How can I get approved faster?

We’re committed to turning around your application in as little time as possible, but the time it takes us to get to your application can change depending on the complexity of your application, and how many applications we’re currently receiving.

After you apply, we’ll let you know if we’re experiencing any delays. Once we pick up your application for assessment, we start working towards approval. Things will move really fast here. It’s important that you check your eligibility and make sure you have the correct identification and documentation ready to apply, to help our Credit Assessors get your application fully assessed in no time.

Opting for manual financial validation instead of securely linking your accounts, submitting an incomplete application, or providing inaccurate estimates of your expenses (or any information regarding your income, expenses and debts which doesn't match your actual situation) may require manual work for you and our credit assessors. These things all slow us down significantly. So make sure you’re really ready before you apply and respond quickly to requests from our Credit Assessors to help get your approved faster.

If we need a little more information, we’ll refer your application to one of our Credit Assessors. This is where a member of our team will jump in to help bring your application up to scratch and over the line. Our Credit Assessors can usually move fast, and your application can sometimes be completed quite quickly, especially if you’re proactive in responding to their requests for more information.

Sometimes they’ll only need one or two things — some updated payslips or a bank account statement. Everyone’s unique, so if your specific situation is more complex than most, they might ask you to provide more detail. If you’ve chosen to validate your financials manually, they’ll typically need to request more information from you and it will take longer to assess your application. When you choose digital validation, they receive the exact same information, just much faster.

If your application is time-sensitive or if there is a deadline you’re trying to meet, please speak with our team to get an understanding of our current turnaround times. You can chat with us over LiveChat or on 1300 842 405.

Legal things about our rates
Our home loans are subject to credit criteria and eligibility requirements. Home loan interest rates are for new customers only and can change. Our comparison rates are based on a $150,000 loan amount over a 25 year term. They factor in fees associated with applying for the loan; ongoing fees and fees associated with leaving the loan. Our fixed loans roll to a variable principal and interest rate at the end of the fixed term. If the interest only period is not specified, the comparison rate is calculated on a one year period.

WARNING: The comparison rates are true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
