BROKER LICENSING LEGISLATION :

has been in force since 01.07.2010. Mortgage brokers are now required to place additional emphasis on documenting and verifying that a borrower’s financial position is correct and that the loan being proposed is suitable for the client with manageable loan repayments.

Melbourne Mortgage Finance now has access to affiliates who offer

  • a detailed and carefully-monitored DEBT REDUCTION package and
  • a detailed and monitored INVESTMENT PROPERTY ACQUISITION package.

Please call if you or any of your clients would like an introduction to either programme.

Excellent deals are available for clients with good equity to REFINANCE to much lower rates. See table above.

Contact Melbourne Mortgage Finance for assistance with a new loan application or scenario discussion. There is NO CHARGE for arranging loans which proceed to settlement.
