  • Can I Still get a home loan with a poor credit history?

    Eligibility for a home loan depends on many things, which includes your credit score. Your credit score is calculated by an assessment of how risky or trustworthy you are to possible lenders in regards to paying your loan back. Everyone's situation is different, and there are some lenders that will consider poor credit rating, defaults and even discharged bankrupt. Reach out to us if your credit history is of concern to you regarding a new home loan.
  • When does settlement take place after I put a deposit down?

    The settlement date is usually listed on the contract of sale and this period varies by state and territory. This is important because there are different penalties if you do not settled by the agreed date, so make sure you check this before exchanging contracts. When the agreed settlement date arrives, you can pick up the keys to your new place!
