  1. Find your home
  2. Make an offer
  3. Once the seller accepts, start your home loan application online with us
  4. If we approve your application, you may get your offer online or a consultant will contact you within 72 hours with the outcome of your application (this offer is still subject to validation of documents and valuation of the property you wish to purchase)
  5. The property will be valued by one of our valuation experts
  6. Once the property has been valued, you will receive your final offer from us
  7. Once you accept the offer, the attorneys will be instructed to start the transfer of the property into your name and the registration of the bond.
  8. You will need to sign your transfer documents at the transfer attorney and be requested to pay the transfer duties and transfer fees.
  9. You will then need to sign your bond registration documents and pay your bond registration costs. Use our calculators to work out what your costs may be.
  10. The whole process can take up to 3 months (in some cases longer) after which you can start the move into your new home.
