When it comes to short term business finance, one of the most difficult tasks faced by business owners is finding the product that will best suit their needs. A basic lack of understanding is a common issue, and we are here to solve it. An injection of cash flow can help you capitalise on business opportunities or deal with any unexpected hurdles.
If you have equity in your property, a caveat loan is one financing option that may be available to you. A caveat loan is a secured loan in which finance is obtained by using a piece of real estate as collateral. For a loan to be approved, a caveat is lodged on the title of ownership of the property. The caveat acts as a warning to inform other parties that someone has an interest in the nominated real estate.
Knowledge of the features, application process, and impact of having a caveat will allow you to determine if it is an appropriate financing alternative.
A caveat is a notice that informs the wider public that there is an interest in the nominated land or property. With respect to caveat loans, a caveat is placed on the real estate being used to obtain finance to prevent the owner from selling, transferring, or dealing with the property without the consent of the caveator. When a loan is secured and a caveat is active, the real estate in question cannot be used as collateral for any additional loans.
A caveat is not a mortgage or second mortgage. The main difference lies in the rights of the party who is taking an interest in real estate. A caveat prevents the owner of the property from undertaking certain actions with respect to the property including selling or transferring ownership. In contrast, a mortgage gives the lender the right to sell the property if the borrower fails to make repayments on time and subsequently defaults.
The loan terms, in particular the loan amount and time, are also noticeably different. With short terms caveat loans, you are generally required to repay the loan in 6 to 12 months. Unlike mortgages which required a minimum repayment on a fortnightly or monthly basis, caveat loans are more flexible. At Simply Funds we can tailor your repayments so that they are aligned with the cash flow of your business.
Prior to applying for a caveat loan, it is essential to be aware of the types of real estate that can be used. At Simply Funds, we accept residential and commercial property, along with vacant land. This includes real estate located in metropolitan, regional, and rural areas. Applicants should be aware that the location of the real estate has an impact on the access to funding and the amount that can be borrowed.
The amount that you can borrow with a caveat loan will depend on a variety of factors including the value of the real estate, the type of property, its location, and the equity currently available. Those with equity in a residential or commercial property in a metropolitan area can get up to 75% LVR (loan to value ratio). As mentioned above, rural property and vacant land can be used but with a decreased LVR. The loan to value ratiois used to express the ratio of the loan to the asset being used as collateral.
As caveat loans are secured, the entire process including funding can be complete in a matter of days. We conduct desktop property valuations which helps speed up the process. Our streamlined application process takes minutes to complete with no credit checks required for pre-approval. Once your caveat loan application is approved, we will apply for a caveat on the property being used. The process of lodging a caveat may take 2-3 business days. If you require funds within a 24 hour period, Simply Funds offer a number of fast business loan options.
At Simply Funds we understand the value of time. Thanks to our flexible lending criteria we can provide business finance with minimal documentation. Many financial institutions require proof of income and expenses along with multiple tax returns to gain a loan approval. This is not the case at Simply Funds. As they involve the use of real estate to secure the loan, we can provide business finance with basic personal and business details.
One of the major benefits of caveat loans is that they have significantly lower interest rates attached to them. Other business loan types, personal loans, unsecured loans, and the use of credit cards can place unnecessary financial stress on business owners. Caveat loan interest rates offer a more affordable option because of the added security that is provided by using your property as collateral.
If there is a caveat on a property, the owner cannot sell or use it to obtain another loan. The same applies to the caveator (lender) who does not have the right to take possession of or sell the property in the event of a default. If you have multiple properties with caveats on them, you should look to free one of them up if there is enough equity available. This would allow you to explore other business loan options.
There are situations where a caveat can be challenged or removed. The first is by requesting the caveator to do so by lodging a form to the relevant registry. Other methods include the use of a lapsing notice or applying to the supreme court. Only parties with a valid interest described as a ‘caveatable interest’ can lodge a caveat.
In relation to short term caveat loans, the caveat attached to the real estate is released one the loan has been fully repaid.

A Bizcap provides both Unsecured and Secured loans to Small Business Owners. When assessing a loan application Bizcap generally doesn't take into consideration if a prospective customer has specific assets to provide as security. However:
(a) if the loan amount is above $30,000 (or any other figure which Bizcap determines from time to time), Bizcap will, under the loan agreement take a charge. For a corporate borrower and any corporate guarantor, the charge is over all of that entity's present and after-acquired property (that is. the security is not over specific assets but any and all assets which the entity may have). For a sole trader borrower and any individual guarantor, the charge is over its current and future real property; and
(b) in certain instances, for example, where the loan relative to the cash flow of the borrower is of a size that warrants the provision of security over specific assets. Bizcap may require specific security to be granted over those assets. Bizcop may register its security interest(s) under relevant legislation, including the Personal Properties Securities Register and the register held under the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW) or Its equivalent.
I n addition. Bizcap may take personal guarantees from directors of corporate borrowers, directors of corporate guarantors and certain individuals. No registrations are made in respect of guarantees.
