In 1955 a group of staff from one of Australia’s largest banks had a vision of creating a co-operative Loans Society and so the Gateway Credit Union was formed. What started with a briefcase and a receipt book has grown to a membership in excess of 30,000. Gateway Bank now offers its members a broad range of award winning financial products and services all specially intended to help their members prosper. Gateway Bank’s mission is to provide its members with high value, low cost financial services and loans.
The bank has won a number of awards, including the Money magazine award in 2015 for the ‘Cheapest Home Loan Package – Non-Bank’.

A bad credit home loan is a mortgage for people with a low credit score. Lenders regard bad credit borrowers as riskier than ‘vanilla’ borrowers, so they tend to charge higher interest rates for bad credit home loans.
If you want a bad credit home loan, you’re more likely to get approved by a small non-bank lender than by a big four bank or another mainstream lender.
Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is an insurance policy, which protects your bank if you default on the loan (i.e. stop paying your loan). While the bank takes out the policy, you pay the premium. Generally you can ‘capitalise’ the premium – meaning that instead of paying it upfront in one hit, you roll it into the total amount you owe, and it becomes part of your regular mortgage repayments.
This additional cost is typically required when you have less than 20 per cent savings, or a loan with an LVR of 80 per cent or higher, and it can run into thousands of dollars. The policy is not transferrable, so if you sell and buy a new house with less than 20 per cent equity, then you’ll be required to foot the bill again, even if you borrow with the same lender.
Some lenders, such as the Commonwealth Bank, charge customers with a small deposit a Low Deposit Premium or LDP instead of LMI. The cost of the premium is included in your loan so you pay it off over time.
