How long does it take to refinance a home loan?

All FAQs

Refinancing usually happens within a 60 day period from start to finish. There are 5 main steps to refinancing: application, approval, contract, settlement, payment.

When you apply online your application process will take you about 20 mins to complete. Once completed we'll tell you whether or not your refinancing application is approved — or declined. Generally, this is pretty quick, but it will depend on the complexity of your application and the number of applications we are processing at the time. The quickest we've ever fully approved an applicant from the time they submitted their application was 58 minutes. Once you are approved we will send over a contract for you so you can sign.

Next is the final settlement and payment process. This is where the money changes hands. When you are refinancing, the money is transferred between loan providers (your current lender and Tic:Toc) on the settlement date. The settlement date depends on when both banks have everything they need to transfer the loan. This is generally worked out by our solicitor/conveyancer and your current bank’s settlement department. It can take up to 3 weeks.
