I found this bank is a little conservative when applying for a loan. If their computer program says you can't afford it, they don't approve you - even if you are changing to a lower interest rate and currently paying double the repayments!
The personal loans I have utilised through The Newcastle Permanent have been simple to obtain and tailored to suit my needs. The interest rates are always competitive and the repayments are set at a comfortable level for your finances. Every product and service from the Newcastle Permanent is fully backed by the company. I have never experienced a problem when dealing with this institution.From the house loan to the on line banking system The Newcastle Permanent shines.
I am very happy with the Newcastle Permanent Building Society as they were very helpful, excellent interest rate. The manager bent over backwards when we changed from another institution who didn't care about our situation.
It gets harder and harder these days to deal with human beings doing human being things, the Permanent knows exactly that the difference is connecting with people and make it pleasantly obvious they love to assist. I've had a number of different experiences over the last decade and I love dealing with humans. Personalities are hard to come by, that's what the Perm means to me!
Staff at the Cessnock Branch at Newcastle Permanent cannot do enough for you, when applying for a loan ! Newcastle Perm is the oldest Building Society in Australia and their track record speaks for it self !
