How do I apply for a Commonwealth Bank mortgage?

When applying for any home loan, you will need various documents to establish your identity, your financial situation, employment status and details about the property.

Eligibility

Each Commonwealth Bank product has specific eligibility criteria, but some will apply to all products. For example:

  • Age. You must be over 18 years of age.
  • Residency. You should be a resident of Australia.
  • Employment. You should have a regular source of income.

Documents required

When you apply for a mortgage with Commonwealth Bank, you are required to provide certain information, so make sure you have all your documents ready before you apply. The documents you will be expected to provide are:

📄 Property details. You can start a loan enquiry before you've bought a property. But to complete an application you need the address of the property and a signed contract of sale.

📄 Identification documents. You will need identification such as a driver's licence, passport or birth certificate.

📄 Proof of income documents. Recent payslips can establish your income. If you bank with CommBank already, you may be able to prove your income digitally.

    Hi,
    I am just wanting to know if Commonwealth allow a split family pledge? I have found a property I wish to buy and my parents and my parents in law would like to share the guarantee against the property, rather than putting the full amount up on their own. Is this possible? I have no other loans or credit cards, stable employment and a good credit history.
    Thanks

      Hi Violet,
      thanks for the question.

      This will be decided on a case-by-case basis, so you might wish to contact CBA directly to find out if this would be something you would be able to do.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

    Do lenders ever approve loans to people on disability pension, if they have 20% deposit and want to only borrow 60K, and have no other debts.The amounts to repay are very affordable, compared to the rent they currently are paying?

      Hi Caroline,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      You can read more about home loans for pensioners and you can enquire with a mortgage broker to discuss your needs. The broker will then be able to draw upon their panel of lenders to find one that’s likely to review your application.

      Generally, a lender will review your application on a case-by-case basis but they will take into account your age, assets, and debts, as well as the amount of benefit you receive, to determine whether or not you can comfortably service the loan.

      You may be required to provide evidence of funds to complete the deposit, bank statements showing your pension being deposited into your bank account (normally 6 months), and a letter from Centrelink confirming the status of your pension.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks,
      Belinda

    How much deposit would you need to buy a rental/investment property?
    I earn 160k before tax so I could easily top up payments (by up to $800pw), just don’t have much saved yet

      MarcJanuary 5, 2015Staff

      Hi Paul,
      thanks for the question.

      You will usually need a deposit of at least 5 – 20% of the purchase price of the property. Keep in mind that this will depend on the lender and the specific loan, and also note that borrowing with a deposit of less than 20% will come with Lender’s Mortgage Insurance costs, which is a fee charged to you to cover the risk of having a smaller deposit.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.
