The platform helping empower the ‘bank of mum and dad’ – MortgageBusiness.com.au

MortgageBusiness

Tim Dean talked with Annie Kane from MortgageBusiness.com.au earlier this year and discussed Credi’s potential to help struggling millennials who turn to their parents for a loan to buy their first property.

The online platform for managing loan agreements between family, friends, and colleagues has seen great success since their launch in April. Credi has grown exponentially in the Australian market and as of this month has reached $31 million dollars of loans on the platform. Tim Dean further mentions how the platform was created after he

CEO Tim Dean further mentions how the platform was created after he experienced the strain of not being repaid and having to constantly chase up family and friends. As such, Credi aims to formalise and manage lending between family and friends by providing loan documentation, negotiation of an agreement, repayment reminders and ongoing loan management.

Dean also highlighted that 1/3 of the loans on the platform are property related, whether it be for a deposit or for a house purchase.

Tim Dean further goes on the discuss the gap between homeowner equity owners and millennials, and how more and more millennials are having to turn to family for financial help. He further mentions how many millennials prefer not to turn to banks due to the high-cost credit and higher interest rates. That’s when young adults look to their family for help, specifically ‘the bank of mum and dad’.

Mr Dean added: “But the problem some parents have is lending their money to their children without guarantees. They might be concerned that their child hasn’t got a job, or they want to protect their wealth for estate planning, or concerned that they might never get that money back for when they need it later in life. That is where we aim to help.”

New Zealand Herald digs deep to find out about the new Fintech in town

New Zealand Herald - CREDI The loan agreement platform

Credi.com, last month, announced the launch of its platform in New Zealand. Now with only a week to go, the New Zealand Herald has dug deep to find out what to expect from Credi’s fintech platform.

The main question on their mind was ‘the level of protection for users’. But CEO Tim Dean reassured them that the loan agreements were legally binding.

Dean states that “People are lending millions of dollars to friends and family, not because they want to make money out of them, but because they want to help them out and they just want to have a structure that means they don’t have to talk about it, and if there’s ever a problem ‘this is what we said, there’s no dispute’.”

Credi was live on Channel 9 News last Thursday and Friday. Nathan Brooks reports on how many adult children are turning to their parents when buying their first home. Resulting in the so-called ‘bank of mum and dad’ becoming the fifth biggest lender in Australia.

CEO, Tim Dean, created the platform to help family and friends formalise and manage loans. 9 News reported that 50% of informal loans between family and friends aren’t documented, as a result arguments often arise and relationships can be damaged. Tim Dean, having countlessly lent to his adult children and colleagues over the years realised how important a platform like Credi was to help protect relationships and safeguard trust.

3 Easy Steps to Lend Money the Smart Way

lend money

Credit.com highlights 3 easy steps to help you lend money safely to your family and friends.

If a friend or family member is ever in need most of us are more than happy to lend a helping hand even if it involves financial support. However, for those friends or family members that can’t get a personal loan from a commercial lender, most likely due to damaged credit or no credit, proves to be a risk for you, as the lender. So if you do choose to lend to them it’s always a good idea to protect yourself and your relationship, because we all know that sometimes things turn sour.

Lend the Smart Way

Credit.com highlights 3 steps, the first being:

  1. Set a Fair Interest Rate

Setting an interest rate, one that is competitive with one from a commercial lender can work in both yours and the borrower’s favour. An interest rate provides you with interest similar to what you may get if you were to put it into a savings account. It also offers you security, for if the borrower agrees to pay the interest this may prove they genuinely need the money.

  1. Get Your Agreement in Writing

When lending to family and friends credit.com always recommends writing out your agreement. If you’re uncomfortable with this be assured you’ll be even more uncomfortable with having to remind them and even of chase up the repayments. Again if they’re in serious need of financial support writing down some details and signing a document will prove they’re genuine about the loan. Be sure to spell out the terms, such as how much is borrowed, the time period, interest rate and repayment details.

Be sure to check out Credi.com who will help organise all these details for you and create a loan agreement as well. Plus you’ll be able to manage it on the platform once it’s agreed to and eSigned.

 

  1. Set up a Formal Payment Arrangement

Let’s face it, it’ll be easier for the borrower to make a late payment or even miss a payment to you than to a commercial lender. Be sure to include details of payments due dates, fees and how payments will be made (bank transfer, cash etc.). With Credi, you will be notified of upcoming repayments and the borrower will also receive reminders of late payments. The platform also allows you to label each repayment as cleared, forgiven, overdue or paid. This helps both parties track repayments, in turn helping to prevent disagreements on the when payments were made and the remaining amount owed.

Lending money to friends and family members who can’t get a loan from a traditional lender always has its risks. However, if the right precautions and steps are taken you can avoid hurting feelings and ruining relationships. Always be clear when writing up the agreement and voice your expectations.

Be sure to open your free account with Credi and create your loan made with family or friends. Our platform will take away the stress and worry of lending informally. Credi helps structure a loan agreement, put it in writing, and manage & track the loan from start to finish.
