AB Social: The side effects of APRA's moves

by AB17 Oct 2015
Since APRA’s crackdown on investment lending begins to filter through into the market, the unintended side effects are also rearing their head.

This week on Australian Broker’s exclusive LinkedIn group, we posed the question: should non-property investments be excluded from APRA’s crackdown in investment lending?

According to reports from brokers, some lenders are including loans for non-property investment within the 10% limit set by APRA, thus they are also subject to the higher rates. But if APRA’s crackdown was to curb investment in the heated residential housing market, should non-property investments be excluded?

We want to know your experiences with lenders and what you think about non-property investment being included in APRA's crackdown?
