              • Aww, my first fight.

                Check out "New Zealand Property Investor" Issue 96, November 2011, Page 25 to 29.

                    Actually, as Equilibrium has declared his affiliation, perhaps
                    he can explain the papers-in-envelopes of business banking?

                    Page one says: "This is a transaction listing." Maybe so, but
                    the page is devoid of any data.

                    At the bottom, it does say Page 1 of 3 (please turn over)

                    On the reverse of the page is where the transaction listing
                    actually starts. At the bottom is Page 2 of 3.

                    The transaction listing then continues on page 3.

                    At the bottom of page 3 is Page 3 of 3 (Please turn over)

                    Doh? Page 3 of 3, OK? There is nothing on the reverse to
                    turn over to.

                    Of the transaction listings detailed, about 65% are repeats.
                    I.e. they were on the previously received statement!

                    I can see that statements do differ from transaction listings.

                    Now I know NZ Post is struggling with declining snail mail
                    volumes and revenue, but that seems taking things too far.

                    Why am I being sent so much redundant information? I do
                    want to receive statements (accountants like them), but
                    each transaction only needs to be listed once. Really.

                      My broker was one of an elite group that had access to them as part of some trial scheme, so no, are definitely talking about Kiwibank, you think I would get confused, and post without knowing what I was talking about.
                      Moved from them, as the time to get a response was pathetic, you couldnt run a business with a bank like that.
                      But hey maybe the equilibrum has changed and they have got better, are you their Marketing Manager ??

                      • I just saw an ad on Stuff with TSB, 2 years fixed at 5.3%. 80% lending though, so have your deposit at the ready, and there's an owner/ occupier caveat in there too.

                          Variable 5.00% p.a.
                          6 months fixed 5.15% p.a.
                          1 year fixed 4.75% p.a.
                          2 years fixed 4.99% p.a.
                          3 years fixed 5.40% p.a.
                          4 years fixed 5.75% p.a.
                          5 years fixed 6.20% p.a.
                          I note that the standard floating rate at 5.74
                          You have been given a .74% reduction off the published rate, that is quite significant.
                          Did they say you will stay .74% below the published rate when it goes up or down.

                          If a customer moved to a bank on the basis of a promised floating rate.
                          Do they "Promise" to stay at that level of discount to the floating rate when it goes up and down.

                          What sort of floating rate do people think you could do at a higher LVR.
                          I am at 90%, but just to have a big fat R/C sitting there that can be used at will.

                          The premium on rates from 80% to 90% LVR is about .3% or .4%

                          • Good point on the margin. There is no promise to keep the premium if rates move so that is now going to be my first phone call on Monday. I did think about it at the time and then promptly forgot.

                            It used to be that the size of the loan dictated the discount and the LVR wasn't such a big deal as you were generally paying a low equity fee. Not sure how that works now.

                              Hi Perry, I've checked in with our local business banking centre, they're unaware of the issue described. Is it still occrring, if so I would recommend speaking directly to your local business manager as it appears to be an isolated incident if not one off. Hope this helps. Cheers, Equilibrium

                                Imagine you're talking about the Loan Market brokers, we do deal with a hand full of these brokers but it's not really something promoted. Generally if you're a strong applicant and provide everything we need then there will not be a problem. Marginal applications or missing information or showing discrepancies do tend to take longer to work through. BNZ is probably the only bank I'm aware of that specialise in investor loans and are generous with their lending approvals, it seems to work well from what I hear, their pricing may not be the sharpest however. Each bank has their own strengths. I'm a lender, nothing more.
