Home Renovation Loan FAQs

Want to learn more about our personal loans and how they work? Find out all the answers to our most common questions here.

The basic eligibility criteria you must meet before submitting an application:

  • Be at least 19 years of age.
  • Be employed on a permanent or casual basis.
  • Have a consistent income going into your own bank account for the last 90 days.
  • Be in control of your finances and be handling existing financial commitments comfortably.
  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident with a fixed address.
  • Have an active email address, phone number, and online banking account in your name that belongs to you.

We accept a wider range of credit history than a bank or a prime lender, but we do not recommend submitting an application if:

  • You are currently or recently bankrupt (you must be three years discharged and in control of your finances)
  • You are not comfortably repaying your existing financial obligations

The interest rate, fees and charges applied to your loan will depend on your individual circumstances and the information verified during the loan assessment. It will also depend on our assessment criteria, loan amount, and loan term for which you qualify.

Use our loan repayment estimate calculator to get a guide on what your repayments could be. To get an idea of what rates, fees and charges are associated with our loan products, visit our rates and fees page.

We use the information you provide in the online application form as well as information on your bank statements to make sure that you qualify for a loan product during our credit assessment. If you don't qualify, your application will be declined without a credit check being conducted.

Once we have verified that you meet our non-credit report-related criteria, we do perform a credit check as part of our credit assessment, where an inquiry will be left on your credit file.

We will never perform a credit check without your express consent, which you provide to us when you apply for a loan with Jacaranda Finance. We store your acknowledgement and consent for seven years, and it can be supplied on demand.

There are four credit reporting bodies that we may use to conduct a credit check:

  • Equifax
  • Experian
  • illion
  • Talefin

Review our Privacy Policy for more information.

You can apply for varying loan amounts with Jacaranda, depending on your needs. With our Express Personal Loan, you can borrow between $3,000 and $25,000. 

For detailed information about who our products are designed for, please review our Target Market Determinations.

Use our loan repayment estimate calculator to get a guide on what your repayments could be. To get an idea of what rates, fees and charges are associated with our loans, visit our rates and fees page.

Our loan application process has been designed to be as simple and quick as possible, as we know how important it is to receive your funds in a timely manner. How quickly you can apply for a personal loan and receive your funds will depend on your situation.

Applying for a loan with Jacaranda Finance takes most people 5-12 minutes1, but it could take longer depending on a number of factors such as but not limited to how fast you are at typing or if you have all the required information on hand.

After applying, most customers get an outcome on their loan application on the same day during normal business hours once we have received all of the supporting information we require. We do not guarantee same-day outcomes for all customers.2

Once an applicant has been approved and they have signed a contract, we automatically attempt to release the money to the applicant's bank account. Most customers have a New Payments Platform (NPP) bank account and receive the money in their bank account within 60 seconds. For other customers, the money will be available overnight on weekdays and overnight the following business day if approved on a weekend or public holiday.3

Anyone unsatisfied with their loan for any reason can return the principal funds, including any payments made to third parties on your behalf, within a 48-hour cooling-off period and cancel their loan4.

If you purchased a vehicle or other item with your loan, Jacaranda does not require the seller to cancel the sale or release the funds back to you. Returning your purchase to the dealer, to the seller or to Jacaranda Finance doesn't qualify as a loan cancellation. The loan is only cancelled once the funds have been received and have cleared within the Jacaranda Finance bank account.
