Task 1: You are required to have a third party to observe this role play in a simulated environment. You will need to provide the observer/third party declarer with the role play guidelines and marking/sign-off sheets to ensure they are fully conversant with what is being asked of them.
Task 2: You will notice that there are two options of Case Study within this assessment – the first (A) is more specifically for Mortgage Brokers, the second (B) for brokers in the Plant & Equipment and Motor Vehicle field.

The Mortgage File Checklist must be submitted with the fully completed file. File encompasses all documents from intitial contact with the clients until settlement of the loan. Documents must be submitted in a suitable logical order and consist of all relevant NCCP documents. Necessary documents on the checklist are highlighted in red, and must be submitted with the assessment.
The documentation required should be consistent for all submissions, however student submissions will vary in regards to outcomes based on the interpretation of the data and “client” responses during the interview process

IMPORTANT NOTE: AAMC Training only wants to see your own work. Please do not upload blank assessment tasks or instructions on how to complete same. When this extra information is uploaded it presents unnecessary work for the assessors and in turn delays our assessment responses.

Task 1: Role Play – Student skills identification
The following role play must be conducted to further determine your skills and knowledge in dealing effectively with clients. The observer must act as your chosen clients and you will be asked to explain certain parts of the application process. You must endeavour to establish rapport with the client (observer).

Task 2: Case Study – Loan application preparation
You will notice that there are two options of Case Study within this assessment – the first (A) is more specifically for Mortgage Brokers, the second (B) for brokers in the Plant & Equipment and Motor Vehicle field. Please complete only the stream relevant to you and indicate this on the assessment cover sheet.
Chosing one of the case studies presented below, prepare a loan file from contact with the clients to preparing the loan application for lodgement with the client’s lender of choice.
In completing this task, you need to demonstrate to your assessor that you are competent in the following areas and able to:
•    communicate ideas and information
•    collect, analyse and organise information
•    plan and organise activities
•    work with others in a team
•    use mathematical ideas and techniques
•    solve problems by providing solutions
•    use technology.
To do this you will need to compile a report (Client Needs Review/Fact Find) indicating your thoughts and processes on different aspects of your application. These may include, but are not limited to:
•    the choice of loan product for your client and the information about the loan product that you presented to them. Where you located the product information. Remember there is no right/wrong answer to this area, it is always subjective.
•    the use of technology to compare the product/fees, find information on the products etc.
•    how you would work in a team situation with your co-workers, lenders, real estate agents, mentor etc.
In areas where you do not have copies of actual supporting documentation, insert a page with the name of the document you would include e.g. copy of driver’s licence for the client.
There are a number of templates in the Member’s Area under ‘Useful Resources’ that you could use in your submission.
Remember there is no right or wrong answer as each client you see presents a new challenge and if you can provide solutions for those challenges you will be well regarded and successful in this industry.
Because this course is taken nationally, we ask that you localise addresses and places of employment so that you can have familiarity with the assessment.
You will have to take into account any necessary adjustment of stamp duty concessions for first home buyers. This will have to be considered when discussing and setting out the fees and costs with your clients. You will have to contact your Office of State Revenue to determine the correct amount of benefits to which your clients are entitled.

CASE STUDY ASSESSMENT OPTIONS:
1.    If you are in a State or Territory that FHOGs are availailable to both forms of home purchasing choose either an existing or new home acquisition for your case study (you do not have to complete one of each).
2.    If you are in a State or Territory that only offers a FHOG on new and not established homes you will have to choose that option for a case study.
If at some later stage the FHOGs rise or fall, please adjust the applicable purchase prices to cater for those changes as this task forms an important part of the assessment process and must be completed.

