If you experience repayment difficulties in relation to a specific lending product, you will be charged surcharge interest on any repayments missed and the security taken for either a personal or business lending product may be used to reduce your overall indebtedness. In addition, you will remain liable for any outstanding debt, including any accrued interest, surcharge interest, fees, charges, legal, enforcement and other related costs. Subject to applicable terms and conditions, we may offset the total arrears outstanding against monies held on account. In certain circumstances where you have missed repayments, we may employ an external debt collection agent or other third party to act on our behalf.
