Do you qualify? Applying for a Keystart loan

To apply for a home loan, we need to get some details about you and your financial situation. Before we get underway, there are some quick questions we need to ask to find out if you'll qualify for a Keystart home loan.

Start your application

  1. 1. Do you qualify?

    We have some eligibility criteria for our home loans. You can find out if you qualify within five minutes. We call this pre-qualification. This is the first step in applying for a Keystart loan.

    Scroll down to get started.

  2. 2. Apply for a loan

    If you qualify (yay!), you can go on and start your loan application online. We'll need some more detailed information from you. This step will take between 20-30 minutes and you can save your progress at any time.

    Scroll down to first complete pre-qualification then continue on to apply.
