Conditional approval

If you’re applying in a branch or via a Home Loan Expert, we can often give a conditional approval on the spot (subject to eligibility and responsible lending inquiries) for straight forward applications where all required documentation is provided.

Note, if there's a second applicant they will also need to agree to the application and a credit check.

Start house hunting!

A conditional approval gives you an idea of how much you can borrow, based on conditions and responsible lending inquiries. With this you can now start looking for a house that you could call home.

Featured rates.

* Min 20% equity, plus salary credit to a Westpac transaction account. Not available with any other Westpac home loan offers, promotions or package discounts. Loans for business or investment purposes excluded.

If you don’t pay amounts when they’re due, your loan account may exceed its limit and the rate of interest that’ll be applied to the overlimit amount will be the interest rate + 5% p.a.
