First-time buyers and experienced landlords alike start their applications in the same way. You will need to send an initial enquiry through. We can be reached over the phone, online, or via email and we respond to all enquiries within 4 hours. You can also reach us through an intermediary such as a mortgage broker. One of our underwriters will be in touch to gather initial details on your situation, provide an indicative tier, and go over your loan size.

Step 2: Underwrite & Issue DIP

As we move through the process, we will attain some key documentation from you as we finalise the underwrite. Then, we will issue a Decision in Principle (DIP) which will be the credit approved term. This will all be verified by our Credit Committee, and DIPs are usually issued within 24 hours.
