What are you looking to do?
In your Property & Security Request form, we’ll ask you for:
- Info about all borrowers
- Info on any guarantors
- Broker, Solicitor, Executor and Power of Attorney info
- Your home loan account numbers
- Info about new and existing securities, properties or term deposits.
You’ll need to fully discharge your loan, which means removing Westpac’s home loan from your property title. You can start this process by completing our Property & Security Request form.
- A bridging loan – you’ve found your next home and need more time to sell your old one
- Free property reports.
Keeping your loan
‘Porting’ your home loan – switching properties on the same loan – lets you keep your existing Westpac loan open for up to 6 months while property-hunting. You’ll need:
- A signed copy of the Property & Security Request form
- A copy of the signed and dated Contract of Sale
- The Power of Attorney (if applicable), if not already held by the bank
- A copy of the original title of your previous/current property.
Congratulations! If you've fully paid down your home loan, it’s time to request your Certificate of Title.
- Fill out and submit our Property & Security Request form – it can take a few weeks to process
- We’ll process the registration of your Certificate of Title and home loan discharge with your state or territory’s Land Titles office
- Remember to review your will, estate plan and insurances
- Then have a big celebration.
Yes you can. It’s called a partial discharge: when you have more than one property secured on your loan, and you're releasing one of those properties as security, without repaying the full loan. You can start the process by filling out the Property & Security Request form.
