This document provides you with information relating to our activities and those of our credit representatives. It contains information about various fees and charges that may be payable by you to us, as well as about certain commissions we may receive from a licensee when we are acting as a credit representative, or we pay to certain third parties.

What is a Credit Representative?

A ‘credit representative’ is a person who has been authorised by a credit licensee to engage in specified credit activities on behalf of the licensee. Our licensee is MC Mortgage Solutions Pty Ltd.

What is Credit Assistance?

We give you credit assistance when:

  • we assist you to apply for a particular loan or lease;
  • we suggest you apply for a particular loan or lease (or suggest you apply for an increase to an existing loan); or
  • we suggest you remain in your current loan or lease.

The assessment we need to do before giving you credit assistance. 

Before we provide credit assistance to you, we assess whether the particular loan or lease is suitable for you. To do this, we need to make reasonable inquiries and verify that:

  • the loan or lease or increase will meet your requirements and objectives; and
  • you can meet the proposed repayments.

We won’t be able to give you credit assistance if our assessment shows that:

  • you won’t be able to meet the proposed repayments without substantial hardship; or
  • the loan or lease won’t meet your requirements or objectives.

Getting a copy of our assessment.

If we provide you with credit assistance, you can ask us for a copy of our assessment any time up to 7 years after we provide you with a credit assistance quote. To request a copy please contact us.   We will provide you with a copy:

  • within 7 business days after the day we receive your request – provided you make the request within 2 years of the date of our credit assistance quote; or
  • otherwise, within 21 business days after the day we receive your request.

Commissions

Commissions we receive from our licensee

Loan Contracts such as Home Loans, Investment Property Loans and Personal Loans
