What is the impact to my repayments?

Principal and Interest variable rate home loans

We’ll send a letter with details of the new minimum monthly repayment amount and when this starts, giving you time to adjust arrangements. If you have a direct debit set up for your home loan repayments, this will be automatically updated, as required, to meet your new minimum monthly repayment amount.

Interest only variable rate home loans

Your repayment changes each month depending on the interest that is charged to your loan.  If you have a direct debit set up for your home loan repayments, this is automatically updated each month to meet your interest only repayment.

Fixed interest rate home loans

Repayments are not affected by variable interest rate changes during your fixed rate period.

+LVR stands for the initial loan to value ratio at loan approval. LVR is the amount of your loan compared to the Bank’s valuation of your property offered to secure your loan expressed as a percentage. Home loan rates for new loans are set based on the initial LVR and don’t change because of changes to the LVR during the life of the loan.
