About the Scheme.

Beyond Bank is proudly participating in the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme. The Australian Government has introduced the Scheme to support first home buyers buy their home sooner. The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) provides a guarantee that will allow eligible first home buyers to purchase a home with a deposit of as little as 5%, without the need to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI).

Customers must meet the Scheme’s eligibility criteria, but rest assured we’re here to support you, every step of the way.
