State Custodians is not an available lender on our panel. This is a review only.


State Custodians is no longer accepting new applications. They are only looking after their existing customers.

Resimac has replaced it by introducing their own online lender.

Since being purchased by Resimac in early 2014, State Custodians operates more like a lender than it ever did in the past.

Their real selling point is that they are a specialist lender for tough loan scenarios and offer competitive pricing in these areas. Prior to their acquisition by Resimac, their management team was renowned in the industry and had an excellent reputation, although we’re not sure whether any of this team have remained.

They’re also award-winning having taken out Money magazine’s ‘Non-bank Lender of the Year’ award for five years in a row.
