The loan finder product information and supply
Material on this web site may contain general information about lenders’ products and services. Unless expressly stated otherwise, this information:

• does not form part of the terms and conditions for The Loan Finder products and services.
All applications for credit are subject to the various lenders’ normal credit approval criteria.

Description of services and information supplied
The Loan Finder is not a financial advisor and/or a mortgage broker. We do not provide any financial advice or mortgage broking services. The website and the services contained herein are designed to provide a link between you and a qualified and/or licensed financial advisor or a mortgage broker. By submitting the required information in the relevant field, a financial advisor or mortgage broker from a range of participating financial services organisations (a “participating financial services organisation”) is connected with you and will contact you to help you with your financial needs.
Similarly, where you have selected to receive a service from one of our service providers, your information will be passed on to the relevant service provider to enable delivery of the service you have selected to receive.
The participating financial services organisation and/or service provider is not employed by us. We do not sponsor, endorse, recommend or approve any financial services organisation and/or service provider, who offer services through The Loan Finder Website.
Whilst we make reasonable efforts to ensure that participating financial services organisation and/or service providers are qualified and licensed to provide their relevant services, we cannot and do not guarantee, warrant or represent that any participating financial services organisation and/or service provider who offers services through this website is licensed, qualified, or able to perform the relevant services. We therefore strongly recommend that you take all necessary measures and precautions before you engage the participating financial services organisation and/or service provider to act on your behalf and/or seek to rely on any information provided by the participating financial services organisation and/or service provider.
We cannot and do not guarantee that we have a participating financial services organisation and/or service provider allocated to your specific geographic area. Consequently, you agree and acknowledge that we may not be able to provide the service requested by you notwithstanding the submission of all required information on your part.
The Loan Finder website only compares a limited number of lenders and products and may therefore not be representative of all the loan products and options available in Australia.
The recommendation and or ranking of loan products is determined by calculating the Average Annual Percentage Rate (AAPR) of a loan. The AAPR formula is a recognised international measure of comparison and takes into account the loan amount, the interest rate, the upfront cost, the ongoing fees and discharge fees applicable to a loan and converts it into a single percentage rate. It does not however take into account different features of a loan such as redraw and offset benefits and their applicable costs if any.
While we have made every effort to ensure that information is free from error, The Loan Finder does not warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of Material on this web site. All information is subject to change without notice. The Loan Finder recommends that you seek independent advice before acting upon Material on this web site or Third Party Material. The Loan Finder does not guarantee that The Loan Finder website or Third Party websites will be free from viruses, or that access to The Loan Finder website or Third Party websites will be uninterrupted.