A sample of the forms mentioned below can be found in the AAMC Members’ Area under “Useful Resources” (www.aamctraining.edu.au)
1.    Financial Services Credit Guide/Credit Guide    Along with the ACR’s profile this guide is handed to the clients at initial interview and it sets out the services that are offered along with the Privacy Policy of that organisation and the complaints procedure.
2.    Authority to Act & Privacy Consent Form    The authority to act allows the finance broker to act on behalf of the client when dealing with the lender and other related parties to loan. The privacy consent form allows the finance broker to store and use relevant client information to assist in the loan application process without breaching privacy laws.  This will most likely be contained in the credit proposal (mentioned below).
3.    Authorised Credit Representative profile    This form is which sets out the Authorised Credit Representative’s profile and authority to act on behalf of a credit licence holder and what products the ACR can introduce to under that authority. At initial interview the clients must be handed a copy. This may be an addendum to the Credit Guide.
4.    Data Collection – Business or Personal Consumer Client Needs Review/fact Find    By using a Client Needs Review/Fact Find you will have all the information required to form an opinion as to what type of loan best suits the clients’ requirements. At the same time you are acting with due diligence in asking the clients questions about their financial security in the event of an unforeseen circumstance that causes financial hardship. You have a legal obligation to yourself and the clients to make them aware of the ramifications of an unexpected illness, accident or even death. By signing a Client Needs Review they can accept your offer of a referral to an insurance professional or alternatively decline your recommendation, thereby you have documentary evidence of your professionalism. You do not have to sell Risk Products but you have complied with the requirements under the Duty of Care by having adopted the above actions.
5.    Costing sheet for fees and charges    Estimate of total fees and charges payable to the financier in relation to applying for the finance will form part of the credit proposal. However the broker may want to complete a cost analysis to determine savings or equity versus costs associated with the purchase and finance. This is not a requirement of the submission but may rather be a process you may want to adopt for purchases.
6.    Interview notes    A file copy of your interview notes will go a long way to avoid any adverse opinions from any audit that may be undertaken by any aggregator company or ASIC official. Whilst documents required under NCC such as a fact find/client needs review, preliminary assessment and credit proposal will highlight requirements and recommendations they may cover all conversations/ time lines between the broker and client.
7.    Preliminary Assessment    Based upon your enquiries as to the financial situation, requirements and objectives of your client you are required to conduct a preliminary assessment to determine whether the proposed credit contract/lease is ‘not unsuitable’ for the client. This must be done prior to suggesting the client applies for, or providing assistance applying for a particular credit contract.
8.    Credit Quote and Credit Proposal Documents    These forms may be incorporate into the one document.
The Credit Quote outlines the maximum fees and charges payable to the credit representative and licensee for credit assistance. Must be provided before credit assistance is provided.
The Credit Proposal document outlines the fees, charges and commissions   relating to the particular credit contract or consumer lease and to whom/by whom they are payable.
9.    Statement of Credit/Mortgage Advice
This is the document the client signs giving the Authorised Credit Adviser authority to act on the client’s behalf and also give privacy consent for the personal details to be passed onto the lending institution. It also advises the amount of commission a broker will receive as well as the costs involved in taking out the loan. A copy of this appointment must be given to the client and a copy kept on your file. This document may be a combination of industry known documents as stated above and not required if you have completed credit proposal and credit quote
10.    Evidence of income    Lenders require documentary evidence of income to support a loan application. Verifying employment may be in the form of two or three consecutively dated payslips plus a PAYG summary that indicates regular overtime or allowances/commissions. A letter or employment contract from the employer will also suffice in the absence of payslips. Other income will require documentary evidence as determined by the lender.
11.    Self-employed/ Commercial clients    A copy of the last two years individual’s and company tax returns/financial statements along with a serviceability assessment for self-employed individual/partner.
12.    Signed statement of assets & liabilities (SOP)    This information allows lenders to readily ascertain the financial standing of the applicants.
13.    Cash flow forecast    When you are arranging funding for the larger type loans, whether it is for plant and equipment or say, a commercial factory unit a Cash Flow Forecast is essential as it will assist the lender in appreciating where the business is headed. But remember it will have no bearing on the lender’s decision-making as it will look only at anecdotal evidence.
14.    Serviceability    When submitting an application you are to include a Serviceability Assessment sheet which shows the lender you have ensured the clients can afford the loan. You will find these assessment tools form part of the lenders’ online broker toolkit and are relatively simple to use.
When you undertake your accreditation training each lender will provide the facility or you will have access to all the tools through your aggregator.
15.    Copy of the Offer and Acceptance (WA) or Contract of Sale     Lenders need a copy of the completed O&A or COS to verify the purpose of the loan and for the ordering of valuations, if required. You will be advised of their requirements when you complete the accreditation courses. It is also worth noting that some lenders will only carry out a kerb-side valuation when the LVR is 80% or less.
16.    First Home Owners Grant application    Whilst the Federal Government provides the funding for these concessions each State and Territory Government administers the schemes. Therefore so your clients can get the maximum benefits available, your task is to research this area of funding thoroughly by visiting the Office of Revenue in the jurisdiction in which you operate.
These forms are to be completed to accompany your case study files.
17.    First Home Buyers Stamp Duty Concession application    As explained above there are variances in what concessions are available. However notwithstanding the fact that in some areas solicitors/conveyancers or settlement agents handle this aspect of the transaction, we at AAMC believe it is up to the Broker to ensure that there is a smooth settlement transition. This will happen if the Broker provides the clients with the necessary paperwork, has it completed correctly and keeps it on file for presentation to the correct parties when settlement is due to take place.
18.    Fully completed loan application    Let us first accept that all lenders require the same information, however with the layout of their application forms it just appears in different places. You are not only expected to provide the clients’ full personal details, but you are obliged to be honest and frank about the information you are submitting. As a Broker you are also obliged to inform either the lender or the client of any information of which you become aware that may have a material effect on the transaction. If you do not follow this principle you could well become the subject of legal action from either party.
The application forms are quite simple to complete provided, however, you have gathered all the information to make it a simple task.
There is one area on confusion and that is the completion of the “Declaration of Purpose”. By completing this incorrectly you may jeopardise your clients’ rights under the National Consumer Credit Protection CT 2009.
19.    Notes to Lender/    Lenders when assessing a loan rely heavily on information provided. They do not have the privilege of sitting down and interviewing the clients. As you have already learnt, Brokers must provide as much information as possible when submitting a loan application, of any nature, to ensure a fair and reasonable decision can be made by the lender.
Therefore it is in everybody’s interests to highlight valid points in a Cover Sheet. Shown below this table are two options that tell a tale. Please do not just copy these examples and submit – use your initiative and present a cover sheet along similar lines as we have demonstrated.
There will be many and varied reasons why you think an application should be approved so let the lender share your reasons. Don’t make them second guess.
If you follow this path, it will stand you in good stead with the lenders and exhibit a standard of professionalism that unfortunately not enough Brokers take seriously. Half measures or the attitude “Close enough is good enough” does not wash in today’s competitive economic climate. Lenders that receive half-baked applications will put them to one side and get on with the fully detailed ones to acknowledge the correct presentation.
20.    Lenders/Broker document checklist    All lenders have a checklist to ensure you have submitted the application correctly with all the supporting documentary evidence. Please ensure this is completed.
21.    Lenders/Broker document checklist    Due to criminal activities and money laundering you have to provide the necessary identifying documents to support the application. Where you are dealing with a client’s existing lender, note on your cover sheet that you haven’t supplied the information because client is known to the lender.
Some lenders carry out their own verification through their branch network.
22.    Business Registration/ Constitution and/or Trust Deed    Business registration legitimises the authenticity of the applicant.
The Constitution and/or Trust Deed reflect the authority of those able to act for and on behalf of the company.

