We will need information from you
Under the NCCP Act, we are obliged to ensure that any loan, lease, or principal increase to a loan we arrange for you is not unsuitable for you. To decide this, we will need to ask you some questions in order to assess whether the loan or lease is not unsuitable. 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 that financial situation.
Credit will be unsuitable if at the time of the assessment, it is likely that at the time the loan is made:
- you could not pay or only pay with substantial hardship;
- the credit will not meet your requirements and objectives.
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 a significant amount of information. It is therefore very important that the information you provide us is accurate. 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 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.
