What Are Private Caveat Loans?

Caveat loans are a type of private finance or mortgage lending product that can often be referred to by different terminologies depending on who you speak with.

Some of these terms might include solicitor loans, non-bank loans, private 2nd mortgages, mezzanine loans to name just a few.

But regardless of what jargon is used to describe the term "caveat loans"... will in some way still be related to a private finance product outside mainstream banks.

Our private lending facilities provide legitimate and viable access to structured capital for asset-backed borrowers that require commercial loan amounts anywhere from $50K up to $100M.


Private caveat loans do not require tax returns or financial records, and there is no proof of income needed, best of all a borrower's credit rating is irrelevant. 


This can be a very user-friendly option for the self-employed business person who's been extremely busy and hasn't had a chance to complete their end-of-year financials both personal or company for a variety of legitimate reasons. 

Private business loans, including short-term caveat loans, 1st, and 2nd mortgages can be an extremely useful lending alternative when paired with a sensible exit strategy, or at least until a borrower's circumstances have come back into shape.

Private Caveat Lending allows a borrower legitimate access to rapid capital by leveraging the equity within an existing property located in Australia for a variety of viable alternatives including lines of credit, bridging loans, home loans, private residential or commercial mortgages and refinancing. Funds can also be used as an instant cash-out facility in circumstances of urgency.

caveat loans can bankroll developments and construction sites, as a short-term business overdraft funding to consolidate business tax debts, and to purchase stock in the interim of the waiting for debtors to pay or while refinancing a mortgage.

With the use of our 2nd registered mortgage caveat loans, funding can be approved within 24 - hours and deployed quickly as a line of credit to provide business capital when time is of the essence. 


Another advantageous benefit of a 2nd R.M. caveat loan is that it does not even require the borrower to pay out or discharge their existing 1st mortgage or home loan. 


Private caveat loans sit comfortably behind a borrower's current bank as 2nd priority, meaning they can be settled fast.

Why Are Private Caveat Loans So Popular?

In recent times, private caveat loans or specialist private mortgages have helped many Australian borrowers to get themselves out of a pickle in meeting their financial deadlines.

It is no secret that private caveat mortgage loans offer far greater flexibility with the approval process of private caveat loans in comparison to bank loans.

Instead of several people within a bank needing to sign off on an approval, private lending only needs to be signed off by 1 person in most instances.

Private caveat lending simply means that instead of the funding coming from a bank, it comes from a private non-bank. What difference does this make for a borrower? Not much at all.

Caveat finance isn’t just easy to get approved, but the entire approval & settlement process is unmatched in terms of those that may find themselves in time-sensitive predicaments.

The major point all borrowers must consider is their intended exit strategy. So long as they have obtained financial & legal advice and collectively decided on a responsible exit strategy, private lending can prove to be a sensible & viable alternative for those with limited options.

Private caveat loans are secured quickly fast via (PEXA Online) by the private lender's solicitors either via a caveat or a registered mortgage over the property title.

A caveat is a legal instrument that sits behind an existing first mortgage (if applicable) and doesn’t require permission from the institution that holds a mortgage over the property.


Where a first or second-ranking mortgage may be registered over the property title subject to the acceptance of the credit provider.

However, the type of legal instrument used will vary and is subject to the borrower's lender's acceptance. 

Private caveat finance allows all real estate property owners to convert their tangible equity to be used for numerous instant purposes without the stressful prerequisites often insisted by a bank.

A great advantage with private 2nd mortgages is the borrower isn’t even required to refinance or pay out their existing home loan or mortgage facility if they choose, so the process is very borrower friendly.


What Are Private Mortgages?

Specialist Private Lending is specifically designed to offer greater flexibility around approval compared to the banks, and a faster turnaround time in instances where a borrower is time-poor. 


Private Lending simply refers to where the source of funding comes from. With conventional mortgage lending, funds often come from a major bank, whereas non-bank lending comes from sophisticated private investors or an investment firm such as a superannuation fund.


A Private Loan is secured quickly and simply by the private lender registering a caveat on the property owner’s title. The caveat is a legal instrument that sits behind an existing first mortgage (if applicable) and doesn’t require permission from the institution that holds a mortgage over the property. An alternate legal instrument can be used, such as a first or second-ranking mortgage. The legal instrument depends on the borrower's scenario and purpose. 

Private Finance allows real estate property owners the ability to convert their equity for immediate use without any stressful questions or prerequisites from a bank. The borrower is not required to refinance or pay out their existing home loan or mortgage facility so the process is very efficient.

​As a duty of care, we remind anyone considering lodging an application for a private business loan to seek independent financial & legal advice before considering what's right for you. Our consultants are happy to go through a series of basic questions and answers that may offer you some general information that can be taken back to your legal advisor for consideration.
