Credit law: Assisting clients experiencing mortgage stress amidst rising interest rates

April 4, 2024, 10am - 11am (Qld time)
Hosted by: Community Legal Centres Queensland

Over a decade of soaring property growth, generous tax incentives for property investors and record low interest rates has resulted in Australian households being among the most indebted in the world.

In this webinar, Josh Mennen, Principal Lawyer & National Litigation Leader at Maurice Blackburn, will look at this problem in the context of unprecedented interest rates increases which will see thousands tipped from fixed to variable rates. Josh will discuss borrowers rights under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (Cth) and explore the pros and cons of taking a complaint to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) as opposed to litigating.
