The show features New Zealand’s sharpest legal advisor, Aunty and her well-meaning nephew, Herman Faleafa. Herman means well but he often has his head in the clouds and doesn’t think things through, especially when it comes to money. So he needs Aunty and others to keep his feet on the ground.
Each episode focuses on a common situation that many New Zealanders will find themselves in, for example getting a loan or being a guarantor. Aunty does her best to make sure Herman has his head on straight and knows his rights, with a few laughs along the way.
So join Aunty and Herman in making sure you know your rights... from your wrongs.
Thinking about getting a loan
Herman dreams of watching the rugby on his own big screen TV. He visits his local lender Marcus Money after deciding to take out a loan to purchase a 4K TV and finds getting a loan is not like it was in the past.
Herman needs someone to guarantee his loan so he can realise what Aunty refers to as “his ridiculously large television set aspirations”. But when Marcus outlines exactly what being a guarantor means, will Aunty agree to guarantee Herman’s loan?
Problems with your loan
In a totally unexpected hot pie incident Herman crashes his car into an ice cream van and loses his ability to earn money as a freelance taxi driver. Wondering if he will still have to make his loan repayments he turns to Aunty and Marcus for help and learns all about hardship applications.
