Suitability of loans to your financial objectives
It is our duty to have a reasonable knowledge of your current financial situation and objectives before we can recommend a suitable arrangement that would meet your requirements.
As a credit licensee we are required to:
- Make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation, and your requirements and objectives
- Take reasonable steps to verify your financial situation
- Make an assessment about whether the credit contract is ‘not unsuitable’ for you (based on the inquiries and information obtained in the first two steps).
You as the consumer can request for a written copy of the assessment. If we supply that to you it must be free of charge however we are not required to give you a copy of the assessment if the lease is not entered.
