Repayments

You can see your balance by signing into Online Banking or the Westpac App. Select the home loan account to see your repayments. Your home loan balance includes any extra repayments you’ve made. This is listed under Available funds.

  

Your loan

When life changes, your home loan should too. Here’s how to adjust the type of loan you have, how it’s set up and how to package your loan.

Variable to fixed

Lock in a fixed rate for 1 to 5 years and have the certainty of knowing what your repayments will be. You may be able to fix 100% of your current variable rate home loan or split the loan into separate fixed rate and variable rate accounts.



Westpac App – sign into the Westpac App, tap your variable home loan, tap Switch to a fixed rate home loan and follow the prompts

Online Banking – sign into online banking, tap your variable home loan, tap Switch to a fixed rate home loan and follow the prompts

 

 

What you need to know
  • Your variable offset benefits don’t apply to your fixed loan
  • You can only make up to $30,000 in extra repayments without incurring break costs
  • A fixed rate incurs break costs and may not be right if you plan to sell your property, refinance or change home loan products


Fixed to variable

Ending your fixed rate term early could attract break costs that run into the thousands. Weigh up the costs before deciding if switching to a variable rate home loan is right for you.
