Frequently asked questions

You may need to pay break costs if you close a fixed rate home loan account before the fixed rate term has ended. Paying your loan down completely before the end of the fixed term, switching to a variable rate or making more than the maximum amount in extra repayments are all things that could incur break costs.


Break costs vary depending on the remaining term and balance on your loan. If you want to know what the break costs could be on your current Westpac fixed rate loan, request a call back and one of our home finance managers will give you a break cost figure.

You need to speak with one of our home finance managers to break a Westpac fixed home loan. To break your existing fixed options home loan, complete a request a call back form or call us on 131 900.

In most cases, if you have a fixed rate home loan, you will be able to switch part or all your balance to a new variable rate loan. Note that this may incur break costs if you are making the change before the end of the fixed rate term.


It is also possible to switch all or part of a variable home loan balance to a fixed rate if you want to. Break costs don’t apply when switching from variable to fixed, although you may need to pay other fees.

A split home loan is when you separate your home loan balance into two different accounts, one with a variable interest rate and one with a fixed interest rate.


Splitting your home loan balance with a fixed and variable interest rate allows you to get the best of both worlds. With the fixed portion of your home loan, you can lock in your interest rate and be certain that your repayment amounts won’t change for the duration of the fixed rate term.


The variable rate portion of your loan lets you take advantage of any interest rate decreases and get ahead with no limit on the amount of extra repayments you can make.

Interest Only in Advance is a repayment option that offers Fixed Rate Investment Property Loan customers an additional interest rate discount for paying 12 months interest in advance.


By prepaying interest, you can potentially reduce your tax liability for the coming financial year and conveniently consolidate interest repayments into one lump sum payment.


This is not financial advice: we recommend that you consult your financial adviser to determine the benefits which may be applicable.

Customers with existing Investment Property Loans can apply to switch to an Interest Only in Advance product.


Existing Interest Only in Advance customers with fixed rate terms expiring will receive a letter of offer to review their Interest Only in Advance arrangements 4 - 6 weeks prior to fixed rate expiry.


New customers can establish an Interest Only in Advance loan through our standard application process.

If you choose to pay Interest Only in Advance for 12 months on your fixed rate investment loan in a lump sum, you receive a 0.20% p.a. discount on your fixed interest rate. If you also take up the Premier Advantage Package#, you will receive an additional 0.20% p.a. discount on your rate.1
