Online banking platform has ZERO security features
If I'd know how bad the online banking platform is with Click loans, I would not have gone ahead with the loan.
There is no security text msg or email to confirm payment made from your accont or was made. Nothing. If you have money in a offset account it makes you extremely vulnerable to hackers. Poor security service. every bank provides extra levels of security when making payments. This company don't care if your account gets hacked into. All you've got is a two lot of numbers and you've accessed someone's account. Click loans - fix this as a priority please.
With a little help from a friend
Samantha Tannous helped me when nobody else could. I had been searching for a loan for 6 months from banks and brokers, with no luck. Then Samantha came to my rescue. She helped me through the process when I was struggling to get my information together. I couldn't have done it without her.

Seamless process and brilliant support
Lester provided my wife and I outstanding support and advice during the process. We are repeat customers and will definitely continue to use his services. He focused on getting the best outcome for us, and helped us save a pretty penny. Massive thanks to Lester and the click team for making the process as easy and stress free as possible.
Excellent Service & Support
Lester gave me exceptional support and advice during my interactions with him! I felt like he geniunely cared about getting the best outcome for me and the house I was wanting to buy! Its rare to find service like that these days and the big banks could learn a thing or two as to why people prefer working with Brokers like Lester!
Great customer service and quick
Lester was a great broker to deal with recommend him 5 stars click loans give you options with the loans and also quick loan process I would give 5 stars
Home Loan Applic Review
I had great customer service from Ted Vo, Biana and Tori. They are a great team.
Finalisation of loan documents is a headache. However Tori has been in constant contact with me and chasing them up.
The interest rate was a bit high - however our loan was complicated and low doc.
Very happy with the help and performance of click loans.
More interest rate rises
I have two loans outstanding with Click / Pepper - an owner occupied loan and an investment loan. I took out both loans in early 2018 at rates of 3.99% and 4.14%, which were good rates at the time. Both rates, however, increased to 4.17% and 4.32% in July 2018 and now I have just been notified that both rates have increased again to 4.34% and 4.49% from 22 March.
The wording in the latest letter advising of the rate increases is exactly the same as the one I received last year. It reads "As you may have seen in recent media, many Australian lenders have increased interest rates in response to market conditions. Regrettably, we are not immune to the market. Whilst the decision was not taken lightly, the interest rate applying to your loan will increase from 22 March 2019." I have not noticed any recent rate rises in the media. There is talk that the RBA may decrease the official cash rate later in the year.
I am now looking elsewhere for a better deal.
Started off good.....then the rate rises kept coming
Click Loans work with other lending institutions. My investment home loan ended up being financed by Pepper Money. I started with a good rate of 3.89 in July 2017 but then rose to 4.07% in July 2018. I now (March 2019) received a letter saying that the rate will be going up to 4.24% in 4 days' time. The letter was worded with the EXACT same wording as the previous rate rise letter - "As you may have seen in recent media, many Australian lenders have increased interest rates in response to market conditions. Regrettably, we are not immune to the market. Whilst the decision was not taken lightly, the interest rate applying to your loan will increase from 22 March 2019." These were the exact same words as the previous rate rise letter.
No, I have not noted any recent rate rises in the media - nor had I prior to the first rate rise.
I'm now looking for a better deal. Reduce home loans looks like it has the best investment home loan deal at the moment at 3.79% with a $10 monthly offset account fee but no upfront fees.
If anyone can better that for a $275,000 loan on a house worth around $650,000 feel free to get in contact with me.
Refinanced less a year ago 3.64% had rise soon after now have had another rise to 3.76%. Discussed issue and reply was unconvincing as to why increased in current marketplace
Our second loan with this group has been a nightmare from start to finish but we had no time to change to another company.
Months of back and forth to establish the loan and now twice have had a interest rise with NO notice...just tell us after they have upped our interest rate.
Stay far far away from them.
Above and beyond
We recently refinanced with click loans in order to support a new home loan as well. The re finance was easy and straight forward . No problems. Fees fine and allowed us to cash some funds towards our new home . Follow up and induction with Macquarie not as great but as soon as I mentioned this I received a call from my broker, Lester. In terms of the home loan our broker Lester went above and beyond to try and support us through that process and it was a lengthy and stressful process . Being a sole trader , the homeloan process was a bit ad hoc and invasive with a lot of confusion about how the bank applies the new royal commission rules. This was very frustrating and difficult considering we had our 20% plus costs and were after a very small homeloan . Click loans were great through this process, macquaire not so much. We were also told no fees and will be following this up with click loans as upon settlement for our home loan we were hit with quite high fees from macquaire we weren't expecting. Lastly,the conveyancers for macquaire were slow to advise figures and loan amount and so settlement was also more stressful than it needed to be. Mathu, our settlement officer was very responsive and helpful but again the Macquarie side made things difficult. Overall I think the click loans service is very good as we had few options with us earning some income through abn but I feel Macquarie is taking advantage of that and their service is very low touch meaning the loan service through them may be less helpful than a big bank. We will see.
