    Its the norm when you hit the 50/50 bracket. If you were a gold plated applicant, a decision in principal could be instant. If you were a no no, that too could be instant. You need to wait out a few days, perhaps they will ask for confirmation docs like pay slips or utility bills.

    They will not take it into account, its the least of their concerns, what they will look into is what is your debt ratio compare to income and how much available credit you have.....if it is too high for their liking then probably will be a decline..
