Freedom Lend is not an available lender on our panel. This is a review only.

A non-bank lender, Freedom Lend considers its strength to be its status as a 100% local, Australian-owned home loan service provider.

Using its online-only presence to its advantage, it saves on overheads and passes on super competitive interest rates to its customers.

Freedom Lend is paid by its underwritten lenders for finding homebuyers like you. Thanks to that, chances are you don’t have to pay for its service in most cases– except for costs like legal charges and discharge fees.
