What Are Private Caveat Loans?

Caveat loans are a type of private finance or mortgage lending product that is a non-bank type of loan.


Depending on whom you speak with, caveat loans can occasionally be referred to by different terminologies such as solicitor loans, private 2nd mortgages, mezzanine finance, hard private loans just to name a few.

But regardless of what jargon is used to describe the term "caveat loans"... will in some way still be related to non-bank private finance that falls outside the mainstream banks.

Many Australians may find private caveat loans helpful in certain scenarios because they do not require proof of income, and tax returns and financial records are not needed to qualify. Best of all, even a borrower's credit rating is irrelevant. 


Caveat loans may also offer a short-term 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 for both personal and 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 in conjunction with a sensible exit strategy, in the interim of the borrower's circumstances coming back into shape.

Private Caveat Lending provides borrowers with fast legitimate access to capital by leveraging the equity within an existing property for a variety of alternatives including that may be used as a line of credit, bridging loan, home loan, or private residential or commercial mortgage refinance. 

Caveat loans may even allow cash flow to fund property developments, construction loans, even as a business overdraft that can consolidate business creditors, tax debts, and a variety of other commercial needs such as the purchase of stock.

With the use of our 2nd registered mortgages and caveat loans, funding possibilities are endless. One of the more important factors is that caveat loans can be approved within 24 - hours to provide access to instant business capital when time is of the essence. 


The advantage of a caveat loan is that it does not require you as a borrower to pay out or discharge an existing mortgage or home loan.


Longer-term funding can be secured through a registered 2nd mortgage which does not interfere with any of your existing loans, so you can rest assured that these loans can settle fast and fuss-free. 

Are Private Caveat Loans Popular?

Yes, It is no secret that caveat loans and private mortgages have become extremely popular in recent times as a result of major banks tightening their credit lending rules.


Caveat Loans Australia is a leader in non-bank lending alternatives with a range of lending options that may offer borrowers practical finance options when compared to bank loans.

When dealing with banks, not only is the borrower being initially assessed by artificial intelligence computer systems before reaching a human, but when the client's file gets to a real person, it has passed through that many hands that the important personalised requirements of the applicant are all but diluted.

When dealing with Caveat Loans Australia you will be provided with local human interaction in Australia. Everything is processed down under and not outsourced overseas.


In layman's terms, what does this mean for you the borrower? You can be assured that your approval will be attended to with priority from start to finish. Instead of dealing with multiple people within a bank, private caveat loans provide more convenience because your approval is processed within a single Australian team. 

Caveat finance isn’t just easy to get approved, but the entire approval & and settlement process is unmatched in terms of speed and how easy the approval process is. 

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.

However, the type of legal instrument used for you will vary depending on your circumstances. 


What Are Private Mortgages?

Specialist Caveat Loans provide alternative lending solutions that are specifically tailored to meet the borrower's financial needs.  Private lending is designed to offer fast flexible stress-free funding that is far easier to be approved in comparison to major banks. 


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

A Private Loan can be secured quickly by the private lender registering a caveat or mortgage on the property title, much faster than a bank, allowing the borrower to access the funds within a matter of a couple of days.


A caveat is a legal instrument that sits behind an existing first mortgage 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 decision of which legal instrument is used will depend on the borrower's set of circumstances. 

Private Finance allows real estate and property owners in Australia the ability to leverage their equity for immediate use without any stressful prerequisites that one would expect from a bank.


Further, the borrower is not required to refinance or pay out their existing home loan or mortgage facility, making the process very efficient.

Are Private Caveat Loans Beneficial?

There are many reasons why borrowers turn to non-bank private finance as a source of funds. One of the standout reasons is the ever-changing lending guidelines within the banking and finance industry — which can impact borrowers such as the self-employed.

Can Private Caveat Loans Help Me?

Every individual’s reason for seeking a caveat loan or private mortgage is different.

We have successfully funded many clients who required no-nonsense finance.

Here are some instances where private lending may offer financial relief:

  • Purchase a house.

  • Construction finance.

  • Property development.

  • Refinance existing mortgage.

  • Payout overdue ATO tax debts.

  • Business overdraft line of credit.

With the bank's recent tightening of their credit lending policies, so many restrictions have been placed on all forms of consumer & business financial services, making it virtually impossible for a genuine borrower to obtain any type of funding or loans.

However, as part of a sensible financial plan, along with a realistic exit strategy, private business loans, private residential mortgages, private commercial finance, or the use of a short-term caveat loan, may provide a viable alternative when you're up against the clock. 

​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.

What is a Caveat Loan?
