Use your home loan to pay for the things you need
Did you know you can increase the total amount of your home loan to purchase things like a new car or pay for renovations? It’s called a Home Loan Top Up, and it can be a great way to access extra funds if you need them. It’s quick and easy to arrange via a phone appointment.
With your Home Loan Top Up you can
Pay for renovations
Improve the value of your home with renovations or landscaping
Buy a new car
Upgrade your car or get a second set of wheels for the family
Get all your debts in one place
Consolidate your debts into one manageable monthly repayment
How to decide if a Home Loan Top Up is right for you
The amount you can add to your home loan depends on a few things, like the total value of your loan, the equity in your property, your credit history, the type of loan you have, and your ability to meet increased mortgage repayments.
Topping up your home loan does mean borrowing more money and increasing your debt, so before you make any changes to your loan, make sure you’re comfortable with any potential changes to your repayments.
There are also some things you can’t use a Home Loan Top Up for like business expenses or tax debts, so if you’re still unsure whether it’s right for you just give us a call. We’re always happy to chat through your options with you.
Top up’s are not available for customers on fixed rate home loans.
Rates and Fees:
- $350 upfront establishment fee
- Home loan fees and charges and interest rates will also still apply.
