The lending landscape is holding tight at the moment. APRA’s recommendation to reduce the amount of interest only loans to a maximum of 30% and reduce year-on- year growth of investment loans to 10% is having the desired effect of reducing debt, with multiple lenders achieving this threshold. The upside of this is that a robust environment around lending gives consumers confidence that rules are strong enough to mitigate risk in times of downturn or economic hardship. The downside, is that you may be having trouble accessing lending. But it won’t get tougher than it is now.
