At Dispute Assist, we resolve bank complaints and disputes independent of the banks and the Financial Ombudsman Service, AUSTRALIA wide.
- Do you have a bank dispute, you cannot make your repayments, you received a demand to repay your debt in full or fears of bankruptcy?
- Are you trying to get help with a bank complaint or bank dispute and is your bank giving you the run around or ignoring you?
- Does your bank dispute or bank complaint relate to a personal bank loan, business bank loan, corporate bank loan, home loan, mortgage shortfalls, repossession, bank guarantees or mediation?
- Has your loan been cancelled?
- Have you lost your job or fallen ill and cannot pay your mortgage?
- Is the Financial Ombudsman Service unable to help you or have they closed your complaint?
Your bank complaint or bank dispute most likely started with an error, a demand, a decision or complaint that appeared unrealistic or unfair or maybe there was a change of circumstances. The errors and mistakes may have compounded, the bank may be taking months to sort out your dispute, there may be a stalemate or you may have been fobbed off.
