    For the brokers. How fast can a submission to settlement occur?
    Obviously the lender would need to be on one day assessment.

    What's your PB :)

    I've had loans settle a day after docs signed
    but getting to the assessor would take a few days - depends if a valuation is needed too.

    How long is a piece of string? We've had it all done (start to finish) in about 7 business days, but that was extremely favorable circumstances. Right now some lenders are taking that long just to start looking at an application.

    I've had documents signed in the morning and the loan settling that afternoon. Again it was exceptional circumstances which is never something you want to rely on.

    I would think upon approval the docs alone would take 3 days to get sent! Or in this technological age can they be emailed straight away?

    emailed. Some lenders can also settle on scanned docs. ANZ did this once.

    Also depends on if it's a refi or purchase.

    I'd say 10 - 14 days would be the quickest I can remember but certainly not the norm.

    Cheers

    CBA top up process can be very quick - have had a 48 hour submission to funding occur not too long ago (anomaly, they just actioned it very quickly).

    As a general guide, usually anything less than 2 weeks is leaving it too tight and will cause stress. Some lenders can speed things up via e-docs and accepting postal tracking, etc, but you definitely don't want to be relying on it. Will also impact lender choice.

    3 days to a a week.

    when the potential loss is big enough, you dont play the game with mainstream lenders

    From what I have read, if the vendor doesn't settle then really there is little the buyer can do for 14 days?

    On the flip side if the buyer doesn't settle then the vendor can choose to charge them the outstanding loan interest? Is that correct and how is this charged? I imagine outstanding loan amount * I/R * #days delayed settlement?

    My brother has been delayed settlement by about 6 weeks now due to a subdivision not going through. It was purchased subject to subdivision though!

    All depends on the terms of their agreement.
