How do I redraw my extra home loan repayments?

If you’ve made any extra repayments towards your Bankwest home loan, that money has built up in surplus – and you could redraw those extra repayments for free. Here’s how.

First thing's first – what's your surplus?

To estimate your surplus, just take your available balance and minus your next repayment from it. You can see your available balance when you check your account balance in Bankwest Online banking and the Bankwest App.

If you have a variable rate loan

You can redraw your surplus funds through the Bankwest App or Bankwest Online Banking.

Redraw in the app

  1. Log in to the Bankwest App
  2. Select your home loan account
  3. Select ‘Make a payment’ and choose between ‘My accounts’, ‘Payees’ or ‘BPAY® biller’.
     

Redraw in online banking

  1. Log in to Bankwest Online Banking
  2. Go to ‘Payments & transfers
  3. Use an internal transfer to move the money from your home loan account
  4. If you want to transfer the funds to another person’s account or use them to pay a bill, you can also make a ‘Pay AnyBody’ or ‘BPAY’ transfer to another person’s account.
