A difficulty variation is really modification to your regards to the mortgage, centered on monetaray hardship.

When your loan provider declines your hardship application, they need to offer reasons. If you should be perhaps not pleased with their reaction, you can easily grumble right to the financial institution or to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
