*Every failed application will cut your chances for finance

In most cases multiple credit enquiries of any kind let alone declines can have a major impact when applying for credit, generally with the majority of lenders more than 6 enquiries in the last 6 to 12 months could have an impact on their decision when assessing an application for credit, each lender has their own guidelines and is in most cases depended on the individual lender as well as the strength of your application at the time of applying, such things are taken into consideration is any large deposits towards the purchase of the goods, which creates equity and reduces the risk of lending you credit at the time, however other things that are also considered is income, residential, employment stability and financial position at the time you re-apply and subject to the lenders approval and may change at the lenders discretion.

A pre-approval means that your request for a loan has been fully assessed by a finance consultant, and you meet all the requirements of one of our lenders based on your loan request, and you qualify for credit based on the information you provide us.
This generally takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to conduct a proper assessment, which also includes a credit check, income & liability check as well as several other questions we will ask to ensure that entering into credit contract is suitable to you, and obtaining credit is not going to place you in financial hardship or a major strain on you current financial position, once this is done a pre-approval is issued and is always conditioned upon evidence of documents that may be required from you, example of some documents that would be required are listed below.

  • 2 recent pay slips, no more than 30 days old as evidence of income
  • (if applicable) A transaction listing from all bank accounts listed in your name for the last 90 days if an employee, is self-employed we would need the last 180 days
  • (if applicable) proof of any payment arrangements you may have on any past defaults for the last 6 months
  • Our credit guide & credit quote singed and returned to us
  • Our privacy consent form signed and returned to us
  • (if applicable) a current Centrelink statement showing current and future entitlements no more than 30 days old, this may be required as proof of additional income
  • (if applicable) a loan statement for the last 6 months, this will be required to show some history on how you are repaying a current loan
  • (if applicable) a current credit card statement, this will be required show that your payment history is satisfactory.

Always be aware that a pre-approval does not mean that your loan has been approved or that the lender has accepted to provide you with credit, a pre-approval can be reversed at any time if we don’t receive your supporting documents within a timely manner, and when we do receive your supporting documents, if they do not meet the requirements or guidelines that are required to obtain credit. A pre-approval is at no time an offer to enter into a credit contract or agreement.

A formal approval means that once we have received all documents requested in your pre-approval, and they have been checked off, they meet all requirements by us and the allocated lender, your loan application has been completed in full, only at that time providing that we believe that your application has at least a 90% chance of a success with the lender, we will then release your application and all supporting documents to that lender,
once the lender receives all relevant documents including your application, they will conduct their checks which should match with ours, and if all checks are done and acceptable based on their lending criteria, they will issue a formal approval which means funds are allocated and you will be able to proceed with your purchase.
Sometimes lenders may issue a formal approval with further conditions, this may vary from lender to lender and will depend on the type of loan you are applying for, some examples are, if its car loan, there may be a age restriction, there may also be a loan term restriction as well, in almost all cases the conditions that maybe imposed by the lender are standard and easy to comply with.

A formal approval can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days, there are many variables here that make a difference to the time frame, some obvious variables are:

  • Employment checks, this can at times take a while as it is depending on your employments payroll system and how quick they respond to our call, in all cases if there is a hold up in this area, we will contact you so that you may help speed up the process by speaking to your payroll officer or employer.
  • Rental and boarding checks can also hold up the procedure much the same as above
  • Other lender reference checks can also hold things up, if the other lender doesn’t respond straight away, sometimes to speed this process up, it is best to provide a loan statement.
  • Lenders being under staffed, this is sometimes a problem as lenders are no different to other business in the work place, once you have some staff off work due to illness or other reasons, this can also slow the process down.
  • If a lender has asked for further supporting documents for some particular reason to help make their decision, and we either can’t get hold of you to obtain it or you are slow in getting what they have requested back to us, this can also hold up the process however it is rare but can happen.
  • There are a few other reasons which are extremely rare like computer system failure, internet down time, a system crash.

Other than that generally formal approvals are quite quick when everything goes according to plan, which believe or not happens quite often.
