What Are the LVR Restrictions? Property investors and homebuyers need to understand Loan to Value Ratio restrictions (LVRs). That’s because these rules dictate how much a bank can lend you for a property. They are set by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the government organisation that makes the rules for all commercial banks (like ASB, BNZ, ANZ and Westpac). Let’s go through an example to see what we mean. Say that a bank can only lend you up to 60% of a property's purchase price. That’s the LVR restriction. But the flip side of that is – if the bank will only lend you 60% of the money for a property – you'll need to come up with the other 40% as a deposit. Therefore LVRs set how much of a deposit that you need to purchase a property.
