Applying for a home equity loan or line of credit is simple, and our experienced bankers are available to help you every step of the way. Best of all, typically you can access your funds in just 3-4 weeks after you apply and are approved!
Apply Online or get a Personalized Quote. You may also visit us at any one of our 20 Branches and we’ll help you determine the best home equity product for your needs and complete an application. To speed things up, speak with a branch banker in advance to find out what supporting documents you can bring, such as pay stubs and financial statements.
Next, we will verify your information, check your credit score, determine the value of your property (which may require an appraisal), and obtain copies of your title insurance and flood certification, if applicable. If we need any additional documentation, we’ll contact you.
We will let you know if your application is approved once we complete our review. Upon approval, we’ll schedule a closing with you to finalize our loan agreement. The closing can be held at your local branch or other location.
In most cases, you will have access to your funds three days after the closing – either via a disbursement (for home equity loans) or checks (for home equity lines of credit).
Once completed, a Bank Rhode Island representative will contact you to provide more information about your application and to answer any questions you may have.
