Tips For Getting A Bond Loan Approved

A Bond Loan is assessed in the same way as any other personal loan at Fair Go Finance. Here are our top tips when applying for a loan.

  1. Do you have a job and earn an income over $500 per week? (It can’t be solely from Centrelink benefits.) It must be paid into a bank account in your name. Please check with us first, if you are on probation.
  1. After you subtract all of your debts your currently pay, do you have enough money to afford this loan? (You can use our loan calculator to get an estimated weekly repayment.)
  1. Can you provide the supporting documents to validate your application? (We need to confirm your identity, where you live and what your income is.)
  1. Do you have bad credit? It’s Ok! At Fair Go Finance we can accept certain levels of bad credit. Depending on your credit score, it can affect if the loan is approved, the loan amount and loan term. If you are unsure about your credit report, you should obtain a free copy from Equifax and call our friendly customer service staff if you have any queries.
