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 fixed rate loan, request a call back and one of our home finance managers will give you a break cost figure.
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.
