Non-bank lender Resimac has responded to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority’s (APRA) changes to its home lending guidance, which allows lenders to self-assess their interest rate buffers. 

Resimac is not bound by these standards, but nonetheless, it has lowered its interest rate floor from 7.25 per cent to 5.75 per cent. The non-bank has noted that the changes will not apply to Resimac Specialist loans, which will continue to be assessed at current standards. 

The changes are effective for new applications submitted for Resimac Prime products from Thursday, 1 August.
