Documents needed to apply for a Beyond Bank Australia home loan
Beyond Bank will require you to provide some personal information that can help to prove your identity. This documentation is required by law and must be provided to the bank before your home loan can be finalised.
- Tax File Number. Beyond Bank will need to have your Tax File Number (TFN) on hand to include on the loan paperwork.
- Proof of Identification. You will be required to provide 100 points of identification.
You will also need to provide several pieces of documentation pertaining to the purchase of your home. Each home loan may require different documentation, so be sure to talk with your agent to see what your specific requirements are. However, here is a list of the most common property documentation required:
- Property valuation. When you obtain a loan from the bank, a proper assessment will need to be done on the property to determine its true value. This will ensure that the loan you are obtaining is equal to the value of the home being purchased.
- Proof of title for property. Beyond Bank will need to obtain a copy of the title for the property being purchased. This will guarantee that the party selling you the property is the actual owner of the property and has the rights to sell it.
- Property sales contract. Before closing on your loan, the bank will need to have a copy of the sales contract for the property. This will provide all the details about the sale of the property.
Although you will provide Beyond Bank with your financial information at the initial stages of the application, you will also need to provide proof of that information. The bank will ask for detailed information about your earnings, assets and expenses. You’ll need to provide:
- Proof of earnings. You must provide documentation that can prove your annual earnings. If you earn a wage, copies of your payslips should be adequate. If you are self-employed you may need to submit copies of your tax returns.
- Documentation for outstanding debt. If you have any outstanding debt that you listed on your home loan application, you will need to provide Beyond Bank with a copy of the latest statement for those accounts.
- Proof of assets. Beyond Bank will need documents that can prove the value of any additional assets or income that you disclosed on your initial home loan application.
Beyond Bank offers a number of attractive home loan options, but make sure to seek expert advice and compare your options so you find the best loan available for your needs.
