Terms & Conditions
- This offer is valid from 1 July, 2021 until 31 June, 2022
- A Qualified Referral is defined as an approved and funded home loan for an owner occupier or investment property by a person (a "Referred Customer") who applies for a First Option home loan as a direct result of a recommendation by a Referrer.
- The Referred Customer may be an existing First Option member but the qualifying mortgage must be a new home loan application with a remaining balance of more than $150,000
- The Referred Customer and the Referrer cannot be the same person (for example, using a different email address).
- To be successful, details of the Referral must be recorded either in the website form (link here) or by informing our team in writing before the home loan application is submitted for approval. It is not possible to claim a Referral reward after the application submission or possible to retrospectively claim a Referral reward for home loans submitted and approved before the Referrer’s details are provided.
- As a First Option member you are limited to four Qualified Referrals for the period of the offer. To earn further Referral rewards would require you to hold a Mortgage Brokers licence.

- Rewards are payable as an electronic transfer of AUD$1,000 into your nominated First Option bank account. Rewards are payable on successful funding of the Referred home loan, not on approval of the loan application. Rewards will be paid to Referrers within 30 days of funding of the new loan.
