1 You can choose to pay Principal and Interest weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. Only monthly payments are available for Interest Only. The maximum Interest Only payment period over the life of a loan is 10 years for Investment Home Loans and 5 years for Owner Occupied Home Loans, so long as there is at least 5 years remaining on the Contracted Loan Term. We have different rates that apply, depending on whether you are making Interest Only payments or Principal and Interest repayments. During an Interest Only period, your Interest Only payments won't reduce your loan balance unless you choose to make additional repayments. At the end of an Interest Only period, your repayments will increase to cover Principal and Interest components.

Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate. Comparison rates for variable Interest Only loans are based on an initial 5-year Interest Only period. Comparison rates for fixed Interest Only loans are based on an initial Interest Only period equal in length to the fixed period. During an interest only period, your interest only payments will not reduce your loan balance. This may mean you pay more interest over the life of the loan.

~ We charge the Rate Lock Fee when we process your request. It is therefore important that you have sufficient funds in your nominated account. The Rate Lock feature only applies to new Fixed Rate home loan and Fixed Rate Investment home loan applications. Rate Lock does not apply to Home Seekers, switching, splitting, top-ups, loan purpose transfers or repayment changes.
Rate Lock is an optional feature that allows you to lock in your reference interest rate for 90 days for a non-refundable fee. We lock in the reference interest rate applicable on the day we receive your completed Rate Lock request form.
The Rate Lock Fee will be charged to your home loan when the Rate Lock request is processed and this is when the Rate Lock period begins.
Rate Lock is only available on 1-5 year periods. Applies to each Fixed Rate loan that has selected the Rate Lock feature. Rate Lock can be requested up until funding and a non-refundable fee applies. At the end of the fixed rate period, the interest rate converts to the applicable Standard Variable Rate relevant to your loan purpose and repayment type at that time, less any applicable package discount specified in your Loan Contract.
