Brokerage Fee:______ % of the loan Gross Loan Amount*
Additional Trail:_______% per month*^
*Please note: Brokerage Fee & Trails are subject to approval by HomeSec. We advise that the Brokerage Fees and Trails are added to our standard Establishment Fee & Interest rate. This means the cost is passed onto the borrower. This may affect the competitiveness of the loan offer.
You agree to always quote your Broker fee and Trail to HomeSec on a “GST INCLUSIVE” basis.
You understand that any Brokerage Fee is only payable when the loan you have made to HomeSec as a Referral has been funded by HomeSec.
^Trails are not automatically applied to a loan. You need to specifically request a Trail on each loan Referral.
^Trails are paid when the loan Referral sent by you and funded by HomeSec is fully repaid, and has not gone into default. Should a client make monthly interest payments and the loan is not in default, your Trail will be paid to You monthly when the Borrower makes their Interest payment to HomeSec.
Repeat Loans or Further Advances.
If a loan Referral made by You has been funded by HomeSec and the same Borrower applies for addition funding to an existing HomeSec loan, or requests a subsequent advance after the previous HomeSec loan has been repaid, HomeSec will pay You the same Partner Broker Fee that was paid to You on the initial Referral. If a Trail was applied to the initial Referral, that same Trail will apply to additional or subsequent advances to the same Borrower.
A Broker Free, or Trail on Repeat Loans or Further Advances is only calculated on Fresh Capital. Fresh Capital is new or additional capital advances, and it is not calculated on capital already advanced.

delivering the Referral for the first 90 (ninety) calendar days from the relevant Referral
(regardless of loan product);
c. Direct then Partner: Referrals that are referred by a Partner (regardless of product)
that have previously come through Direct, will be allocated to that referring Partner (in
accordance with the above rules).

can continue to conduct their own lead nurturing activities.

(without any other indication) it will only result in a change in Partner for that customer if
that Referral settles.

associated with a different Partner and/or disassociated from an existing Partner which
will result in an ongoing change. It is ultimately the Borrowers discretion and HomeSec will
act in accordance with Borrowers choice. HomeSec is under no obligation to notify any
Partner if an existing customer has changed their preference.

i. Notwithstanding any other rule in this Referral Management Policy, an existing Borrower
(including a Referral) can move from one Partner to another if and when they chose to do so.
