The loan approval process and the stages of a home loan application
The process of obtaining a mortgage involves a significant number of processes; however, our mortgage brokers who operate in and around the Unanderra local area will assist you through each and every one of these steps. The following is a list of some of the ways in which they will be assisting you:
Step one – Determine the correct lender for the home loan application that you are going to put forward,
Step two – Prepare an application and have it signed, along with gathering the required information for the lender’s checklist.
Step three – A property valuation would be ordered at this point – unless it is a pre-approval.
Step 4 – The loan is lodged with the relevant lender by your mortgage broker for their approval.
We monitor the progress of the loan and answer any questions that the lender may have to complete their assessment of your loan application.
Once the lender is satisfied and provides a formal approval, we will then move to the next step which is going over your loan contract for the home loan to ensure everything is correct. We then assist you in signing the home loan documents and advise if we need anything else such as a discharge form for a refinance or to complete any building insurance requirements etc.
Then it is just a matter of waiting for the settlement of the home loan to take place. At all times your mortgage broker will be able to tell you where the application is up to, during this process.
Determining your borrowing power
If you are interested in purchasing a property or refinancing your home loan, our mortgage brokers are here to assist you. We are able to assist you in determining how much money you are capable of borrowing from each of the different lenders on our panel. Every lender determines you borrowing power based on the same factors. These factors are:
- Your income and how long you have been with your employer. Is it full time, part time or are you self-employed etc as each of these will have a bearing with a lender when approving a home loan.
- Your current level of debt that is remaining once you have the home loan. So are we consolidating any loans to give you more borrowing power? Are credit card or personal loans impeding your ability to refinance or purchase a property?
- How many dependent children you have – Children are treated as a liability with every lender – the more you have, the bigger the effect on your borrowing capacity.
- Your living expenses – it is worth noting that the lenders have their own estimates that they use regarding the minimum expenses they will use. It is all built into their calculators.
