    Has anyone had any experience in getting 90% or 85% interest only investment loans with no LMI? I don’t qualify based on my profession. If so, which lenders offer this? I also want the ability to draw out any equity that may occur over time. This may be a hard ask in this climate but I would appreciate your thoughts

    Yes I have done these for clients who qualify by being in a relevant profession such as lawyers or accountants or doctors. In the past I have increased someone’s existing loan to 90% LVR with no LMI. Most major banks offer these waivers.

    But the new ‘rules’ may make this more difficult as you have to overcome the cash out restrictions.

    LMI exists for a reason – if there was a simple way of not having to pay it no one would!

    The only way you can is either via being in a relevent profession and meeting their criteria (doctors, lawyers, accountants and a few others), or the occassional 85% no LMI offer. The latter is generally at a higher interest rate and less desirable lender, and restricted to P&I owner occupied loans.
