Lending Do they know what they are doing.
Starting dealing with Lending early in Feb 2021. Told it would not take long and they would keep me informed. Now in May and lender has change interest rate and term so it all starts again. Nothing positive about my experience with Lending. I would source a different mortgage broker and do not recommend them to friends.
My rating is 1 out of 10 for service and timeliness
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.
Lack of customer service
I was told about 20 days to here if loan excepted 2 months many phones calls and emails later still no reply if I could give a zero I would
Information provided was consistently incorrect and misleading causing us to almost lose the house we purchased.
Unfortunately, I had no end of issues with Lendi throughout my loan application process. I had to consistently follow up to ensure items were completed. Lendi provided false and misleading information on numerous occasions, including from both the brokers manager and also the senior sales manager.
I only decided to go with a broker as I am extremely time poor due to work and family commitments.
I am extremely fortunate to work in lending and have an understanding of the loan process. If I did not have this experience, I would have lost the ...house I had purchased due to Lendi. Lendi continuously refused to escalate our loan application even though it was a purchase settlement and I submitted our application before making an offer on a house, on top of this, I also allowed an extended 21 days for finance giving a total of over 25 days to organise finance. Lendi never took any responsibility for their shortcomings and continuously blamed the lender. After extensive discussions with the head of credit for the lender, they advised that all the information I had been provided by Lendi had been incorrect. Further to this, the senior sales manager, [Name Removed] really needs to take some courses in how to speak with customers, he was extremely arrogant and had absolutely no empathy for our situation.
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
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.
Failed on every front.
My dealings with Lendi have left a lot to be desired to the point I am reluctant to bother with brokers in future... I applied to refinance my investment property, to find myself constantly chasing and following up the broker, who always seemed to be on a flight, in hospital or other wise occupied.. this went on for 2 months and in the end I simply stopped following up; I have not heard back from that broker since. I then called head office to seek assistance from someone else, only to never get a phone call back... Lendi is one of the worst organisations I have had to deal with, they seem to have no concept of customer service or common courtesy.
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.
Are you aware of any fake or paid reviews ?
Hey there, thank you for your question. I want to clarify that we are not ourselves a Lender. We work alongside over 35 lenders within the market and have helped thousands of Australians on their home loans. We pride ourself on providing exceptional customer service, hence some of our glowing reviews on Product Review. We do not pay for our reviews nor are our reviews fake. If you would like to know what the hype is about and understand how we can help you, feel free to send us a private message and we would be more than happy to see how we can help.
You should look at "Verified Customer" only. I am a "verified customer" and actually not happy with this company.
Better to use a local agent !
