The online mortgage marketplace, HashChing has partnered with global information solutions company, Equifax, that will provide its brokers with efficient, secure digital access to their clients’ complete 90-day transaction history.

The new service will automatically arrange any income and expense items within into 91 individual categories and flag risk factors, before they start filing for a loan. 

It will enable a more accurate understanding of an applicant’s financial position, allowing brokers to recommend the best loan products for individual borrowers.

The HashChing chief Mandeep Sodhi, said he anticipated brokers will" feel better supported and have the tools needed to deliver an improved customer experience."

Specifically, they will be able to turn loan proposals around faster, make better and more accurate loan product decisions, identify and avoid fraud, and help borrowers capture all relevant income and expenses.

“This will assist in protecting households from unnecessary mortgage stress by helping ensure they aren’t taking on loans that they can’t repay.”

HashChing anticipates automating the collation of bank statements and categorisation of income and expenditure receipts will save its brokers an average of 45 minutes especially when there are multiple bank accounts and multiple applicants.

The new approach uses state of the art MOGO technology, enabling the automatic collection and categorisation of income and expense receipts in an instant.

HahChing's Sohi had suggested it "had been near impossible to ensure a borrower is complying with regulations by disclosing all income and expenses."

The move follows the current Royal Commission into Australia’s major banks that found that often brokers failed to accurately verify a borrower’s income.
