State Custodians is our preferred Lender
We approached State Custodians for a top up of our existing mortgage. Leo was fantastic, helping us navigate the paperwork and answering all our questions as we moved through the process. His attention to detail and professionalism was exceptional. Totally satisfied with all aspects of our loan.
Great customer service
From application to end, Leo was easy to communicate with and very helpful with advice. What a great service and thanks to Leo am a very happy customer! A fast and professional service.
Great service, excellent result!
Our State Custodian loan application process was handled professionally and timely by our Lending Specialist, Leo. Communication was detailed and accurate with the whole application process taking less than three weeks. Considering the work load of SC and the complexity of our loan, we are extremely happy with their service. We highly recommend State Custodians. Tip: Be patient and have all your documents ready - don't expect a loan to be approved in less than a week - there are rigid checks and balances that must be adhered to.
Thanks again SC and Leo!
Waste of time
After applying online, then being lead through the application process, I was made to wait over 4 weeks without any advice on the progress of my application? After eventually calling numerous times and emailing, I received a return email from my so called "loan application manager" advising me that she just noticed there were two key elements missing from my application, and could I send them through and she will forward my application for appraisal! Ofcourse I immediately responded with my feedback, also letting her know that I won't be persui...ng my application any further, to which she replied; yes I sincerely apologize that it was entirely my fault that your application has not been completed and forwarded before now" Great, thanks for wasting hours of my time that has amounted to zero!!
Please think twice if you want to sign up your loan with SC.
I realised there were reoccurring unauthorised transactions from my offset account. They admitted that it was their mistake but nothing was done. I have been waiting for them to refund my money for over 2 months, despite lots of follow up emails and phone calls. Complete waste of time.
They never call when they say they will
Terrible customer service, I had to chase them up to process my loan even though they got all needed documents they requested. Called more than 4 times to find out what's happening, everytime I get promised to receive a call back but I never did. I ended up emailing them to cancel my application and I will be going with another lender, yet didn't even reply this email which was a week ago.
Professional/ prompt service. Thanks.
After having a disappointing (unsuccessful) experience with my local Mortgage Broker I cautiously (I’m a boomer who prefers face to face communication) commenced an online home loan refinance application with State Custodians.
After commencing the online application process I was impressed when I promptly received a phone call (email acknowledgement already received) to discuss my application. Throughout the process I was guided by emails, some after hours & phone calls during working hours. Excellent client relations, thanks Leonardo G.
p.s. the loan / refinance process was prompt & should be completed within the next 10 days.
Happy customer. Thanks all.

Good rates and seemless process
I approached SC for a new investment loan. My Lending Specialist is Leonardo. The rates were good and process was relatively straight forward and fewer bureaucracy compared to a bank. I commend Leo for providing robust update on the progress. When needed he escalated matters and resolved to my satisfaction. He has been very helpful.
Poor performance on every level
I was given a minefield of hoops to go through, delays and excessive red tape to get through which ultimately discourages any success in reducing my interest rate. Very dissatisfied with service on all levels.
Helpful staff. Easy and straightforward process. Right rate. No complaints here.happy to recommend Justin. Whole process took only few weeks from start to finish with everything explained well and in a timely fashion. Cheers
Exceptional service by Charlotte and the State Custodians team
Refinancing process was made so simple and not at all difficult.
Great communication by Charlotte our lending specialist and we were kept updated throughout the entire process. Highly reccomend them to anybody thinking about refinanacing.
Fantastic Service from Leo
I had a split loan with one of the big 4 banks and was looking to refinance it all into one. Leo was very knowledgeable and was able to explain how to get it all done. He has excellent customer service skills and responded to my queries in a timely manner
Excellent customer service From Justin
I applied to refinance my investment loans with State Custodian online, Justin from State Custodians contacted me. I have several loans to refinance, there are a lot of documents to process. Justin guided and helped me go through the whole process smoothly from the application to the formal approval.
Thank you very much Justin.
I am very happy with the loans and services provided by State Custodians.

The BEST Customer Service!
The entire experience is quite daunting for a first home buyer however I cannot fault the support and assistance received from our lending specialist, Charlotte, from the initial enquiry right through to the settlement. She was understanding and empathetic to our fears and concerns. She provided us with the best advice and support we could ever have hoped for. We were guided through each step with the utmost professional nature, and not once were we confronted with anything unexpected. She was patient with my frequent nervous questions, and con...tinued to reassure me at every step! The entire process was so simple! The interest rate was incredible, and very competitive, and for our situation the rate was 1.6% lower then the next financial institution willing to consider our application. State Custodians helped us realise our dream and we are forever grateful. Highly recommended!
Excellent customer service and guidance during my loan process!
My first encounter with State Custodians was a simple enquiry on how to refinance and what products they have to offer. I was guided by Charlotte Morgan through the enquiry. Charlotte was very patient, professional, and did not push me to sign up for a loan. A few days after considering their products, and comparing it with others - I knew that I wanted to speak to Charlotte again and have her guide me through the whole process! Every time I had a small question, clarification, or anything that was worrying me during the process, Charlotte was ...a breath of fresh air and gave me a sense of security and calm. I even called through the general number and asked for her directly - the team was more than happy to assist me, transfer me through or get Charlotte to give me a callback. Overall it was a very pleasant experience, very professional, and very patient throughout the process. I'm very thankful for the world-class service and to Charlotte for being my guiding light in the whole process!
Good company to deal with and great rates
I engaged State Custodians to refinance my existing mortgage. The existing interest only mortgage was reaching the end of its 5 year term and was no longer at a competitive rate. I was attracted to State Custodians on the rates offered and reputation. I consider mortgage finance to be a commodity product. In order to offer such good rates and keep their cost low an organisation such as State Custodians will not dazzle you with service and rapid turn around on execution. Pre-approval was quick and, as it turns out, accurate and honoured through provision of subsequent finance.
Progress on the execution was predictable and the staff at State Custodians courteous and helpful.
Very happy with the experience.
Excellent example of a customer service lender
I had a very good experience dealing with State Custodians. Their rates were 0.5% less than the nearest lender in my situation. I worked with Justin and he continually kept me updated throughout the process and was very professional even when there were some hurdles to overcome. I would definitely recommend
Cheap rates, helpful staff
State Custodians offered competitive rates and the application process was pretty simple and they didn't demand intrusive levels of paperwork (some lending institutions want details of all your bank accounts).
Staff, especially Leo, were very helpful and patient at addressing my many queries as it was my first mortgage.
Great deal and easy application
I was astonished about the very competitive rates provided by State Custodians! They've pretty much smashed the competition and secured my family a great deal saving us almost a decade of interests!
The application was super smoth and the staff super helpfull always keen to help and clarify the minimum details giving me confidence to work with them.
Questions & Answers
What is the discharge cost if leaving/distachargin a state custodians variable rate home loan of $250,000 please?
Has anyone had their interest rate increased above what they are offering new client. Eg Mortgage rate now is 2.58%
Anyone paying more than this rate.
let me know
Hi John I would urge you to read my last review about this company. They have admitted that they made an error in reversing a payment my ex partner made and put my mortgage in arrears to the tune of $19,700.00 plus Without notifying myself as the primary borrower. The matter has been with A.F.C.A for over 6 months and both State Custodians and A.F.C.A have delayed, evaded etc etc. If you don't have a loan with them Make Absolutely no mistake. STAY WELL CLEAR.. by the way State Custodians is a wholly owned subsidiary of Resimac. You need only look at the reviews people have posted about Resimac to see who you are/will be dealing with. Plus there are better rates available elsewhere. Hope that Helps. Cheers Paul
