Pre-approval is an important step for home buyers.
Here we explain the process for getting conditional approval for your mortgage.
Getting conditional approval for your home loan
allows you to look – and enquire – with confidence, and it helps
Here are eight commonly asked questions about conditional
approval, that important first step in the home buying journey.
1. Do I need conditional approval?
people at an open house aren’t looking to buy that particular house. They’re
doing their homework, getting a sense of the market. They’re dipping a toe in
(or just being nosey!). But with loan conditional approval, you’re in a
different camp. You’re the real deal. You’re showing real estate agents and
vendors you’re serious and someone to negotiate with.
approval also keeps your feet on the ground. You know exactly how much you can
afford—and don’t waste time drooling over houses outside your budget.
2. Pre-approval, conditional approval
lenders use different terms—pre-approval, approval-in-principle and conditional
approval—to describe much the same thing. It can be confusing. But think of it
- It’s an enquiry
to establish your financial position.
- It’s an
indication (not a guarantee) from the bank as to how much you can borrow.
3. When should you apply for
often apply for conditional approval once they’ve done some initial research:
- Worked out borrowing capacity using various financial
tools and calculators
- Worked out how
much you can afford to repay
- Studied different types of home loans, and you may
have looked at the local property market and suburb you’re interested in.

perform a credit check on you with an external credit bureau.
this stage, your lender will most likely want some information about the
property you are wishing to obtain a loan for ( postcode, type of dwelling
