Reduce Loans strives to remain as transparent and helpful throughout the entire process of applying for a loan as possible. We provide a digital platform that is easy to navigate and use, plus our support and advice services are available at all times.
Once you submit your application form, our Personal Finance Manager will review that paperwork with Credit Approval Officers to get you Conditionally Approved. If any additional details are required, your Personal Finance Manager will contact you straight away.
This level of customer service makes Reduce Loans stand out from the average loan providers. We put in the extra effort to ensure our customers are in the know about the current status of their loan applications.
What documents will I need for my home loan application?
Typically, documents required to secure a home loan include:
- Payslips and proof of sustainable income
- A list of assets and liabilities
- Other documentation may be needed, depending on your personal circumstances. Your Personal Finance Manager will confirm all documentation needed for your application.
5. Conditional Approval – You’re almost there!
Congratulations on taking the first step towards achieving home loan approval!
With your Conditional Approval, Reduce Loans has given you an insight into how much they’re willing to lend. From the documentation submitted, they’ve established that you’re capable of servicing the loan amount once it settles.
To achieve Formal Approval, there may be further information that Reduce Loans needs to receive from you. Your friendly Personal Finance Manager will be in contact with any required documents and is always available for any questions you may have, as well as organising a valuation for your new home.
Reduce Loan’s efficient process can give you peace of mind knowing your application is in safe hands!
6. We’ll arrange the valuation of your home
After you have received your Conditional Approval, a valuation company representative will get in touch with you to accurately price your home.
Rather than settling for data from real estate websites, the valuation representative from our team will inspect the property and provide the lender, your Personal Finance Manager and yourself with a clearer and more accurate picture of its true worth.
7. Congratulations! Your loan has been Formally Approved
Receiving Formal Approval for your loan application is a huge accomplishment and something to be celebrated!
This seal of approval from the funder means that your property purchase has been accepted as an acceptable security for the amount and terms you requested.
Now, all that remains is to provide your Personal Finance Manager with purchase documents from the Real Estate and agree on a settlement date.
Different lenders have varying waiting periods between Formal Approval and Settlement; however, generally loans settle within 6-12 weeks so you’ll soon have access to your funds. Congratulations on this momentous occasion!
8. Settlement date – Get the keys to your new home today!
Your Settlement date marks the end of Reduce Loans’ process and the start of an exciting new chapter for you.
All involved parties sign off on the purchase or property transfer documents, allowing you to receive your loan funds and finally get the keys to your new home.
If this settlement represents a refinancing, be prepared to enjoy all of the benefits of a reduced rate, like increased savings and added financial freedom.
We are happy you chose Reduce Loans to make this transition easy and stress-free for you.
Enjoy your new home!