Great product and service
I recently refinanced with Click Loans and Mathu and Mark were fantastic. Highly recommend and wish I had of done this years ago!
Hoodwinked with Fees!
So disappointed, that the company I had trusted for a number of years could treat me like this.
I recently contacted Clickloans to enquire about obtaining an extra amount through my home loan. After asking about the fees involved, I agreed to re-finance, adding another loan and moving over to Macquarie, for a better rate.
Once the settlement had been finalised, to my dismay – the fees charged were more than double what had been given to me in an email! I was quoted $613, but actually got charged $1350. The fees also included an erroneous amount taken from the settlement statement with no reference or description at all.
To make matters worse, all inquires have gone unanswered.
How can I possibly recommend Clickloans when they brazenly deceive about fees?
It always starts out great, then the rate rises quickly follow
In less than 2 years, my 3.89% P&I home loan has risen to 4.47%. I'm still in the very drawn out process of trying to get a rate review, but all indications are they will be trying to sell me another refinance. Trying to talk directly with the lender gets you referred back to Click Loans, who start you straight back down the refinance path. I took out the initial loan with them, refinanced after 12 months to get a better rate, followed by multiple rate rises, meanwhile, they advertise even lower interest rates on their website, currently claiming 3.7%.
I would suggest extreme caution when dealing with Click Loans, I've kept a close eye on Westpac interest rate rises over the same period, during which rates were reduced by 0.08% in June 2017 and increased 0.14% August 2018, completely eliminating any advantage of going through Click Loans.
Just based on my most recent experience, they would need to be well over 0.5% cheaper on the initial rate to match what the big banks are offering over the long term. 8 years with Westpac before this and I didn't see anywhere near that sort of rate rise.
Currently I'm about 2 weeks into trying to speak to someone about a rate review, rather than going through another refinance, it seems everyone is too busy to talk about anything buy a refinance.
Great Team, Great product- Refinanced easily...
The Click Home Loan team has been very helpful especially Ted and Mathu who have processed my consolidation / refinance very quick and thorough. They’ve been in contact with me in every step of the way till the loan was settled. Highly recommend Ted as he has been very helpful throughout the process. Thanks for the support and I know I will be with this company for a long time for my mortgage. Keep up the good work Click Team. I highly recommend these guys for anyone who wants hassle free service.
April 4th 2019 Update: Rate rise within 6 months...
I got a Click Home Loans/Pepper - an owner occupied loan. I took this loan around October 2018 at rates of 3.99%. This final rate also not the rate at the starting of negotiation time and it was around 3.79%. Somehow current loan was settled to 3.99% now I have just been notified that rates has increased to 4.16%, 22nd March 2019, just within 6 months.
The recent letter I got says "As you may have seen in recent media, many Australian lenders have increased interest rates in response to market conditions. Regrettably, we are not immune to the market. Whilst the decision was not taken lightly, the interest rate applying to your loan will increase from 22 March 2019."As I am always in touch with the market news and I have not noticed and rate rise news in media recently and in fact there are talks that RBA may decrease the official cash rate.
Now this incident influenced me to look elsewhere.
The customer service was great.
Staff made good effort.
Peter was informative, available when I needed to clarify issues and very helpful.
Satisfied with the rate.
Click loans have been a pleasure to deal with a very prompt and helpful team. I was dealing with Peter and I have to say I couldn’t be happier with his knowledge and help getting our loan approved when we had so much trouble with other lenders.
The best Team
The team has been very helpful especially Lester and Mathu who has processed my consolidation very quick and thorough. They’ve been in contact with me in my wife every step of the way till the loan was settled. Highly recommend Lester as a broker as he has been very helpful Thru out the process. Thanks for the support and I know I will be with this company for a long time to deal with my future mortgages.
Excellent Customer Service
In my last 2 years of relationship with Click Loans and Lester as the broker, I have applied for 4 loans with my first in 2016. The process on all four occasions was smooth. Customer service at its best with Lester going above and beyond expectations. Something that probably shows the culture and best practice applied at Click Loans. The experience this time around was again up to the mark, very transparent and Lester being very flexible in his approach. Click Loans will always be my first choice and will not shy from letting friends and family benefit from it.
Perfect example of excellent customer service and professionalism
I have been dealing with Lester for 2 years now from my 1st Click Loan in 2016 to 3 more later on in the year. Its a pleasure to deal with some one like Lester who is very professional and always ready to go above and beyond your expextations. All the 4 loans I have taken with Click Loans, Lester was very helpful each time and was very thorough with the requirements. Some one who does not mind to return your call back even if he is on a day off or on leave.
Just a gem of a person to work with and I can not go any where else because it seems so easy to work with him. Thanks for all your help Lester. As usual, the process this time around was also smooth as a butter.
