What we do next

Follow up

Once we’ve reviewed your application, one of our Home Loan Specialists will be in touch within 24-48 hours to confirm your details and discuss your overall home loan needs and objectives.

Verifications

If your application progresses, we’ll ask you to provide some documents so we can check the details you included in your application form. Don’t worry, it’s quick and easy – we’ve partnered with Illion to let you upload your documents securely. We’ll also need to verify your employment details with your employer. 

Before we review your documents, and carry out your employment check, we should be able to confirm if you’ve been conditionally approved.

*Conditional approval is valid for 90 days and will not progress to unconditional approval until we have completed all the checks.

Valuation and assessment

Once we’ve checked your documents, we’ll then carry out a valuation on your property if we need too.

Approval

It’s official! Once everything is all good from our end, we’ll confirm your loan is approved and send your home loan contract to you.

Settlement

Once your contract is signed, we will work out a time with you to settle your loan. 

Then – guess what? Your new Credit Union SA Home Loan will be up and running and it’s time to enjoy all the benefits (and savings) of having a home loan with us. Whoop whoop!
