Before going into a fixed rate loan

It’s worth thinking about the implications should you decide to break the loan during the fixed period, as break fees may apply.

At the end of the fixed rate period

You may be able to fix a new rate for a further period, or your home loan will revert to the standard variable rate. 2

Frequently asked questions

With a Fixed Rate Home Loan, you fix your interest rate for a set period (between one and five years). Your rate and the repayments you make on your home loan won't change during this period.

At the end of your fixed rate period, you can choose to either fix a new rate, or roll to a variable rate home loan.

With a variable rate loan, the rate can go up and down, which means your repayments can vary. A fixed loan locks in your rate for an agreed period of time, so your repayments remain the same. You should consider the different types of home loans available.

Splitting a fixed loan would be considered a break in the fixed term, so break fees may apply. If you have a variable loan, it's easy to split your loan between variable and fixed.

Technically yes, but you'll likely have to pay break fees which can be in the thousands. The break fee depends on a number of factors, including how long you've got to go on your fixed period.

What's the comparison rate?
It’s a tool that can help you identify the truer cost of a loan. It’s calculated using a standard formula that includes the interest rate, as well as certain fees and charges relating to a loan (not all fees and charges are included).

Comparison rate warning:
Comparison rate is calculated on the statutory assumption of $150,000 loan over 25 years but the minimum required loan amount is $200,000 for the Complete Home Loan Package. Different rates apply for different loan amounts and may depend on the duration of a fixed rate period or the ratio of the loan amount to the property value. WARNING: This comparison rate applies only to the example or examples given. Different amounts and terms will result in different comparison rates. Costs such as redraw fees or early repayment fees, and cost savings such as fee waivers, are not included in the comparison rate but may influence the cost of the loan.

Loan purpose
Loans for a property to live in — also known as owner-occupier loans — include (but aren’t limited to) loans to fund the purchase of a property or refinance an existing loan, where the borrower currently lives or intends to live in the property.

Loans for an investment purpose — also known as investor loans — include (but aren’t limited to) loans where the predominant part is used to invest in shares, land, construction or an established property. They also include refinancing an investor loan.

Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) is the portion of money you are borrowing in relation to the value of the property.

Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is insurance to protect your lender if you have trouble with your repayments in the future. LMI can be an added expense when you’re buying your home, but you can avoid it if you save more than 20% of the value of your property to pay as a deposit.

Other conditions apply.
 

  1. Application tracker not available on lines of credit. Other exclusions may apply.
  2. At the end of the fixed rate period, you’ll roll on to our Standard Variable Rate, minus the discount outlined in your loan contract. For owner occupiers the rate is the Standard Variable Reference Rate or the Standard Variable Interest Only Reference Rate. For investment purposes the standard variable rate is the Investor Variable Reference Rate or the Investor Variable Interest Only Reference Rate.
  3. Redraw is not available while an account is on a Fixed Rate. This feature will be available once the Fixed Rate term ends. Eligible customers who receive a cashback payment into their Fixed Rate home loan account can access those funds upon request.
  4. Offset Transaction Account must be held in the same name as the loan account. Other exclusions apply. Maximum 40% offset is available with our Fixed Rate Home Loan. No offset fee applies during the fixed term although a $12 monthly loan maintenance fee applies. At the end of the fixed term, a $10 monthly offset fee per offset account applies. Monthly offset fee is charged to the offset account, not the home loan.
