Over 55, Don't bother
I needed a place to live in a hurry so started looking for one. I contacted Lendi to help arrange finance. The initial contact was very positive and indicated that I could get a loan. Then speaking with the expert broker was told I could not get a loan. I had done the sums myself and could easliy service the amount I needed but because I was over 55, did not have a huge deposit and the shorter loan term thay give to older people was refused service. I then went with a specialist broker who had a 30 year loan sorted in days. Guess Lendi only want business from people who are easy and not prepared to go the extra mile.
Never ending phone calls
These guys are relentless. I just wanted to have a quick look online to compare some home loan options, I specifically asked for no phone calls. I then got a phone call at least once a day for the next 3 weeks. I asked to please be taken off their call list and the guy on the phone would not listen. He continuously tried to keep me on the phone to the point that I had to hang up.
Expect to be receive unsolicited calls if you compare with Lendi
After comparing online, I've received several call attempts from Lendi. They utilise the required mobile number you provide to verify the comparison request without mentioning that they will then try to call you. While I'm sure it's burried in the copious terms and conditions somewhere, calls remains unsolicited and unwelcome.
Looking for alternative poor service
I have used Lendi previously and found them amazing. Using it to get an investment property found them horrible to deal with, documents requested repeatedly, documents not understood or read, had no idea of salary packaging. Told that I needed a quick settlement as there were specific conditions, did not understand contacts and commitments.
Told that it would take 4 days now on day 6 with still no results. Will be looking elsewhere in future.
Fyzee called me very shortly after lodging my online enquiry. And from that phone call onwards he worked persistently and patiently to help with my very complicated refinancing. My only complaint is with the web site form lodgement. At times it was quite difficult to work out what document to upload to which category.
Lendi so so bad, 0 stars
So So bad" we thought we would contact Lendi Pty Ltd to give them a go as we were wanting to purchasing a second investment property we did all that was required, and yet they did nothing! weeks past and we heard nothing, after a few weeks maybe months Lendi contacted us to ask us about our experience then apologized, we told them they "did nothing" so they put us at the top of the list, great, But they still did nothing!! we've never heard back from them, So in the end we went to ANZ out self and had our loan in 5 minutes, How easy it was.
Lendi you better get your bleeep together. Lendi even said they were going to use ANZ,
Thank you ANZ.
"Lendi we've never had such poor customer service EVER

