived:

  1. Rental income (80%).
  2. Super contributions (lower of the last two years, 85% of the lower amount).
  3. 3% of the remaining assets in the superfund.
  4. SMSF's are required to have at least 20% of their assets invested outside of the SMSF property. The formula used to calculate this is as follows - Funds to complete/Super Balance needs to be <.80% for us to proceed.
  5. Applicants will need to service the loan on their personal income as well. If not, an increase of 50 bps will applied to the indicative interest rate.


Applications must be lodged electronically, however I have attached checklist to assist collecting all required documentation.
