Manage my home loan

Get to know the things you could do with your Bankwest home loan – and how to make the most of it.

Getting started

Once you have a Bankwest home loan, here's the stuff that you need to know.

Waiting for the outcome of your application?

If you’ve submitted a home loan application, either in branch, online, or through your broker, you can check on its progress at any time using our Home Loan Application Tracker. ? Keep in mind – not all home loan applications are able to be tracked through our Home Loan Application Tracker.

 

Manage your loan online and on the go

Online banking and the Bankwest App are convenient ways to manage your loan. You can see your loan balance, transactions and statements, as well as make and change your manually scheduled repayments (although there might be some things you'll need to check your home loan statement or call us for if your loan has multiple limits).

Increasing, reviewing and refinancing my loan

  • Get a home loan health check – we can make sure that you've still got the right home loan and that you're making the most of it.
  • Increase (top up) your loan – had your home loan for a while? If you want to do something like renovate, buy a car or consolidate debt, you might want to check if there's equity available in your property.

Things to consider

Paying off my home loan faster

Check out ways to help reduce your home loan interest and the time it takes to pay off your mortgage.

Using an offset account

It's an everyday bank account with a money-saving twist – it helps you save on home loan interest and potentially pay off your mortgage sooner. Opening single and joint offset accounts is easy – you can do it at your fingertips with the Bankwest App if you’ve got an eligible home loan.

Making extra repayments

Any additional home loan repayments you make will build up in surplus. The bigger your surplus, the less interest we'll charge on your home loan.

Even if it's a small extra repayment every week, the savings can be huge.

Consolidating my debts into my home loan

If you structure your repayments in the right way, bringing multiple debts together into one loan could help you save money – and pay your home loan faster.

Repayments and redraw

How to make repayments

It's important that you always make your minimum monthly repayments on time (that's the lowest amount you need to pay each month to meet the terms of your home loan contract).

You can use the app or online banking to manually schedule your repayments from your Bankwest bank account to your home loan.
