Suitability of the Loan
We are required to assess the suitability of the loan you have requested, under Sections 128, 129 and
133 of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009. These Sections are concerned with whether
or not the loan you seek is “unsuitable”.
Under Section 131, we are obliged to advise you that we will not participate in the arrangement of a loan
for you, if that loan would be unsuitable and under Sections 128 and 133, we are obliged to refuse an
increase in your credit limit if that would also be deemed unsuitable.
Suitability or unsuitability is assessed in accordance with the following criteria:
1. Whether or not you will be able to comply with the financial obligations under the contract, without
substantial hardship, if at all.
2. Whether or not the contract will meet your requirements and objectives.
3. Whether or not the contract meets requirements imposed by regulation, from time to time.
4. It involves us, as a Credit Provider, making enquiry about your financial circumstances.
5. According to whether or not we believe the information to be true.
In accordance with Section 132, if you are successful with your application and enter into a credit contract with us because the loan is not deemed unsuitable, you may request a copy of that assessment any time during the following 7 years. This will be provided at no charge to you.
If your copy is requested within 2 years, we will provide it within 7 days. If your request is received after
the second year, we may take up to 21 days to provide you with a copy.
