  3. The bank will evaluate the property to ascertain its worth.
  4. You will then receive a quotation showing the approved home loan amount, interest rate and terms and conditions.
  5. Once you have signed off on the quote, the bank will formally grant the loan, instructing the bond attorney to register the bond.
