This would put even more pressure on investors who have bought in suburbs blacklisted by the traditional banks and who are looking for alternative lenders.

The Treasurers budget speech suggested that new legislation could allow APRA to “differentiate the application of loan controls by location.”

“Non-ADI’s would also be disinterested in those suburbs, but they may be getting strong inquiries from borrowers who have fallen out of favour with banks,” private lender

Development Finance Partners’ Matthew Royal told the Australian Financial Review.

“Those postcodes would be those which could be overheated … had a lot of borrowing.”

In general these suburbs had similar characteristics – a large number of new high-density developments.

The Black List

Last year the AFR published NAB’s confidential blacklist of 120 suburbs which included Sydney areas like the CBD, Homebush and Parramatta, Melbourne CBD, Brisbane CBD and regional WA and Queensland.

All lenders have similar lists – suburbs where they are not keen on lending.
