Frequently Asked Questions
What is a second home mortgage loan?
Put simply, a second home mortgage loan is a loan that is used to purchase your next home, or a supplementary home. This could be a move to a new house, a vacation home to spend the summer, or an investment property. Regardless, it has a different set of requirements, new challenges, and a different process compared to purchasing your first home.

Do I qualify for a second home mortgage loan?
There is a variety of elements to consider when determining if you qualify for a second home mortgage or not. Here are some of the most important considerations:
- Your credit score
- Your household income and debt-to-income ratio
- Ability to make a substantial down payment
- Payment history on your first mortgage
Of course, there is a variety of other factors to consider, and every individual situation is different. Therefore, we suggest speaking to an expert to help fully understand your circumstances and what your options are. Our expert team of mortgage brokers in Sydney are here to help in this process, as well as finding, qualifying, and negotiating your mortgage.
Why would someone want a second home mortgage?
One of the main reasons that people will take out a second mortgage loan is when they are moving house. Once a family (or an individual) is looking to move from a home that they currently own to a new one, they are now applying for a second home mortgage loan or a next home mortgage loan. They are no longer a first-time buyer, and therefore they are not eligible for the benefits that come with that.
Another common reason to take out a second home mortgage is to purchase a vacation home or investment property. Taking out a second mortgage has a lot of benefits for homeowners who can afford to do it. A second mortgage allows the homeowner to tap into the equity they have already built up and to provide a source of income in multiple ways. For example, if you are looking to invest in a new property, pay off high-interest debt, or invest in a new venture, a second mortgage can provide the financing you need.
Where can I get a second mortgage loan in Australia?
Second mortgage loans are available through a variety of lending institutions, including banks, credit unions, and mortgage brokers. At Lendstreet Mortgage Brokers, we work with the best institutions in Australia to find the perfect mortgage solution for you.
Our team of experts will work with you to determine your capabilities in terms of income, equity, and credit score. Along with your goals, we will consider all of this to find, qualify, and negotiate your mortgage, meaning less stress for you. With a true understanding of the property market and lending process, we can help you to land your dream home.
Do I need to pay stamp duty again?
Yes – stamp duty is a mandatory tax component that you’ll need to pay on all property title transactions and transfers. So, with every home that you purchase, you will need to pay stamp duty again. There may be exemptions for groups with specific circumstances and those eligible for exemptions – but generally, as you will not be classified as a first home buyer when you’re purchasing your second home, stamp duty will be payable.
In NSW, you must pay stamp duty within three months of signing the contract of sale or transfer. For residential units off the plan, this is extended to 12 months following signing the contract.
What is a bridging loan?
A bridging loan refers to a short-term loan that can help you to bridge the gap between the purchase of a new home and selling your existing property. Generally, a bridging loan will cover the time between purchasing the new property and settling the sale of your current home (usually up to 12 months). A bridging loan is a great way to get your circumstances in order for your new home when you have not yet found the right buyer for your current property – if you’d like to learn more about getting a bridge loan to support the purchase of your second home, get in touch with the experts at Lendstreet today.
What is a deposit guarantee?
A deposit guarantee, also known as a deposit bond, is an insurance policy to guarantee that you will pay the deposit at the settlement of sale. A deposit guarantee can be used instead of a cash deposit, to speed up the process, and delay the payment of cash deposit until settlement. It also provides the vendor with assurance and protection that the deposit will be paid at settlement.
