      How long does it take to get a land loan approved? For 20% deposit, do you have to pay mortgage insurance?

        Hi Timoth,

        Thanks for reaching out to finder.

        AMP did not give a specific timeframe as to how soon they can get you approved for a land loan but generally speaking, land loan process may take average 4-6 weeks. The entire processing time though, may vary depending on several factors like how soon you can submit all the required documents to the lender and which state you live in.

        You don’t have to pay for a mortgage insurance if you pay 20% deposit. It is only applicable if you borrow more than 80% of the property value.

        I hope this helps.

        Cheers,
        Charisse
