[MoreMore Insights] Mortgage Application Process And What To Expect

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Are you looking to take on your first mortgage? Here’s some common procedures and what to expect.

While inspecting open houses and looking to buy your property, you should also engage with a mortgage broker to check your financial status and borrowing capacity so that you will have the greatest confidence when the auction hammer falls.

So here’s the mortgage application process for new purchases:

1. Engage with your broker

Discuss your purchase intentions, formulate strategies, evaluate income and expenses, check borrowing capacity (apply for pre-approval from lenders if required)

2. Fill out some forms

Sign and return privacy consent form and fact-find documents (personal information) provided by your broker

3. Check and sign essential documents

Review and sign preliminary assessment document, credit guide and credit proposals provided by your broker.

- It will contain your personal information that you should ensure is accurate.

- It will contain loan products recommended by your broker that you should

understand and agree to.

Sign these relevant documents or check with your broker if you have any questions

4. Purchase your desired property

With your borrowing capacity in mind, purchase your property. inform your broker on the settlement period as indicated by the contract of sale.

5. Your broker will start the application process

Send relevant documents required by the mortgage lender. Your broker will provide a list of documents required, often including: payslips, tax returns, passport/driver's license, contract of sale, rental agreements, bank account saving/transaction history, etc.

6. Send any additional document required

There may be some additional documents required by the lender during the application process.

7. Application process success

The loan is settled, where both parties and solicitors will be informed.

8. Official ending of application process

You will receive emails and documents about the settled loan, it will often contain a new bank account for repayments (and/or credit cards & other accounts depending on the loan product).

In NSW, the settlement period of 42 days is fairly common, meaning that your broker should have the loan settled within this period. From discussing with your broker to loan settlement, the entire period should take 2-3 months.
