What are LEP or LEM fees?
LEP stands for low equity premium and LEM stands for low equity margin.
They are one of the restrictions given by the lender when you have a less than 20% deposit and a high LVR home loan.
An LEP is a one-time fee that is paid on settlement day.
Once this happens the LEM is removed.
Many of our clients get their LEM removed after the first year of home loan repayments using our structure advice and repayment strategy.
