  6. Sign the Documents
 

Sign the Documents

  • Once you receive the mortgage pack, make sure you carefully read the loan agreement and terms and conditions before signing the documents.
  • Once signed, return them as per the solicitor’s instructions, who will then arrange settlement.
  • Before settlement, we’ll need a copy of your Comprehensive Home Insurance.
  • We can organise this through our partner Allianz (although you of course can select your own insurer).

  7. Loan Settlement
 

Loan Settlement (the loan funds are disbursed as needed to complete the settlement)

  • A. If the transaction is to purchase a property, your solicitor or conveyancer will tell our solicitors who to pay. After settlement, the property will be transferred to your name and we will register the mortgage.
  • B. If you’re refinancing the loan, the proceeds will be paid to your outgoing financial intuition, after which the loan will be paid out and closed. We will then discharge the other banks mortgage and register our mortgage.
