11. Additional Disclaimers around Property Twins Fees & Charges and Credit Advice
11.1 Borrowing Capacity Assessment: Borrowing capacity will be assessed on the basis of the information you provide to us on the Fact Find form, and it may not constitute the full picture of your financial situation. This assessment is in no way a confirmation that a lender will approve the loan, as the approvals are subject to lender policies, and will be assessed when a full application is lodged with the lender. Additionally, any advice is based on current lending calculators available, and is subject to change by the lenders at any point in time.
11.2 Upfront valuations: Upfront valuations are subject to lender policies, and may be unavailable where Loan to Value ratio is higher than 80%
11.3 ‘No cost to you service’: No cost to you service refers to Property Twins’ services provided to you, and does not refer to lender charges and costs
11.4 Lender commission claw backs: Whilst Property Twins’ home loan services are at no cost to you, and Property Twins’ are remunerated by the lenders for the lending arrangements, where you refinance from the lender within two years, Property Twins’ commissions may be clawed back by the lender. As such, before Property Twins engage in providing you with home loan services, including refinance services, Property Twins may issue you a Quote noting the fees that you will be liable to pay Property Twins Finance Pty Limited, should the commission be clawed back, due to you refinancing the loan. This Quote will be required to be signed by you, prior to Property Twins providing any credit advice to you.
11.5 Other fees and charges: You may be liable to pay fees and charges to the lender or other parties. Some of these fees and charges may be payable by you even if you choose not to proceed with an application for the loan, or your application is not successful, or we recommend that you remain in your existing loan (if applicable).
11.6 Income tax advice: The services Property Twins provide do not constitute income tax advice, as such, please seek tax advice directly from your Tax Accountant.
11.7 Lender rebates / cash backs: From time to time, lenders provide refinance or cash back offers, where a property is refinanced to them from another financial institution (outside of their group). These rebates are based on lender qualifying criteria. Lenders reserve the right to no longer offer these rebates at any time, depending on when the refinance application is lodged or change in lender policies. Lenders may require you to adhere to specific terms and conditions, and where these conditions are not satisfied, the lender rebate may not be applicable. As mortgage brokers, under responsible lending, we make recommendations of the most suitable lender for your specific circumstances. As such a lender providing the lender rebate may not be suitable to you. Accordingly, we reserve the right to make recommendations to you, and may include lenders not offering the lender rebate.
Generally, where approved, the refinance rebates are paid by the lenders 4 to 8 weeks after settlement.
Lender may choose to pay the rebate in form of another incentive, such as a gift card.
The rebate will assist borrowers in covering costs associated with their refinance.
Property Twins do not take responsibility of lender policy changes or you not having ‘serviceability’ with a lender providing the rebate.
11.8 Interest rates on offer: The advertised interest rate may reflect a rate available for a lender. However, it is the assessment of your circumstances, goals and needs that facilitate lender recommendation. As such, you may not qualify for the lowest interest rate available on the market. Additionally, based on our research and product features, the product with the lowest interest rate may not be suited to your goals.
The interest rates on offer by lenders are determined based on a number of factors, including Loan to Value ratio, loan amount borrowed, location of the security, to name a few. As such, a borrower may not qualify for an interest rate if they do not meet the lender’s criteria.
Depending on the lender fees and charges, whilst your interest rate may be x.xx%, the comparison rate will differ.
11.9 Comparison rate: All comparison rates are based on $150,000 home loan for a term of 25 years.This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
