Our review process
As part of our commitment to being accurate and dependable, all of our content is internally reviewed by an editor. More detailed and in-depth pieces are typically approved by a subject matter expert or our compliance lead, as necessary. Our editing and review process means that every piece of editorial content is fact-checked and held up to our editorial standards.
Some of our content may include referrals to external parties where we’ve deemed it useful and appropriate. Where this is the case, referral links are clearly marked and that content goes through a strict compliance review process before publishing to ensure it meets our standards for accuracy, fairness and transparency.
Accuracy and corrections
We do our best to make sure every piece of editorial content we publish is as accurate and complete as possible. We know that buying a home, getting help with your finances, investigating your home loan or considering a deposit boost option is an important part of our readers’ lives, and we take that responsibility very seriously. If you see anything on the site that warrants further checking, please feel free to contact us.
