Get a range of discounts on your home loan so you save more.

The Wealth Package offers borrowers a discounted rate and other benefits such as an offset account in return for an annual fee.

Features of the Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package

The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package offers you a variety of features and discounts on your loan if you borrow from $350,000 to $10,000,000. These features include discounts on interest rates, reductions in fees and additional accounts. Specifically these features are:

  • Discounted interest rate. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package package offers you a discounted interest rate as the main feature of the loan. By saving on the interest rate you reduce the total amount of interest that is charged to your account and therefore, pay less money over the course of your loan. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package offers interest rate discounts of:
    • 0.60% p.a on a standard variable rate home loan, investment loans;
    • 0.15% p.a on a standard fixed rate home and investment home loans;
    • 0.60% p.a. on line of credit loans.
  • Interest offset account. An interest offset account is an account that allows you to deposit all your savings into an account that is linked to the loan account. These funds will then be taken into consideration when the interest is calculated on the loan account. Therefore, the more money that you have in this account the less money you will pay on interest and the less money you will pay overall on the loan.
  • Deposit guarantee. Sometimes it is not feasible to save up for a deposit while you are paying rent on another house. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package allows you to avoid paying the deposit straight away by paying off deposit guarantee fee when you start paying you loan. While you will still have to pay the deposit at a later date this can give you time to organise your funds.

Fees and charges

You can save on fees and charges you would normally associate with a home loan. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package allows you to gain benefits from borrowing more money with the Commonwealth bank. This loan has no establishment fees that are usually charged on loan accounts. Furthermore, there are no ongoing fees that would normally be associated with a loan account. By not paying the fees that are usually associated with loan accounts you reduce the total amount that you will pay on the loan.

You will need to cover these fees:

  • Transfer fee: $300 This covers the costs of transferring every single detail of your new property into your name.
  • Exit fee: $350 To cover the final costs of your loan.

By borrowing more money with a provider you may be able to take advantage of additional savings packages that may be offered with a provider. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package does just this and allows you to do just this. The Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package gives you discounts on interest rates, account fees, charges that are associated with opening accounts and allows you to take advantage of other features that can save you money. These other features are the interest offset account and the deposit guarantee feature. By taking advantage of the additional saving available with the Commonwealth Bank Wealth Package you can be sure to save money while paying off your loan.

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for your question.

      Redraw has no fees when doing so electronically, that is, transferring from Home Loan to everyday account. However, if you’re redrawing in-branch, this incurs a $5 fee.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

      Hi Dean,

      Thanks for your question.

      You most definitely can – you can make additional payments at any time for however much you wish.

      However, please note that if you repay your entire loan amount early you could be liable for an early termination fee.

      Cheers,
      Shirley
