How we are paid.

We feel it's important you understand how we are paid, after all we ask the exact questions to you when applying for a home loan. Most of the time, our services are completely free. That’s because instead of being paid by you, we receive revenue from our product suppliers such as banks and some non-banks.

Fees

EasyStreet Mortgages Limited may charge the following fees for financial advice:

  • Commercial Property Purchase

  • Speciality Residential Home Loan purchase - Either the result of credit impairment like defaults or the loan is complex by nature. We will inform of you when this is the case.

  • Loan is intended to be with a lender for less than 30 months. 

  • The lending circumstances are complex in nature and require a great deal of pre-application work.


We do also reserve the right to charge fees at $217.50 + GST per hour. We may do this when charging a percentage of the loan amount isn't appropriate for the circumstances.


Note, we will inform you of any fees being applicable. This may be when confirming an approval, and may not be at the very start of our engagement.

Commission Clawback Policy

If a mortgage is repaid within 30 months of your mortgage settlement, or insurance policy is cancelled within 24 months EasyStreet Mortgages Limited (EasyStreet) will have to repay some of the 'upfront' commission received. This must be repaid to the Lender or Insurer. This is known as ‘commission clawback'.

 

If EasyStreet is charged with a commission clawback, due to early settlement of the mortgage or insurance arranged for you, then EasyStreet will ask you to pay $217.50 + GST per hour up to $3,000, for the services provided to you. If this is to exceed $3,000 due to the complexity of your application, we will inform you in writing.

  • *This $3,000 has been calculated on an average of 12 hours of advice, negotiation and administration to complete and submit your loan/insurance application to the provider, at our hourly rate of $217.50 + GST per hour.

  • These service charges are in no way associated with any fees EasyStreet may have charged at settlement. This is typical with complex applications.

  • In EasyStreet's opinion, the early repayment of the mortgage was driven by an exceptional change of circumstance for the Client

 

Commission clawbacks are in no way associated with any broker fee EasyStreet may have charged for arranging non-Bank lending.
