We will need information from you
Under the NCCP Act, we are obliged to ensure that any loan or principal increase to a loan we arrange for you is not unsuitable for you. To determine this, we will need to ask you some questions in order to assess whether the loan is not unsuitable for you. The law requires us to:
make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives;
make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation;
take reasonable steps to verify your financial situation, and your ability to repay the loan that we may provide you.
A loan will be deemed unsuitable if at the time of our assessment, it is likely that:
For example, if you can only repay by selling your principal place of residence, it is presumed that the loan will cause substantial hardship unless the contrary is proved. For this reason we must ask you to provide us with information relating to your financial situation, requirements and objectives. It is therefore very important that the information you provide us is accurate and complete.
If you ask within 7 years of the date of the loan contract, lease contract, or principal increase, we must provide you with a copy of our credit assessment of your application. We are only required to give you a copy of the credit assessment if a loan or lease contract is entered or the credit limit is increased.

You should explain the details of your complaint as clearly as you can. You may do this verbally or in writing.
