What else can you do with a Westpac Home Loan?

Parental leave

You can apply to reduce your repayments by up to 50% for up to 12 months when you go on parental leave. You may be eligible to apply if you’ve had a Flexi First Option home loan for more than 12 months and have a job to return to once your parental leave ends. Subject to approval, terms, conditions and fees apply. To determine if this feature is right for you, please visit our Parental Leave page.

Offset account

Link an interest offset account to your home loan to reduce the interest charged on the loan balance. Pay no credit interest on the balance in the linked transaction account.

Increase your home loan

Apply to access more funds using our "top up / loan increase" facility (no fees apply if you have the Premier Advantage Package#) if you have equity in your loan and need access to extra cash.

An increase in your loan amount will also mean your repayments and interest charges will be higher. Before you apply, consider potential changes to your financial situation in the future and make sure your budget can accommodate higher repayments. Loan increases are subject to formal approval. Read more about loan increases.
