About Us

Own it. Two simple words but when put together, become a powerful mantra in life and in business. Ralph Waldo Emerson, one of the arguably most influential writers of our time, used this idea of 'owning it' to get people to examine and imagine what it means to be successful to reach personal goals and achievements through authenticity and personal integrity. We at Own It Mortgages couldn't agree with this sentiment more. Do you Own It? Do you want to Own It? If your answer is 'Yes', we can help.

By Owning It, you challenge yourself -you know what you bring to the table your unique skills, talents and ideas. And let's not forget: your dream. Through your own set of desires, passions and set intentions, you can own it, whether it's a new home, a build, a refinance, an investment or another goal that sparks your pride and inspiration.

Own It Mortgages strives to put our best foot forward and help you achieve owning it whatever that means to you. Our model is simple-we want to help people become financially informed, make the best decisions for themselves and guide them through the process to a successful future of ownership.  Our main objective is to blaze the trail for our clients in all facets up the mortgage ladder until the final goal is reached or owned! And your dream is finally realised, with us standing by your side every step of the way.  We fight for you the buyer, to ensure your needs are met with a full plethora of support and professionalism behind you. We at Own It Mortgages wouldn't have it any other way, and neither should you.

No fees, expenses or other amounts payable for our financial advice

We do not charge any fees, expenses or any other amounts for financial advice given to you. 

Most of the time, our services are completely free. That is because instead of being paid by you, we receive revenue from our product suppliers like banks and insurers.

We feel it's important you understand how we are paid, after all we ask the exact questions to you when applying for a home loan.

Circumstances where fees may be charged:

  • Speciality Residential Home Loan purchase - Either the result of credit impairment like defaults or the loan is complex by nature. We will inform of you when this is the case.
  • Fees for lending examples outlined below are charged at 1% of the loan amount.

 

How we are renumerated

For life and health insurance, Ownit Mortgages Limited and the financial adviser receive commissions from the insurance companies on whose policies we give advice. If you decide to take out insurance, the insurer will pay a commission to Ownit Mortgages Limited and your financial adviser. The amount of the commission is based on the amount of the premium.

For Mortgages, Ownit Mortgages Limited and the financial adviser receive commission from the banks or lenders with whom we arrange the mortgage. If you decide to take out a mortgage, the bank or lender will pay a commission to your financial adviser. The amount of the commission is based on the amount of the mortgage. 

 

How we manage any conflicts of interest or other incentives

To ensure that our financial advisers prioritise the client's interest above their own, we follow an advice process that ensures our recommendations are made on the basis of the client's goals and circumstances.

All our financial advisers undergo annual training about how to manage conflicts of interest.