Task 3: Process Applications for Credit
You are required to demonstrate that you understand the lenders policy and procedures for processing an application for credit i.e. from the point of view of a lenders credit analyst. Once your loan application is ready to be submitted you must provide supporting evidence that you have:
•    Checked and verified application details including all information to support the application are in accordance with the lenders credit policy and procedures.
•    Your assessment decision to recommend the credit application refers to/is within the lenders policy and procedures.
•    Maintaining application records and completing necessary documentation are according to the lenders legislative requirements and lenders organisational policy and procedures.
Overall, to support your understanding of how an application for credit is processed by the lender; you are required to complete research and provide the following information which is also covered in the learning material:
•    Detailed notes regarding the lender’s organisational approval policy and procedures for the chosen product in your selected case study. Briefly explain why the loan met the policy guidelines and how you researched the product and the guidelines. Including maximum LVR, serviceability ratio, minimum loan etc. If you are unable to access the lenders information readily the alternative is to access the Lender Mortgage Insurers (i.e. Genworth/QBE) guidelines which are readily available on their web pages.  Although the case studies provided did not require LMI it is helpful to understand policy guidelines as many types of lenders and loans require LMI cover.
•    Explain the approval guidelines i.e. who can approve/delegation; timeframes etc.
•    Ensure you are adherence to relevant legislation with reference to checking and verifying application/client details and maintaining records i.e. how file and records are maintained, how movements/milestones are monitored etc.

Task 4: Completing Customer File
Students are to submit a fully completed loan application form as well as:
•    A lenders cover sheet detailing the background of the applicants, structure of the loan, loan product applied for, serviceability criteria.
•    Supporting documents for the loan submission as requested by the lender
Finally as a result of your client interview, completing relevant client documents and loan application for the lender; you are now required to complete the remainder of customer file supporting several of your obligations and responsibilities as a Finance Broker. These important steps being the approval process, documentation, settlement and ongoing relationship management. In areas where you do not have copies of actual supporting documentation, insert a page with the name of the document, an explanation of the document and its purpose. You would include e.g. copy of formal/unconditional approval stating conditions of settlement.
There are a number of templates in the Member’s Area under ‘Useful Resources’ that you could use in your submission.
You are required to submit your customer as determined by the chosen case study.  Therefore your file information must contain the following:
1.    Adding to your Interview Notes – Customer Contact Sheet/Record
