Apply for a loan with your partner quickly and easily.


A joint loan is a type of loan two people in a relationship may apply for. The couple must live at the same address and have a recognised relationship (married, de facto, etc.) If a couple is approved for a joint loan, they are known as co-borrowers. That means they are both equally responsible for repaying the loan. Before applying, you should check if both borrowers meet our eligibility criteria.

Joint Loans

If you and your partner are looking to finance your dream wedding, share the cost of a car, or make a major home upgrade, a joint loan may improve your borrowing capacity.


Your Australia-based Personal Loan Advisor can help you through the application process so you can get moving on your plans sooner rather than later.
