Contract Terms & Conditions


1. Making the Loan

1.1 By signing this Loan Agreement, you agree to borrow the amount of credit, including any Redraw Credit provided under clause 12, on the terms specified in this document. This Loan Agreement becomes binding on you when you sign, irrespective of any payment of money or delivery of goods.

1.2 We reserve the right to withdraw from this transaction if you do not comply with any of the conditions of our offer. We also reserve the right to withdraw this offer if it is not accepted within14 days from the Disclosure Date, if the initial drawdown does not occur within 20 days of the Disclosure Date, or if anything occurs which in our reasonable opinion makes settlement undesirable.

2. Repayments

2.1 You must make all payments on the due date. In addition to making any repayments specified in the Schedule, on expiry of the Loan Term, you must pay to us the total amount you owe us. The
expiry of the Loan Term is the last day of the Loan Term set out in the Schedule, or such other date which we agree with you. The ‘total amount you owe us’ means, the total amount outstanding from time to time and includes all interest, fees and charges including any fees or
other amounts which become due on final repayment.

2.2 Repayments are to be made as directed by us. You must sign any forms required by us to effect repayments. Repayments must be made in full, and, if we have assigned our rights under this agreement for the purposes of our funding arrangements, including in relation to a securitisation, without any deduction or set-off for any amount we owe you.

2.3 If any repayment is due to be made on a day which is not a business day, the repayment must be made on the next business day. If any repayment is due on a date which does not exist (for
example 31 June) the repayment is due on the last day of the month.

2.4 If you use direct debit to make payments under your Loan Agreement, you must not cancel the direct debit authorisation or close the account without making alternate arrangements.

If any direct debit or cheque used for repayment is dishonoured, the repayment will be treated as not having been made, and interest will continue to accrue on the unpaid daily balance until actual payment is received by us.

2.5 We can apply any payment to any amount you owe us in any order we reasonably determine.

2.6 If you have more than one account with us and you make a payment without telling us in writing how the payment is to be applied, we can apply it to any one or more of the accounts as we reasonably decide.

2.7 We will not pay interest on any credit balance in your account.

2.8 You may repay early the whole or any part of the AMOUNT OWING at any time.

3. Interest charges

3.1 Interest on your loan accrues daily, starting on the Settlement Date based on the outstanding debit balance of your loan. The interest rate applied each day is equal to the annual percentage rate applicable to the loan at the time divided by 365.

3.2 Interest will be debited monthly in arrears on the same day each month as the Settlement Date. If any day on which interest is due to be debited is not a business day, that interest will be debited on the next business day. If any interest is to be debited on a day which is the 29th, 30th or 31st of a month with no such date, the debit will be made on the last day of the month.

3.3 Interest debited to your loan will be added to the outstanding balance of your loan and accrue
interest at the same rate and in the same manner as the principal of your loan.

3.4 In addition to debiting interest to your account monthly, we may debit interest whenever the loan is in default, there is any repayment of the loan, there is any principal increase or variation in your Loan Agreement, or there is any change to the loan terms.

4. Fees and charges

4.1 You must pay any fees and charges which become payable under the Loan Agreement.

4.2 If the fee or charge is payable to us, you authorise us to debit your loan for the relevant amount.

4.3 If the fee or charge is for someone else (eg an insurer), you authorise us to debit your loan with that amount and pay it to the relevant third party.

5. Mortgage Terms

Secured Property

5.1 You hereby charge the Secured Property to us way of mortgage, and grant to us a security interest over the Secured Property and any insurance policy with respect to the Secured Property (including any money received from a warranty claim, or any insurance claim over the Secured Property, or received from an insurer following a cancellation of a policy) to secure payment to us of the total amount you owe to us, and any other money now or at any time in the future due to us under this Loan Agreement. The Secured Property includes any repairs, replacement parts, additions, or alterations made to the Secured Property, and any money or replacement vehicles received from any insurance claim or warranty policy in respect of the Secured Property.
