How to speed up your home loan approval

Asking how long it takes to get a loan approved is like asking how long a piece of string is. Every application is unique; the duration between your first contact with your bank or broker, and approval can never be predetermined. There are, however, some things you can do to help hurry your application along. 

Although very rare, same-day loan approval is possible depending on the lender’s criteria, the complexity of the deal and turnaround time. It is possible when the client’s lending position is relatively straightforward in terms of employment, asset and liability position. Also, if a valuation was not required due to a low LVR, and both parties are happy with the contract price.
If you are not prepared, it could take up to a month. The most common reason for a delay is a lender’s turnaround time to assessment, especially when some lenders have competitive offerings and experience larger application volumes. Still, a lack of preparation can cause this delay to snowball. When there are such delays, and then a lender must organize a valuation or request further information, this can lead to lengthy process time.
