How to Apply

To begin the process of arranging a home loan, borrowers will need to apply online or in branch to arrange a face-to-face interview with a mortgage broker. Adelaide Bank has a network of over 5000 approved mortgage brokers across Australia who will facilitate the entire process for customers. Before meeting a broker it’s recommended that those seeking a mortgage look at the range of home loans available and consider how much they can afford to borrow, and over what time period. Even when applying for the paperwork-light SmartDoc and SmartDoc Plus loans it’s likely that some documents will be required upon application. These may include:

  • Personal identification.
  • Details of current assets, including estimated values.
  • Details of current debts, including credit limits.
  • Gross income.
  • Estimated value of any property offered as security.
  • Details of deposit and equity.
  • Previous mortgage statements (for refinancers).
