While only being in the New Zealand market for approximately eight years, Resimac is helping Kiwis with competitive mortgage solutions. This organisation is recognised as a non-bank lender and its main focus is providing loans for people that have had issues with mainstream mortgage lenders.

Resimac (formerly known as RESIMAC Direct) understands that not everyone fits the normal lending criteria mould set out by most loan providers. It welcomes customers who have bad credit, a history of not meeting repayments or who have other debt to think about. Those that are self-employed or have been bankrupt can also apply, so this is a lender to consider if you fall into one of these categories and have been turned away by retail banks.
