There are times when a holiday from your mortgage repayments would really help. Repayment Pause is a feature on eligible home loans where you can apply to reduce or stop repayments for an approved period.
Apply for Repayment Pause during leave from the workforce
If you have an eligible home loan and are facing a legitimate period of leave from the workforce, you can apply for a Repayment Pause. For example, you may want a Repayment Pause during maternity leave or for travel. It’s also possible to apply for a Repayment Pause if you’re ahead of your home loan repayment schedule.
You can choose to pause your home loan repayments entirely, or just reduce them.
There are 2 types of Repayment Pause available:
- Repayments fully paused
- Repayments reduced to a requested amount.
You will need to have had your home loan for 12 months to be eligible for a Repayment Pause.
All Repayment Pause requests are subject to Bank approval. Normally the timeframe for a Repayment Pause is for 3-12 months. Not all loan types are eligible, so please check your Terms and Conditions booklet or call us on 1300 304 660.
