Who does AMP lend to?

AMP offers home loans for first home buyers, refinancers, those looking to construct a new home on land, those in need of bridging finance, property investors and more. You’ll generally want to consider your financial needs and priorities when deciding what type of home loan could be suitable for you.

Can I get an AMP home loan as a first home buyer?

Yes, AMP provides home loans to first home buyers. While they don’t have a home loan product tailored specifically for those buying their first home, they have resources available for first home buyers to help them navigate the process of buying a home for the first time.

Does AMP offer the Home Guarantee Scheme?

No, AMP is not one of the 33 participating lenders chosen by the Federal Government to offer the Home Guarantee Scheme. Subsequently, if you want to apply for the Home Guarantee Scheme, you may want to consider working with a different lender.

The Home Guarantee Scheme helps certain home buyers secure a home loan with a deposit smaller than 20%, without having to pay lenders mortgage insurance (LMI).

The Home Guarantee Scheme is made up of three separate initiatives:

  • The First Home Guarantee, which allows eligible first home buyers to purchase a home with a deposit of as little as 5%.
  • The Family Home Guarantee, which allows eligible single parents to purchase a home with a deposit of as little as 2%, regardless of whether they’re a first home buyer or not.
  • The Regional First Home Buyer Guarantee, which allows eligible first home buyers to purchase homes in regional areas with a deposit of as little as 5%.

Applications for one of these schemes can only be made through a participating lender or a mortgage broker acting as an authorised representative of a participating lender.

Can you refinance your home loan with AMP?

Yes, you can switch your home loan to AMP from another bank by refinancing. Borrowers refinancing their loan with AMP must be borrowing 80% or less of the property’s value and can choose either an Essential Home Loan or a Professional Package Home Loan to refinance to.

The latter option offers refinancers a choice of a fixed or variable rate, as well as flexible repayment options and the ability to add an offset account on variable rate loans.

Does AMP charge Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?

AMP advises that they require a borrower to take out lenders mortgage insurance (LMI) when there’s an increased risk associated with the loan in question. They’ll typically charge LMI if the borrower’s deposit represents less than 20% of the total loan value.

AMP notes you could potentially avoid paying LMI with the help of a home loan guarantor, but that the guarantor will typically need to be an immediate family member.