Worst ever experience ! The most stressful process only because of a home loan specialist
Please dont go with Lendi if you are looking for a smooth and hazzle free home loan process.
Very poor communication and at the end, loan is not settled on time.
The so called home loan specialist [name removed] submitted the loan without listening to the customers needs and we had to direct him for every step.
Lendi will have good communication and assurance until they confirm the business, after that you call them 100 times, they won’t answer the call and reply to email, especially [name removed].
There are so many mortg...
I am extremely disappointed with the unprofessional service received from Relationship Manager at lendi.I will spare the name here.
It has ruined all our plans and I'm unsure as what will happen next. Being a first home buyer I feel I'm taken for a ride. I am clueless at this point.
We had our pre approval done without any issues. We finalised property and exchanged contracts.
Hearing about potscode restrictions in news, I specifically called lendi to check on post code restrictions with Bank Australia and received a confirmation from Relationship Manager that everything is perfect and it does not apply where I have bought property.
I fullfiled all the approval conditions-
Firstly, I start receiveing calls from too many different person.Then, they booked me for appointment at 9 am (which wasn't my prefer time)to provide some documents etc. I took a day off for this appointment. But lester Buch (agent) starts calling me 7:30 for telling that he is not coming..send documents via email.
Bye bye lendi..
I wanted to enquire for a loan, but got contacted by too many different staff members who are not informed about the already given details, so I went with a traditional bank.
I haven't submit the loan application, so I asked Lendi to delete all my collect datas. They only can do it AFTER 7 YEARS. Its the first time I hear about such a long time. Not happy about the whole experience at all. For me time waste.
Some good more poor service
Initial contact good. Had to resubmit paperwork too many times. Too many calls from various staff about same thing. Lack of communication within Lendi staff. Upon settlement didnt even get the loan setup as requested. 1 month on and still not setup correctly. Lendi blames bank and vice versa. Me the customer stuck in limbo.
Terrible Customer Service - SLOW SLOW SLOW!
Initial contact was very good and the process seemed to be quite easy however once the pre-approval application was submitted to the chosen bank it has been downhill since.
Had to resubmit the same information on 3 occasions.
Huge delay in responses to phone calls and emails. Last contact 3 weeks ago.
Was told the process of pre- approval takes 2-15 days; 6 weeks later we are still waiting and have no idea what is going on.
Your chosen bank don't communicate with you only refer you back to Lendi.
There was one afternoon when a broker rang my n...
Slow very slow
Great initial contact and fact finding by team.
However after three weeks I am still awaiting their preferred bank mortgage approval.
Have chased a number of time, re-loaded information, and no delays from my end in terms of uploading documents etc.
Its sad that they cant back up an initial excellent service.
In future I will go elsewhere and indeed might seek alternative funder pre-settlement.
I would recommend that unless you have plenty of time (three month settlement in mind), you shop for a broker elsewhere
Garbage and a complete waste of time!
Lendi promises the world and delivers NOTHING!
We wanted to complete a house build and as a self employed Builder with an incomplete build we knew that things might be difficult, although we only wanted to borrow a relatively small amount and consolidate another small loan.
Lendi assured us that they could accommodate this and were very positive.
This was where the joy ended.
Being dragged along with falsities for months, with ongoing paperwork submissions and vague communication, we finally had conditional approval, with the current works and...
WORST EXPERIENCE EVER
Lendi has been disappointing from day one. I submitted for loan approval after I have signed up the contract. The real estate has given us 3 weeks to get the approval. The next day I submitted all the required documents and from there on they only submitted loan to P&N Bank after a week. Then the wait started, until the last day of finance approval they did not contacted me regarding the finance process. Therefore I have to extend the finace approval date for another week, waited again no response, in the process false promises and keep asking ...me repeat documents come last day of finance, asked for another one week extention. By this time the seller was also getting worried and this lendi representative assured her that it will be approved that they are just taking time but promised that the application is solid and that it will be approved.Waited again.. and then after waiting 5 weeks, we got the answer that the loan is not servicable and the application has been declined. Very disappointing that after taking this long they came to the conclusion that this application is not succesful. In the process I have spent $550 on building and termite inspection. I reckon the Lendi broker was not qualified enough to access the aplication before handing over to the bank. In the end I asked him for decline letter from the bank to submit it to real estate agend to get my refund but that also I am not sure,if ia m going to get. Its been 3 days now but no response. Not happy with lendi and also with P&N Bank.
Big hassle, terrible after sales services and they don't check on unauthorised deductions made
My loans have been settled through Lendi weeks ago but there have been unauthorized charges not being picked up by the broker before the settlement. When I first ask about the charges, they asked me to wait for the bank final schedule of payment and don't bother to check if they were valid or not. Seems like they don't bother to check if the banks are making correct transactions before settlement. Out of the 2 loans, one had an unknown of 6k!+deduction and the other with 1.4k+. The 6k+ has been returned without any valid explanation only after...multiple email exchanges which I just let it go since now ihave gotten back my money But now they are simply not getting back to me on the 1.46k or at least explain to me on if it is a valid charge. Don't understand why they would take more than 2 weeks and still not figure out, and not retuning my money. Calls have been unanswered (calls went to voice mails ALL THE TIME or messages left on voice mails not answered). Emails responses have been tardy...and eventually if responded, only said they are investigating. Even before the settlement. I find that the amount of administrative work required doubles what I had to deal with when I were liaising directly with banks previously. If I decided to make changes due to change in market circumstances when the loans haven not been signed off, I was told that that I have to pay to make changes to the contracts that I did not have a chance to vet through before they submitted to the banks. I have previously refinanced with banks directly and find the whole process so much less hassle and much more responsive. Lendi did not put in the credit card application for me as part of the bank package and now told me that I have to cancel all my other credit cards before I can apply for one. I has asked them before how do we go about setting up the credit card before I cancel the others but you guess it, no response! What is the point of a broker if I have to handle everything myself? I can't follow up with the banks directly on the discrepancy now as the banks always referred me back to the broker. i now have to leave a (bad bad bad) review hoping for a final resolution. This experience left a very bad taste for me in terms of using brokers. Please don't go with one if you can as they only care about you getting loans through them, although their sales pitch is that they will look out for you even after this transaction. They followed up quite frequently with me when the loans were not being put through yet but now? I am out of pocket for no reason and they have decided that it is ok for me to be out of pocket for weeks when I could have put that sum to other use like getting new furniture or to offset my loans!

The worst customer experience!
Signed up with the company in 2019 - Jan called them multiple times and asked how my application was going. Was told some one will call me back. Finally received a call in August!
There was no communication on the settlement. I had requested for a specfic settlement date for my two properties and was assured that this was going to happen. Post settlement was not given those dates and was asked to deal with all the issues by myself.
One escalating the issue Manager calls to apologise but no further action is take!.
Questions & Answers
Hi Lendi Team,
I am writing on behalf of my husband. I feel so bad for him as he keeps calling our Agent but no response. We are waiting for Unconditional Approval from last week Thursday. Two days ago my husband was on a call with Agent regarding some query but after that no communication at all. Now Christmas holiday coming closer and closer we need some kind of Clarification otherwise we would withdraw the application. If someone can contact my husband. ASAP.

I was leaning towards Lendi for a homeloan after seeing the '1877' reviews with the highest stars than any of big 4 banks, just having a feeling that these may not be genuine.
