It is important that you arrange finance well in advance of your settlement date, meaningĀ it is imperative that you understand your funding options early on. By assessing your individual needs and the finance options available to you, prior to seeking formal approval from a financier, this will safeguard you for a successful settlement outcome further down the track.

Employing and actioning a funding strategy early in your settlement process will allow you to not only eliminate options no longer available to you but streamline the finance approval process, ensuring that you are able to settle on time.

If you are an overseas purchaser, the pre-approval process will likely take longer, so it is important that you start preparing between 9-6 months prior to settlement.

If you are an Australian resident we suggest investigating all finance options available to you, to ensure you are well prepared we recommend contacting a finance broker or institution between 6-3 months prior to settlement.

In preparation of your loan application, you will be required to have various supporting documents, such as personal identification, proof of income, copy of your purchase contract, evidence of savings, and details of any other debts/liabilities, as on application your lender will provide a detailed list of requirements. With a pre-approved loan there are fewer chances of delays with the settlement process.
