Case study A- Tom and Steve Broad


Congratulations, you have just been appointed by George and Mildred as the new consultant to handle the extra work. Whilst your major focus is to build the strategic relationships you are also expected to build your own client base using your own connections and networks.

Two brothers, Tom and Steve Broad have approached you with their desire to jointly purchase two apartments in the same building. They want to purchase them as rental properties. The building has 12 apartments. The units have 80% permanent tenants in place and the remaining 20% are used for holiday rentals. The location is a highly sought after area and all holiday periods are fully booked.

The brothers have invested together before and have experience in buying and selling property. They have sold all their other investment properties and the units will be their only investment until they can identify another opportunity. The cash at bank is mostly from the sales of other investments.

In a suitable format, document the process that is required for them to purchase the two units as their investment properties, establishing a joint loan in the brother's names. You should also include a selection of lenders that will consider this style of borrowing.

In developing your report you should cover the following:

1. The parties to the loan including any opportunities or constraints that could impact on their application

11. The state revenue requirements

12. Which lenders may also require a personal guarantee from Steve'sspouse

13. The maximum LVR to the consumer

14. A summary of all fees and charges - including those for setup and those of the lender.

Task 3a - Implement complex loan structures
