SLICE alternative finance

What we do

We work with a bunch of different providers (i.e. government) that contribute additional funds in order to increase the amount you have to spend.
In return our providers require repayments or an ownership share in your property which you can eventually buy from them.
Such schemes do not impact the way you use your property day to day.

Fixed fee of $200.

If we can't increase your lending you get your money back.

Can I apply direct with a scheme?

Yes, but it's super difficult and you can't complete the process without the support of your broker and lawyer. It's better to get your partners onboard from the beginning. Kainga Ora has extra requirements for the supporting broker and lawyer so you need partners that are familiar with the scheme and can guide you through the process. You can also end up wasting time and money considering schemes that don't suit your needs.

Can I learn about the scheme from the provider?

Yes, but unfortunately most scheme providers are not well equipped to educate or take you through all your options. They aren't able to educate you on the different criteria or impacts that come with the different schemes. We can help you compare all your options and consider how they might impact you.

Will additional lending make repayments harder?

Generally no. The majority of our schemes are co-ownership schemes where the provider takes an ownership share in your property and you repurchase this share within a period of time or when you sell the property. This doesn't affect the way you manage the property day to day and actually makes repayments easier to manage as you don't have to make repayments for their contribution.

I don't earn 150k can I apply?

Yes. There is no minimum amount you need to earn to apply for alternative finance. However, you will generally require a home loan as well and you are more likely to receive a home loan when you have over 60k in household income.
