Caveat Loans

Secured and Quick Caveat Loans from Instant Business Finance

If you are a small business owner or a director of a company, it sometimes becomes quite tough to get access to business capital. When time is an essential factor, a business cannot go through the lengthy bank loan approval process. Sometimes the traditional banks also deny the applications due to trivial and irrational reasons.

But at Instant Business Finance, we understand the various difficulties business owners can encounter. That’s where our Caveat Loans become the perfect solution. Our relaxed lending criteria make getting urgent business funding as simple as ordering a pizza.  Caveat Loans are secured against real estate, and are therefore less reliant on other factors such as credit scores and financials.  We can also prepay the interest, which means you don’t have to pay any payments during the first 6 months of the loan term.

What exactly is a Caveat Loan?

A caveat loan is a short-term business loan which is secured against real estate by way of a caveat.  A caveat is a legal instrument that is like a mortgage, and it gets placed on the property title to register the debt on that title.  In many states of Australia, we have to secure our loan against real estate using a caveat, as it is substantially faster to do it that way than to try and register a mortgage.  Registering a mortgage in states such as Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory, and the Northern Territory can take several weeks.

Caveat Loans have shorter loan terms and much faster turnaround times. You only have to provide minimal documentation to qualify, as the process is supported by security over your property. Caveat loans are perfect for almost any business type, with funds used for different reasons, including:

  • Expanding your current business
  • Renovating or rebranding the business
  • Immediate cash flow for equipment or inventory purchase
  • Particularly helpful for companies in need of capital
  • Perfect for a seasonal established business requiring cash flow for non-peak times

How do fast caveat loans work?

A short-term caveat loan is secured business finance that uses your land or property as security for the funding. You can borrow from $20,000 to One million dollars, depending on the property value you offer as collateral. Instant Business Finance offers loan amounts up to 75% of your property value.

Caveat loans are similar to a second mortgage, as the lender will take a charge over the property to secure the loan. If a property is sold then the caveat finance is repaid when the property settles, and its the same of a property is refinanced.

We approve caveat loans in Australia within a few hours with funding in as little as 24 hours.  Our caveat loan terms are between 1 to 12 months. You can capitalise all costs of the caveat loan and repay when the loan expires. The caveat loan cost is primarily determined by the interest rate, loan amount and loan term. The borrower has to pay some additional fees for fast caveat loans in Australia, including application and legal charges, all of which can be added to the loan.  (not physically paid up front)
