  • Knowing your entitlements

Pre Approval

It’s time to get financial peace of mind. We’ll work with your chosen lender to conditionally approve your home loan application, so you can go house hunting with confidence.

Home loan pre-approval allows you to confirm that it will be possible to get a home loan and determine how much you can borrow. In this step, there are also documents you need for pre-approval.

Home loan pre-approval is usually subject to you meeting the required terms and conditions of the lender—for example, being able to provide the loan documentation required and proving you have a deposit.

Pre-approval looks at your personal circumstances in order to determine your borrowing power. With a few simple questions and documents provided by you we can work with the lenders on your behalf to get you the go ahead to start seriously looking!

You may check the documents you need for pre-approval on Page 16 of the “Home Buyer Essentials PDF Guide”


Once you have your deposit and know how much you can afford to spend, you can begin house hunting. We’ll work with you every step of the way to find and secure your dream home.
