How to Apply

Borrowers wanting to apply for Tic:Toc home loans should know that the process is 100 percent online, though if they need any assistance there is a customer service phone number available. Before applying for an Tic:Toc home loan, consider what you can afford to borrow and what other costs you need to factor in. To apply for an Tic:Toc home loan, you will need to supply the following information:

  • Proof of identity.
  • Australian citizenship or permanent residency. You must also live in Australia. 
  • Proof of income.
  • Internet banking logins or at least 3 months of transactional statements.
  • Have a 10 percent deposit.

About Tic:Toc home loans

Because it is a niche player within the market, Tic:Toc offers a thinner range of home loans than you might find with larger banks like Westpac or Commonwealth Bank. Unlike Australia’s big four banks, Tic:Toc considers itself a low-cost lender and doesn’t offer specialty loans. Tic:Toc home loans are suited to ‘vanilla’ borrowers, rather than those who require SMSF loans or reverse mortgages.

Tic:Toc requires that borrowers provide a 10 per cent deposit on home loans. Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. Tic:Toc home loans can be either variable or fixed, and offset accounts are available for both. Borrowers can also make unlimited additional repayments and free unlimited redraw on all loans.

Tic:Toc offers home loans for both investors and owner-occupiers. Borrowers can choose between principal-and-interest loans or interest-only home loans.

Tic:Toc home loan rates

Tic:Toc home loan rates tend to be very low or moderately low for both owner-occupiers and investors. Their rates tend to fall below those offered from Australia’s larger banks.

Because Tic:Toc is an online-only lender, it doesn’t have to maintain the expensive branch networks run by traditional banks, which means it can undercut them on interest rates. They also offer fewer frills than large banks, making it easier to charge their customers lower rates.

Tic:Toc home loan rates vary from product to product. While most of Tic:Toc’s home loan rates tend to fall between very low and moderately low, investors do pay higher rates than owner-occupiers. As a general rule, principal-and-interest borrowers are offered lower rates than interest-only borrowers, and variable home loans have lower rates than fixed home loans.

Tic:Toc home loans review

Tic:Toc home loans are perhaps better suited to tech-savvy borrowers who live in Australia’s capital cities or major regional centres. Home loans offered by Tic:Toc are ‘vanilla,’ with few frills; in return, they tend to have low interest rates and low fees.

Another way Tic:Toc keeps costs low is by limiting their home loan offering to ‘vanilla’ borrowers, who are easier to serve than specialist customers.

Tic:Toc does not operate any bank branches, so their mortgages are only suitable for those who are comfortable with their customer service living 100 per cent online and over the phone.

Tic:Toc does not charge an application fee or monthly administration fees. There is no charge for redraw, though customers do pay a monthly fee for offset accounts. Customers are permitted free unlimited additional repayments.

Does Australia have no-deposit home loans?

Australia no longer has no-deposit home loans – or 100 per cent home loans as they’re also known – because they’re regarded as too risky.

However, some lenders allow some borrowers to take out mortgages with a 5 per cent deposit.

Another option is to source a deposit from elsewhere – either by using a parental guarantee or by drawing out equity from another property.

How common are low-deposit home loans?

Low-deposit home loans aren’t as common as they once were, because they’re regarded as relatively risky and the banking regulator (APRA) is trying to reduce risk from the mortgage market.

However, if you do your research, you’ll find there is still a fairly wide selection of banks, credit unions and non-bank lenders that offers low-deposit home loans.

What is a bad credit home loan?

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.

What are the pros and cons of no-deposit home loans?

It’s no longer possible to get a no-deposit home loan in Australia. In some circumstances, you might be able to take out a mortgage with a 5 per cent deposit – but before you do so, it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons.

The big advantage of borrowing 95 per cent (also known as a 95 per cent home loan) is that you get to buy your property sooner. That may be particularly important if you plan to purchase in a rising market, where prices are increasing faster than you can accumulate savings.

But 95 per cent home loans also have disadvantages. First, the 95 per cent home loan market is relatively small, so you’ll have fewer options to choose from. Second, you’ll probably have to pay LMI (lender’s mortgage insurance). Third, you’ll probably be charged a higher interest rate. Fourth, the more you borrow, the more you’ll ultimately have to pay in interest. Fifth, if your property declines in value, your mortgage might end up being worth more than your home.

Do the big four banks have guarantor home loans?

Yes, ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac all offer guarantor home loans. These mortgages are also offered by many other banks, credit unions and building societies.

Are bad credit home loans dangerous?

Bad credit home loans can be dangerous if the borrower signs up for a loan they’ll struggle to repay. This might occur if the borrower takes out a mortgage at the limit of their financial capacity, especially if they have some combination of a low income, an insecure job and poor savings habits.

Bad credit home loans can also be dangerous if the borrower buys a home in a stagnant or falling market – because if the home has to be sold, they might be left with ‘negative equity’ (where the home is worth less than the mortgage).

That said, bad credit home loans can work out well if the borrower is able to repay the mortgage – for example, if they borrow conservatively, have a decent income, a secure job and good savings habits. Another good sign is if the borrower buys a property in a market that is likely to rise over the long term.

Who offers 40 year mortgages?

Home loans spanning 40 years are offered by select lenders, though the loan period is much longer than a standard 30-year home loan. You're more likely to find a maximum of 35 years, such as is the case with Teacher’s Mutual Bank

Currently, 40 year home loan lenders in Australia include AlphaBeta Money, BCU, G&C Mutual Bank, Pepper, and Sydney Mutual Bank.

Even though these lengthier loans 35 to 40 year loans do exist on the market, they are not overwhelmingly popular, as the extra interest you pay compared to a 30-year loan can be over $100,000 or more.

How can I get a home loan with bad credit?

If you want to get a home loan with bad credit, you need to convince a lender that your problems are behind you and that you will, indeed, be able to repay a mortgage.

One step you might want to take is to visit a mortgage broker who specialises in bad credit home loans (also known as ‘non-conforming home loans’ or ‘sub-prime home loans’). An experienced broker will know which lenders to approach, and how to plead your case with each of them.

Two points to bear in mind are:

  • Many home loan lenders don’t provide bad credit mortgages
  • Each lender has its own policies, and therefore favours different things

If you’d prefer to directly approach the lender yourself, you’re more likely to find success with smaller non-bank lenders that specialise in bad credit home loans (as opposed to bigger banks that prefer ‘vanilla’ mortgages). That’s because these smaller lenders are more likely to treat you as a unique individual rather than judge you according to a one-size-fits-all policy.

Lenders try to minimise their risk, so if you want to get a home loan with bad credit, you need to do everything you can to convince lenders that you’re safer than your credit history might suggest. If possible, provide paperwork that shows:

  • You have a secure job
  • You have a steady income
  • You’ve been reducing your debts
  • You’ve been increasing your savings

What happens to my home loan when interest rates rise?

If you are on a variable rate home loan, every so often your rate will be subject to increases and decreases. Rate changes are determined by your lender, not the Reserve Bank of Australia, however often when the RBA changes the cash rate, a number of banks will follow suit, at least to some extent. You can use RateCity cash rate to check how the latest interest rate change affected your mortgage interest rate.

When your rate rises, you will be required to pay your bank more each month in mortgage repayments. Similarly, if your interest rate is cut, then your monthly repayments will decrease. Your lender will notify you of what your new repayments will be, although you can do the calculations yourself, and compare other home loan rates using our mortgage calculator.

There is no way of conclusively predicting when interest rates will go up or down on home loans so if you prefer a more stable approach consider opting for a fixed rate loan.
