    I regret to advise that the Classic product has unexpectedly been withdrawn effective immediately. I have managed to cancel the attached upfront val request.

    Thanks for sharing Rolf - can see why, they'd likely have seen a massive pick up in business in a very short time period.

    @Peter_Tersteeg does this derail the plan you are working on that was mentioned in previous posts?

    No. What I'm putting together is not reliant on any particular lender, but I am still working out which lenders will work with it.

    Anyone want to start work on a crowd-based peer-to-peer lending solution?

    There could potentially be enough funds and definitely wisdom on the forums to get something started.

    Brokers can still write the Classic product until COB 31st Aug. They have the Accelerate Prime product, for the deals which require generous serviceability but it does cost a bit more.

    They have released a new product today which is the Flexichoice funded by Resimac. That doesn't have the servicing like the other products but does have some strengths namely:

    1. No credit scoring on apps up to 85% LVR
    2. No LMI on 85% LVR
    3. No Genuine Savings option
    4. Sharp rates (for the time being) on investment loans

    It can be for either owner occupied or investment.

    And either P&I or IO repayments.
