The Loan Base Mortgage Process

Initial Review

We will conduct a quick review of your current situation over the phone. As part of this, we will gather high-level information about your current financial position and lending objectives. This will allow us to perform research into your scenario.

Proposal Preparation & Presentation

We will spend time researching your situation. This may involve us speaking with lenders to clarify lending policy, or to seek an exception or discretionary pricing for your particular circumstance. Once we have completed our research, we will then present our findings to you.

Decision Time

Take as much time as you need to consider your options. If and when you're happy to proceed, it's onward to step 4. If you want us to review alternatives, we're more than happy to.

Full Fact Find & Supporting Documentation

In order to prepare your loan application we will need to complete what is known as a "fact find". This will include gathering details around all relevant personal details, including current assets, income, and liabilities. We will also need to gather supporting documentation for your application which may include identification, payslips, tax returns and so on.

Application to Settlement

Once we have all of the necessary information and documents, we will prepare and lodge your application with the lender. We will then regularly follow up on this application until the loan has settled.

Regular Reviews

As premium brokers, we closely monitor your loans to ensure your finances are optimised relative to your circumstances and objectives. In some cases, we can help minimise your interest by refinancing to a new lender or negotiating discounts with your current lender. Essentially, we act as your trusted mortgage advisor, keeping an eye on the market so you don't have to.

Reviews from some of our recent clients

Excellent customer service
Reviewed by Rhys G
I have recently worked with Loan Base, in particular with Chris Gillis and Lauren Flood. The amount of work that they and their team did for me was absolutely amazing and very much above expectations. They liaised with all parties involved and assisted me over a very frustrating period of a year and Half after set back and set back of my off the plan purchase, They had got my loan approved then had to extend, change and renew the process all over again after each set back. We have now finally settled.

I could not recommend the team at Loan Base more highly. They are ahead of the rest in terms of knowledge and there guidance for the best possible outcome when applying for loans (home loan in particular) is second to none.
A seamless process with great results!
Reviewed by Esjee
Chris has recently helped me with the refinance of a loan. His product knowledge and willingness to look at various options resulted in getting the right loan for me. Chris made the whole process very easy from the initial contact until the settlement. Even after settlement he ensured that the interest rate quoted was retained irrespective of a rate increase by the lender.

Chris' "nothing is too hard" approach and friendly and professional advice made the whole process an excellent customer experience.
Definitely using Loan Base again
Reviewed by Tracy T
The team at Loan Base always went out of their way to meet and exceed my expectations and handled my refinance request very efficiently. I never got the impression that there were other clients more important than me as the team was always available to respond my queries.

When the lender indicated they would shortly be increasing their fixed rates, Chris managed to organise a last-minute rate lock for me, which was finalised just before the fixed rate would have otherwise increased substantially. I will definitely be using Loan Base for all of my mortgage needs going forward.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Reviewed by Terry M
I had a challenging case and was almost on the verge of getting another decline from the bank. However, the guys at Loan Base were very persistent, and due to their exceptional knowledge and work with the lender, my loan was finally approved.

I am so thankful for the exceptional work ethic and perseverance. They helped me every step of the way, guided me through out the whole process and reassured me when I was beginning to panic. I cannot thank you enough. Loan Base gets 5 star for service and I highly recommend them.

Secured me the best rate I've ever had
Reviewed by Alyson H
I was recently assisted by Chris and the team from Loan Base. Their communication, attention to detail and patience along with their sound knowledge and experience of the loan business made my purchase stress free and easy.

I was kept well-informed throughout the entire application, and I have no hesitation recommending Loan Base to others seeking assistance with a home loan. I will never be going directly to the banks again!
Highly recommended
Reviewed by James G
After taking some unpaid leave to go on holidays, my bank unexpectedly knocked me back for the full investment property mortgage I was hoping for. Loan Base managed to get me pre-approval for a much higher loan amount with a different lender, with minimal issues or fuss!

In addition to this, the team there are very knowledgeable, genuinely care about their clients, and always seem happy to discuss investment strategies and property prospects with me - all without charging me anything; so I would recommend them to anyone needing help with a mortgage in a heartbeat!
