It took more than 1 year to do a refinance loan
It took more than a year to refinance a loan missing a better rate as it went up. Also promised calls and then never call. I got the loan in the end but with 1.7% more than when I started the application.
Unreliable and waste of time
I used Lendi twice, once as a first home buyer and then for refinance. In both instances I got wrong products recommended and the process was so slow that I had to get loan arranged from somewhere else.
During refinance I was suggested HSBC. I patiently waited for 4 months but got an abysmal 3.37% fixed rate offer blaming the bank. I would recommend Lendi to those who want to waste their time.
Could get organised before cooling off period.
Kept getting told I would have no issues getting a loan. Made an offer on a property. No response - kept following up. I asked my broker will this be done on time or should I go to my bank because I was not getting a response or any timeframes. On the last day of my cooling off period they said sorry you need a higher deposit. I wouldn't use them ever again. I went straight to a bank and they approved it within an hour. Doesn't take away the fact that a few hours until my cooling off period ended was made super stressful because of this company.
Absolute waste of time!
Extremely disappointed with the service and outcome I received after being promised to be refinanced with HSBC. Lendi had me believe everything looked great and was going to take a couple of weeks to get approved. 2 months later after going through the whole process I get turned down because I’m self employed and run a business. Don’t bother wasting your time! Refinance with someone else as I found a much better company that’s already getting me approved and refinanced.
Very disappointed with Lendi settlement team
The broker i delt with to start the process Eric was fantastic but it went down hill from there , i was sent 2 incorrect bank contracts the settlement member Roneel was very hard to get onto he only returned my call after an email outlining my intentions to contact the ombudsman I was given 6 different settlement dates with a lack of explanation why ? that is totally unacceptable and poor business practise we have excellent credit history which was a straight forward application but clearly for a business that is in this line of work on a daily basis cant even get the simple refinance contract settled in a timely manner this is a real concern .I definitely will not be recommending Lendi to family or friends .
These guys are unprofessional, inefficient, incapable, cost me 4k in penalty due to their slow processing time
It was my biggest mistake trusting an online broker. Everything seems fine at first and turns super slow after I put in my deposit with my purchase.
I was contacted by [Name Removed] on 30th June 2021, he was "confident" as assured me that it would be easy to get the loan through him and the bank he chose AMP (which was just as incapable)
The very first mistake was getting my name wrong, which caused a huge amount of time proofing my name.
There was so much time wasted asking over useless information, questions and even wanted me to create a s...
Wrong information. Poor communication. Disappointing experience
Similar to most others, we started off with our broker smoothly with easy communication. Problems started after all our documentations were submitted and contract signed. We were constantly having to push for updates as we heard nothing from Lendi while trying to arrange the settlement date. The team constantly put the blame on the bank for stalling. It got to a point where our solicitor had to get involved in pushing our broker to take actions. Luckily we had an amazing solicitor who pointed out some serious mistakes including our application...has been suspended (which our broker and settlement team person did not notice), telling us it's ready for all the parties to book for settlement (which pointed out by our solicitor saying it wasn't). Our solicitor was also the one who reminded us to have money in the account by a particular date (where the Lendi team went MIA). We would probably had missed out the house we love, or had to pay fine for all the postponing and rescheduling if we just relied on the Lendi team to 'help us'. Lendi also has so many different teams for different processes, which made the whole process complex, communication difficult, and the processing time longer. I am sure there are great brokers in Lendi and we just landed on one that wasn't very responsible, or wasn't on top of things. However, I will not recommend this service to anyone based on this experience.
Started out well, contacting me and keeping me up to date but have completely fallen off the wagon now
Started out well. Communication was good. Now I am having to call them every second day with requests to get back to me about where the loan is at and still no calls or emails. I was starting to wonder if I had been scammed.
What a joke this company is
Had a dispute about 6 weeks ago and manager called and we sorted it out ..told everything will be fixed in 21 days..so I proceeded no further as took their word again.. !! What a mistake that was 27 days and still waiting ..should have kept to my guns and principal instead of being understanding..no car taken here..very..very poor
Absolute nightmare. Go straight to the bank and forget lendi.
Started the process of refinancing my home loan and investment loan April 2 2021. July 16 still not finalised. At least 20 calls and lost count of the Amount of emails. Dealt with 3 different brokers so far. Miss a call from lendi and ring back within 5 minutes and not get a response until the next day.
Make an appointment to sign documents at bank and Lendi have only sent half of what is required. Now have Lendi and Westpac telling me it is each other's fault that the documents aren't there.
If I was to go straight to the bank it would have b...
Took over 3 months to settle. Most frustrating process I have ever been through. Never again. Next time I will go straight to the Lender and not use this Company.
After being told my first contract interest rate expired before they could get the contract. 2nd one received and made appointment with the bank for id and loan check only to be told that it was the incorrect contract again. Are these guys really MORTGAGE BROKERS???
My last review saw me getting one call to resolve the issue which I was unable to take as I was working. No follow-up call made to me. Is this how you provide customer service....I think not. Not impressed with any practices of Lendi and their professional way of wasting peoples time ongoing. My rating to date has fallen from 1 star to - 5 for their effort - NOT.
Do not waste your time
Do not waste your time. Absolute joke. No one ever knows what is going on, they keep emailing me asking me for documents that I have already sent them.
They take days and sometimes over a week to respond to emails.
I have owned 3 houses and refinanced 4 times and I have never experienced such incompetence.
I applied for refinancing last November, I am still waiting for it to be finalised (April 2021)
I would have pulled the pin, but they keep telling me it's all good and will be finalised by the end of the week.
Avoid, if time is of any importance to you. It took Lendi 3-4 WEEKS to submit a simple application which had everything ticked from the word go.
Skills to rope in new customers once they have you the phone are top notch but once you are caught in their net, no option but to suffer the delays.
Very hard to talk to, Home Loan specialist will never respond to messages left on their site and will not provide a direct number to contact unless you complaint.
Ideally an online broker should not require any human intervention, however dealing with Len...
Waste of time fir my family
Won’t lendi to my post code - discrimination. I can’t believe that the advertising campaign is not what the product is. The excuses were vast and varied. Satisfaction zero. Waste of time.
