We have restored access to our internet banking and mobile services. Our contact centre is experiencing high demand and we ask for your patience as our team works through the backlog. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Whether you’re applying for a new home loan, looking to move your home loan or topping up your existing home loan, you can start by talking to our home loan specialists.
Our home loan specialists can walk you through the process of buying a home and applying for a home loan. They'll answer any questions you might have and discuss what your options are with you.
You can meet our Mobile Mortgage Managers anywhere it suits or set up an appointment with our Banking Specialists in selected Kiwibank branches.
Conditional approval will give you an idea of how much money you’ll be able to borrow.
To apply for conditional approval, please talk to our home loan specialists and they'll help you with your application.
Once your application has been submitted, we'll be in touch within 10 business days. If your application is urgent, please call 0800 000 654.
Having conditional approval means we’ve agreed to loan you a certain amount of money based on the information you’ve provided. At this point, you’re not committed to anything and our offer lasts for 90 days as long as you continue to meet the criteria.
This means you’ll be able to move quickly and make an offer when you find a house you want and you can focus on looking at houses within your price range.
Once you've made an offer and signed a sales and purchase agreement for a property, it's time to go unconditional with your home loan.
We may need additional information from you such as the property valuation. Our home loan specialist will talk you through exactly what we need to complete the process.
Once your application is unconditionally approved, we'll finalise our home loan offer and discuss the loan structure options suitable to your needs with you.
If you're happy to go ahead with our home loan offer, you'll need to sign some documents and send them back to us.
We'll send the final documents to your lawyer, and they'll need to schedule the settlement date.
Your loan will then be drawn down and the money transferred to your vendor. Once the vendor receives it, your lawyer will complete the process and you’ll be able to pick up the keys.
Before you apply for a home loan, you’ll need the following information handy.
