Section 7 – Complete when a paper title is (if applicable) to be released to the customer (continued)
Please retain this DDR Service Request for your records
By signing this request, you have authorised us to arrange for funds to be debited from your account. You should refer to this
request and this agreement for the terms of the arrangement between us and you.
We will only arrange for funds to be debited from your account as authorised in this Request.
You should check:
with your financial institution whether direct debiting is available from your account as direct debiting is not available through
BECS on all accounts offered by financial institutions.
your account details which you have provided to us are correct by checking them against a recent account statement; and
with your financial institution before completing the Direct Debit Request if you have any queries about how to complete the
Direct Debit Request.
It is your responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient clear funds available in your account to allow a debit payment to be
made in accordance with the Direct Debit request.
If there are insufficient clear funds in your account to meet a debit payment:
a. you may be charged a fee and/or interest by your financial institution;
b. you may also incur fees or charges imposed or incurred by us; and
c. you must arrange for the debit payment to be made by another method or arrange for sufficient clear funds to be in your
account by an agreed time so that we can process the debit payment.
You should check your account statement to verify that the amounts debited from your account are correct.
If you believe there has been an error in debiting your account, you should notify us directly at the Branch and confirm that
notice in writing with us as soon as possible so that we can resolve your query more quickly. Alternatively you can take it up
directly with your financial institution.
If we conclude as a result of our investigations that your account has been incorrectly debited we will respond to your query by
arranging for your financial institution to adjust your account (including interest and charges) accordingly. We will also notify
you in writing of the amount by which your account has been adjusted.
If we conclude as a result of our investigations that your account has not been incorrectly debited we will respond to your query
by providing you with reasons and any evidence for this finding in writing.
We will keep any information (including your account details) in your Direct Debit Request confidential.
We will make reasonable efforts to keep any such information that we have about you secure and to ensure that any of our
employees or agents who have access to information about you do not make any unauthorised use, modification, reproduction
or disclosure of that information.
