New homes are not subject to the same Reserve Bank lending restrictions as existing homes.

Our advice is to ask your mortgage provider or a company like NewBuild, who are specialists in financing new home building. If you want to know more, your Platinum Homes New Home Consultant can arrange an appointment for you with a NewBuild representative, who will be able to answer your questions about deposits and repayment amounts.
