  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Interest Only Loans in the forum Creative Investing 17 years, 10 months ago

    Hi,

    In regards to the IO loans you manage, what does your contract say in terms of how the following is determined;

    – interest is calculated
    – arrears are calculated
    – extra payments are calculated

    These questions also apply to the honeymoon rates.

    I would like to develop these features, however I first need to understand the user’s…[Read more]

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Interest Only Loans in the forum Creative Investing 17 years, 11 months ago

    Hi,

    Isnt the reason why the banks are restrictive with what they do becuase the buy money in a different way to lend to IO opposed to P+I?

    True, however this topic is to investigate how vendor financiers manage interest only loans. In nearly all cases their funds are either wrapped around an existing loan, or created as a second mortgage to sell…[Read more]

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Does anyone have a straight answer to this? in the forum Creative Investing 18 years, 2 months ago

    Hi,

    Section 26 of the Land Tax act for NSW is the part you need to read. It covers it all there.

    In essence, the wrappee;

    – must have possession of the property
    – have purchased with a valid contract
    – have the rights as if they were the owner (ie can rent property out etc)

    Hi,

    Check out section 13 of the FHOG act for qualifying and understand the meaning of “possession”; and

    Check out section 26 of the Sale of Land act for examption of the land tax and again understand “possession”

    You can find the acts at http://www.austlii.edu.au

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Anybody completing wraps in WA in the forum Creative Investing 18 years, 8 months ago

    Hi,

    To say wrapping is illegal in W.A. is to say that driving a car in W.A. is illegal – both are illegal when done unlicensed – this is the point of the Consumer Affairs article – their view is that wrapping is a legitimate form of credit providing and as such falls under the credit code – which in W.A. must be done with a credit providers…[Read more]

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Wrapper Jenman agent’s biggest client in the forum Heads Up! 18 years, 11 months ago

    Hi,

    I understand – actually never can happen in a flash – what most media don’t understand is that the credit code offers a lot of options to consumers along with protection.

    Which is why even default means the consumer has 30 days to recover it.

    Alternatively they can request hardship allowance if in serious trouble (in this case they were on…[Read more]

    Hi,

    What about telling people that people that someone sold a house who’s name is not even on the contract?

    http://www.jenman.com.au/NewsNews1.php?id=314

    The point is, didn’t buy it, didn’t sell it, didn’t advertise it. So if not defamation, what is it? And this is my real name :)

    Or forget to mention a stack of other relevant details.

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic LEGALITIES OF A WRAP in the forum No Subject 19 years, 1 month ago

    Hi,

    Just a thought, why not speak with bank you have your accounts with. See if there is a way where you can set up a joint signatory account where the wrapper and wrappee jointly sign. Then arrange two direct debit facilities (which are also jointly signed);

    #1 to pay for 1st mortgage
    #2 to pay for wrapper’s margin

    This way money cannot be…[Read more]

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic New to wrapping. in the forum Creative Investing 19 years, 2 months ago

    Hi,

    If you do need to sell, another alternative – rather that wrap the whole lot – maybe offer to vendor finance just the deposit to a FHOG qualied borrower. This would mean your mortgage would be paid out on settlement.

    and the deposit could have a monthly payment with a payout in 1-5years

    Just a thought

    Robert,

    Now you will need to list the criteria of what defines an “average everyday mum and dad investor”.

    Robert,

    Could you please give us your definition of “spruiker”?

    Having only recently completed my term as President of the VFA, I would like to know what you are implying about the time I have spent in charge of the VFA?

    Hi Terry,

    Actually I’ve read that this threshold has been raised – I can’t remember the exact figure at the moment, but I think is has been approximately doubled.

    Hi Terry,

    You are referring to Section 66 – Changes on grounds of hardship http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/qld/consol_act/ccc176/s66.html

    Hi,

    In Rick’s case you are correct, in my case is was – and yet a story was still published with facts incorrect. The point was that in both cases the media was looking for a specific angle – as you read from the transcripts the interviewer was fishing for particular sound bites to edited into their story.

    Would you agree that the media wanted…[Read more]

  • MichaelGruber replied to the topic Vendor Finance Association Kaput? in the forum Creative Investing 19 years, 2 months ago

    Hi,

    From personal experience, it might be because even when you cannot comment due to the Privacy Act, they will just write a story anyway – regardless of facts.

    But that is just my personal opinion :)

    Hi,

    Unless the unit is the person’s principal place of resident then they can provide vendor finance without a license.

    However if they are in the business of vendor financing and selling places in a business like manner then contact the Department of Consumer and Employee protection to verify it would be ok to sell the PPOR.

    Do some research -…[Read more]
