Good interest rate....painfully slow process
Customer service was mostly friendly and helpful
Costs were pretty much as expected
Rate is very good
Took around 3 months from my first application to final discharge of two loans I consolidated into one loan which is very long I feel. I think I asked the staff around eight times that I wanted both of my mortgages discharged as part of the settlement process and still ended up having to do it myself which was both annoying and confusing.
If your happy to wait through a long process the rate is worth it. Mine was not so urgent so ok in the end.

Questions & Answers
Some months ago, after many many hours of research and reading reviews etc, we took the first step of application with you, spoke to a representative over the phone, but needed to wait for more stability (one of us was part-time, but now full-time) before completing the online interview. We are a married couple 52yrs and 31yrs of age, full time employees with a solid savings track record. We want a short term loan for 14yrs (before retirement age of the elder) with options of additional payments. We have approximately 40-50% deposit for a first home up to $500k (maybe more on both counts, this is conservative). Our credit ratings are spotless. The quicker it's paid off the better for us, we just need future home security. Our main concerns are the shortness of the term of the loan and its small total amount (comparatively), age of the elder lender and loan non-approval affecting credit ratings. We saw the one star review from shaun from 3 months ago: 'Avoid Avoid, Unethical and Dishonest' and found ourselves shocked and disheartened to read it, they seemed like a sure thing and honestly it give us cold feet. In juxtaposition, reading your reply whereby you actually took responsibility for the problem and apologized is a very rare thing and shows how much you do care. A very honorable and desirable quality, if true. Still, it's a scary thing for us and we need some reassurance before we proceed. This is of vital importance to our lives and future.
To go through a broker would reduce our risk, but probably cost us more. To proceed with Well Home Loans would reduce our costs, but seems more risky. Importantly though, we are likely dealing with people who actually care with Well Home Loans. Can you please address our main concerns and also give considered responses to the body of this converse. Kind regards.
Thanks for your question, it’s always great to see potential homeowners do their research, we’re great advocates for financial literacy and can’t stress how important it is for people to research!
Hi there, we are looking to refinance our loan and switch to an equity loan. Our LVR is around 60-65%. We also want to add a $40k home Improvement, so we have these funds after the refinance available to us. We are with one the Big 4 on a P&I loan, and have never missed a repayment in 16 years. We tried to get a better deal and while the did come down more than we expected, it is nowhere near you guys.. Before we drop you guys a line, does all this sound doable? TY, Craig
Thanks for asking about your situation and glad to hear that our home loans can still beat the banks best offer! The info that you've provided certainly seems like we can help however, l...ike any question, it all depends on the details. We don't do full construction loans (yet!) though we've certainly been able to provide funds for home renovations (non structural renos). It will also depend on what your definition of an "equity loan" is - some people refer to this as meaning a line of credit (which we don't do) though others have just wanted to unlock equity in the home to take some cash out and put it towards another purpose which we can do. Having such a a low LVR is also great! While on the surface it would seem that we can help, we'd definitely recommend talking to the team and they can go through your individual situation on the phone in more detail to make absolutely sure that we can help. As part of our service, you can use this link to book a time to chat with the team directly - https://wellmoney.link/book-pr
Do you lend to people on a disability pension with a very good LVR (Roughly 50%, so zero risk) and a current mortgage with proven AAA Credit history and zero missed payments? (I am 40 years of age only)
We are able to lend to people who have different sources of income and a disability pension can be an acceptable source of income for our loan. Having said that, there are some pol...icy rules that we have around this topic and as each persons situation is unique, it's best to have a chat with our home loan experts to make sure that we are able to help with your situation.
