Using the information contained in the Scenario below, please complete the following 6 tasks. You must complete each task in order for your submission to be assessed.

2. List the supporting documents that would be needed to support the loan
3. Complete a loan costing sheet *
4. Complete a loan servicing calculation (NSR) *
5. Download and complete the FHOG application form that is relevant to your state/territory, from the internet (or print from Appendix 15)
6. Complete a loan application form (a blank Westpac loan application form has been provided for you which you should use) and complete all of the accompanying documents as provided for you.
Your answer to this Task should be prepared as if you were submitting a real loan application to the lender.
Please note: If there is information required on the application that is not supplied please improvise. The application should be completed as neatly as possible to ensure ease of review. It is to be submitted to NFI as if NFI is the lender and you were an accredited broker. If you do not submit in a professional manner, your assessment will not be marked.
* Important: The fees and charges required in order to complete this assignment correctly (ie. Estimate of Costs worksheet) can be found in Unit 7 (use your own state-specific section at the back of Unit 7) and the instructions for how to complete the NSR form are in Unit 8. A Lenders Mortgage Insurance Chart table (for your LMI calculation if applicable) is found in Unit 7. Trainees should ensure Units 7 and 8 are used to source correct figures for this assignment.

ASSIGNMENT 2 Continued
The clients are looking to purchase their first home which is a small, newly built 2 bedroom unit at 2/12 Garden Grove Bankstown NSW 2200, for $485,000. The property has never been occupied before.
They have funds of $55,000 of which $35,000 were genuinely saved. The remaining $20,000 was a redundancy payment to Mr Grimms from his previous employer.
Mr and Mrs Grimms are eligible to apply for the FHOG. They are aware there will be a body corporate fee in the new unit complex which they have been told is $75 per week per unit.
Mr Grimms works as a carpenter with a major construction company in Bankstown and has been there for 32 months. His salary is $72,000 p.a. plus he has earned an average of $500 per week in regular overtime over the previous 18 months. He previously worked for a Tweed Heads Joinery company for 4 years before being made redundant when the business was bought out.
Mrs Grimms works as a receptionist/admin assistant with the BB Real Estate company and earns $47,000 p.a. She has been there for 30 months. She previously worked for another Real Estate company in Tweed Heads for 4 years.
The clients own 2 cars – a 2010 Holden Ute worth $12,000 and a 2011 Nissan Xtrail worth $20,000 with Nissan finance of $15,000 with repayments of $343 per month over 48 months.
Assumptions:
o Although addresses show NSW, for the purpose of duty/cost calculations, assume that the clients live in the same state as you (the broker).
o You can assume a Standard Variable Rate of 5% and a Qualifying rate of 2.5% above the Standard Variable Rate (for your NSR form).
o Assume the clients will be “full-doc”.
o Assume this lender would accept 50% of overtime income and assume
overtime forms part of the applicant’s total gross income
TIPS
LVR and LMI: To work out the LVR you first have to decide how much money your client can afford to borrow.
1. One method would be to determine if they could do a 95% loan so you would simply work out what95% of the purchase price would be. The purchase price is $485,000 x 95% = $460,750 (loan amount) LVR 95%. The LMI is worked out on $460,750 and the clients pay the fees from their own funds or some lenders will allow them to capitalise it into their loan.
2. Another method would be to work out the total funds available to the clients e.g. $55,000 savingsplus FHOG. After working out costs and taking these away from their available cash you would then know how much is left for a deposit. Once you know how much deposit they have you would then know the loan size and from there work out the LVR. The LMI is worked out on the loan amount that you end up with. Don’t forget to add the LMI stamp duty.
Keep in mind that first home buyers tend to want to do things with their first house, such as carpets, furniture, fittings, etc. and if they have some funds left over after settlement, they wouldn’t need to rely so heavily on credit cards, etc.
