This credit guide outlines the responsible lending obligations, obligations to provide an assessment and the dispute resolution procedures of Jacaranda Finance Pty Ltd t/a (‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’)(ABN 53 162 078 195, Australian Credit Licence 456 404). It is a requirement under the NCCP Act to provide this document to you as soon as it becomes apparent that you are likely to enter into a credit contract with us.
Our Responsible Lending Obligations
As a part of our responsible lending obligations, we are required to not enter into a credit contract with you if the contract will be unsuitable. A contract will be deemed unsuitable if:
- it is likely that you will be unable to comply with the financial obligations under the contract or you could only comply with the financial obligations under the contract with substantial hardship; or
- the contract does not meet your requirements or objectives.
In determining whether a contract will be deemed unsuitable, we will:
- make reasonable inquiries about your requirements and objectives for the applied credit; and
- make reasonable inquiries about your financial situation; and
- take reasonable steps to verify that financial situation.
If you are applying for a loan for less than $2,000, we must obtain and consider your account statements that cover at least the immediately preceding period of 90 days.
Providing a Copy of Assessment
If you request a copy of our Assessment of Unsuitability for your credit contract:
- before entering the credit contract, we must give you a written copy of the assessment before entering the contract.
- within two years from the credit day, we must give you a written copy of the
- Assessment in writing within 7 business days of your request.
- after two years from the credit date but within 7 years, we must give you a written copy of the assessment in writing within 21 business days.
