Did you know?

With variable interest rate loans, you can contribute as much in extra repayments as you like, with no yearly limit. Variable rate loans also don’t require you to pay break costs if you pay your loan off before the end of its term.

The key difference with fixed rate home loans is that there are limits on the additional repayments you can make. For example, with a Westpac fixed rate home loan, you can make up to $30,000 in additional repayments per fixed period term. You may also need to pay break costs if you want to pay off the balance early.

Westpac Home Loan customers can also choose to split their home loan into two – one loan with a fixed interest rate for a set number of years and one with a variable rate. This way, you can lock in a rate on the fixed portion of your loan and still make extra repayments on both loans to get ahead.

Fixed interest rates:

The Bank will apply the fixed rate that is available at the loan settlement date. At the end of the fixed rate period the interest rate will convert to the applicable variable home loan interest rate unless a new fixed rate term is selected and then the fixed rate is determined two business days prior to the refix. Fixed rates are also available to existing variable rate loan customers looking to fix all or part of their loan.

 

Rate Lock: The Bank will apply the fixed rate that is available at the loan settlement date, unless the customer locks a fixed rate in on the loan using our Rate Lock feature. The rate lock fee is 0.10% of the loan amount. At the end of the fixed rate period the interest rate will revert to the applicable variable home loan interest rate unless a new fixed rate term is selected and then the fixed rate is determined two business days prior to the refix.
