  • Minimum remaining lease term for the property is one year
  • The maximum loan term is five years and an interest only period of up to three years may be available (but Weighted Average Lease Term (WALT) criteria apply, where applicable)
  • The loan-to-value ratio is 70% or less (as determined by ANZ)

Some restrictions apply disclaimer

Your client can apply using ANZ’s rapid refinance process if:

  • Their total business borrowings with ANZ are less than $1 million including the funding under the refinance application
  • Their proposed repayments on the refinanced loan are equal to, or less than, their current repayments
  • They are refinancing their existing OFI (other financial institution) business lending facility only or existing ANZ business lending facility such as ANZ Business Loan, Asset Finance balloon or Asset Finance mid contract (As long as the remaining term and the age of the asset being refinanced meet ANZ's credit requirements)
  • Their existing business lending facility has been established for a minimum of 12 months
  • They can provide 12 months of statements which show current minimum repayment amount and no late repayments on their existing buinsess lending facility
  • They satisfy a credit check

For example, simplified lending criteria apply to investors acquiring property for leasing to unrelated third parties, minimum servicing test (interest cover ratio) applies and security property must be standard commercial property (some exceptions apply).
