OUR OBLIGATIONS TO YOU

Assessment of unsuitability for a credit contract – our obligations and your rights

Before we can provide credit to you, we are required to make an assessment as to whether the proposed credit contract is ‘not unsuitable’ for you. To do this we must make reasonable enquiries and verify that:

  • check_circle The loan will meet your objectives and requirements; and
  • check_circle You can meet the proposed repayments.

We will not be able to provide credit to you if our assessment shows that:

  • check_circle You will not be able to meet the proposed repayments without substantial hardship; or
  • check_circle The loan will not meet your objectives and/or requirements.

We must also take reasonable steps to verify your financial situation. This will require you to provide certain documents to us.

Requesting a copy of our assessment

Before entering into a credit contract, or at any time within 7 years of the date of the credit contract, you can request a written copy of our assessment. There is no fee for requesting a copy of our assessment.

If you ask to see our assessment within the first 2 years of the credit contract, we will provide you with a written copy of our assessment within 7 business days after we receive your request. Otherwise, we will provide you with a written copy of our assessment within 21 business days after we receive your request.

Fees And Charges

We will charge fees in relation to the provision of credit to you. The standard fees charged are an Establishment Fee (charged at the settlement of your loan) and an Account Maintenance Fee (charged monthly on the anniversary of the loan settlement date, while the loan is in place). Additional fees may apply if you miss any required loan repayments. Full details of these fees will be disclosed in the credit contract issued to you on approval of your loan application.

Disputes or Complaints

    What to do if you have a complaint or dispute?

    We are committed to providing our customers with the best possible service. If, at any time, we have not met our obligations – or you have a complaint about any of our services – please inform us so we can work towards a resolution. We will endeavor to deal with your complaint promptly, thoroughly and fairly.

    How to make a complaint and the complaints process?

    • In the first instance, please contact Fundo Loans’ complaints team on 02 9066 9660 or by email at: [email protected].
    • We may ask for additional information and request you to put your complaint in writing to ensure your issue is properly investigated.
    • In cases where your complaint will take longer to resolve, we will update you progressively.

Keeping You Informed

Our complaints team will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within one business day. If we are unable to resolve the complaint/dispute to your satisfaction within 10 business days, we will write to you, advising the procedures we will follow in investigating and handling your complaint.

Within 30 calendar days of the date on which you lodged the complaint with us, we will write to you advising you the outcome of the investigation and the reason/s for our decision, or, if required, we will inform you more time is needed to complete the investigation.

Still Not Satisfied

You may also refer the matter to the relevant External Disputes Resolution Scheme at any time, but if our internal process is still in progress, it may request that our internal processes be completed before considering the matter further.
