Things to consider about the Commonwealth Bank Fixed Rate Home Loan with Wealth Package
The Fixed Rate Home Loan with Wealth Package is a full documentation loan that requires all the details of your income, assets and debts.
The loan is suitable for owner occupiers, investors and can also be used to purchase land or for bridging finance purposes. It is not available for business purposes, purchasing an off-the-plan property or construction.
Features of the Commonwealth Bank Fixed Rate Home Loan with Wealth Package
- Loan-to-value ratio (LVR) and loan term: This loan has a maximum loan term of 30 years. This loan allows you to borrow up to 80% of the value of the property without lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI). If you wish to borrow more than this you will be asked to pay LMI.
- Rate Lock: This enables you to lock in the interest rate at the time of application for up to 90 days. It protects you in the event that the advertised rate rises before your loan is finalised.
- Interest-only: This loan allows you to pay off only the interest component rather than both the interest and principal. This lowers your repayments each month, which may be beneficial for extra cash flow to renovate or invest in alternative assets.
- Repayment schedule: If you choose the interest only option your repayments will need to be paid each month. Borrowers paying principal and interest repayments can choose weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment schedules.
- Additional payments: You can put extra funds towards this loan to pay it off early. This is capped at $10,000 per year without penalty if you exceed this amount you may be charged break costs and administration fees.
- Wealth Package discounts: Package your loan and receive package discounts on other banking products. This includes fees waived for some personal loans, credit cards and transaction accounts. Discounts are also available on some insurances for car, home and loans. As well as discounts on the interest rate of some personal loans.
- Split loan option: Splitting your loan will give you the benefits of both a fixed rate loan and a variable rate loan. If interest rates rise your fixed rate portion will shield you from the increased costs. If rates decrease the variable rate will maximise any savings.
- Partial offset account: You can link a Commonwealth Mortgage Interest Saver Account (MISA) to this loan. The balance left in the MISA offsets the same amount in your loan by 1.5% p.a. For example, if your MISA balance is $5,000 then $5,000 of your home loan balance would have the interest rate decreased by 1.5%. This can save you money over the course of the year, as well as shorten your loan term. You need to have a minimum of $1,000 in your MISA to begin the offset process.
- Get access to funds in emergencies: You can withdraw funds from your MISA at any time, as long as the withdrawal is for a minimum of $500. This can be done at a branch, over the phone, via internet banking, at some ATMS, via EFTPOS or at Australia Post.
There is application fee with this loan but below are some of the fees that can be charged:
- Annual fee: $395. This is a package fee that replaces other fees and allows for package discounts.
- Rate lock: $750. Your interest rate can change up until you sign your loan documents, this fee is to lock in the advertised rate at the time of application.
- Settlement fee: $200. This is a fee charged for the creation of your loan accounts.
