This place is a joke.

Cheap rate but the worst service. You get what you pay for. I thought supporting a smaller business would be the right thing but they are a joke. Small mindset staff by a small team. Incompotent.

The process to apply for a Firstmac loan was agonising and time consuming. We used Lendi to apply and experienced poor communication, changing requirements/documentation requirements. From first contact it took 4 weeks to obtain pre-approval and now they request further information, not even mentioned during the original request e.g. they now want a retirement strategy in case we still have a loan when we retire, our assets to debt ratio is 5 to 1 and investment income is more than required to pay the loan. The delays and stress are not worth it.
