Private Caveat Loans Explained

A Caveat Loan is finance offered by a private organisation under the specialist non-bank finance lending industry. 


Private mortgage lenders offering Caveat Loans allow the self-employed Australian borrower to leverage their real estate equity in circumstances where conventional banks or mainstream finance lenders decline to provide finance and credit facilities.


We understand the restraints when dealing with general banks, and are passionate about helping the self-employed overcome the difficult process with mainstream lending institutions. Our specialist staff are experts in assisting with short to long-term private Caveat Loans. 


Often, we see the classic case where our clients are asset-rich in real estate property but cash poor. When cash flow is required, the good news is there are many viable finance alternatives and lending solutions that help you untie cash from your real estate assets.


We’re here to help you access your real estate equity simply, quickly and securely.

What Is A Caveat Loan Or Private Mortgage?

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.

How Can Private Caveat Finance Help Me?

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 landscape of the banking and finance industry — which subsequently impacts the self-employed in a big way.

How To Know If A Private Caveat Loan Can Help Me?

Every individual’s reason for seeking a Private Loan can be quite unique, so it is important to speak with one of our lending consultants, who will provide general advice by identifying potential opportunities for your consideration.

As a general consensus, identifying the most appropriate finance product will depend on many factors, such as the purpose of the loan, how much equity is built up in the security property value, as well as the council zoning of the security property being considered for purchase or refinancing.


We have successfully funded many clients that required simple, fast, and no-nonsense finance assistance in many instances where mainstream banks were unable to assist.

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

  • Purchase a house.

  • Construction finance.

  • Property development.

  • Refinance existing mortgage.

  • Release equity within property.

  • Payout overdue ATO tax debts.

  • Obtain revolving business overdraft line of credit.

  • Acquisition or purchase of real estate land or investment property .

  • Raise capital for the start up or expansion of new or existing business, rather than an IPO.

Other Advantages of Private Non-bank Loans

  • Low Doc finance where financials & tax records are not available.

  • Applicants with bad credit ratings are able to obtain finance without discrimination.

  • Private funding offers the fastest access to capital from $50k all the way to $10 million. 

  • Business and personal loans can be approved within 24-hours when using real estate security.

  • If you're able to provide us with a current letter of offer from a comparable finance lender, we will beat the interest rate & fees to prove that our rates are the cheapest on the market. That's our promise.

With banks in recent times taking such a tough stance with all forms of residential and commercial finance & mortgage lending, obtaining a private Caveat Loan as a financial service can be very beneficial if done so in a sensible manner.

​We remind anyone considering a private Business Loan to always seek independent financial or legal advice before considering what’s right for them. Our contact centre will go through a series of basic questions to understand your circumstances and help you make an informed decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are private loans structured?

Our firm offers many forms of specialist non-bank private financial services that can be either structured as lines of credit, bridging loans, home loans, private mortgages, equity access facilities, urgent cash-out or redraw facilities, overdrafts, commercial mortgages, development & construction finance, mezzanine finance, short term loans, mortgage refinancing, or debt consolidation. And best of all, there is no need for any tax returns, financials or credit checks.


Private finance, if structured correctly, can often be a lifesaving strategy for Australians who may require access to flexible business capital and cash flow finance. So long as you have real estate that can be used as security, there are a vast array of commercial lending options that can provide immediate financial relief.

What is a Caveat Loan?

Private Mortgages, Solicitor Loans, Short Term Caveat Loans or Solicitor Funds are all terms used interchangeably with Caveat Loans. Caveat Loans are provided by private lenders who aren’t bound by the harsh credit criteria that traditional lenders are subject to. 

What real estate can I use as security for a Caveat Loan?

Non-bank finance is far more flexible in terms of what can be used as real estate security in comparison to a bank. Security types such as residential houses, flats, units & apartments are acceptable, along with commercial dwellings such as shopfronts, industrial units, service stations, rural farms, vacant land, and income-producing properties.

Is it hard to get a short term Caveat Loan if I’m self-employed?

Caveat Loans are made for the self-employed! Our team understands the self-employed lending landscape more than the average bank manager, so you can be sure that if we cannot provide you with funding, then it’s most likely that no one else can. 


If you're in a critical situation, we urge you to contact our office to apply for a caveat loan as quickly as possible so we can work on organising your approval for the caveat loan application. The process is fast & hassle-free. Specialist lending has been at the core of who we are for the last 25 years. We understand that by keeping businesses commercially liquid during times of distress, we are able to provide the best possible platform for our clients to trade through these economic and turbulent times.

How soon can I get a fast caveat loan?

Approvals for fast caveat loans in Australia can be issued within four hours and can be applied for in the name of either a sole-trader, company, or family trust unit by providing a few basic details, with the subsequent settlement possible within 24-hours. Caveat Loans settle faster than traditional types of loans.​
