No-deposit home loans are ideal for purchasers that do not have sufficient funds for a deposit on a home loan, but are able to demonstrate the financial stability to make the monthly repayments.

These loans are also attractive for investors who want to maximise the gearing for taxation purposes or income return when purchasing investment property.

Lenders generally apply a higher debt-servicing ratio (the level of debt you're carrying compared to your income) to these types of home loans. They are ideal for people with a good income and credit history who, for different reasons have been unable to save a deposit or wish to invest without deposits. Having a guarantor of the loan helps.

No-deposit home loans are not as common and are far more difficult to obtain so it's important to discuss your needs with a Time Finance Mortgage Broker to see what type of loan can be attained for you.
