Things to consider about the Adelaide Bank SmartFix Home Loan

The SmartFix home loan is available for use when purchasing a property and as a home equity loan, with the option to use the equity for personal or investment purposes. It may even be used for the purposes of debt consolidation.

Funding obtained through the SmartFix home loan cannot be used towards a second mortgage or for land purchases. It’s also not an option for the purchase of inner city apartments.

Applications for the SmartFix home loan will not be accepted from companies, trusts, or non-permanent Australian residents.

Features of the Adelaide Bank SmartFix Home Loan

  • Loan amount. You’re able to borrow up to $5 million with Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI). There’s also a minimum of $10,000 with this loan.
  • Maximum Loan-to-Value Ratio (LVR). Borrowers choosing to make principal and interest repayments may qualify for up to 95% of the value of the property, or 90% for those making interest only repayments.
  • Split loan options. You can split this loan into more than one portion. Each split comes with a $100 application fee.
  • 100% Offset account. This loan is rare, as it has a fixed rate but still offers an offset account. Offset accounts are linked transaction accounts which you can deposit funds into. These funds can reduce the amount of interest due on your loan.
  • Repayment frequency. Principal and interest repayments may be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly while interest-only repayments are made monthly. Voluntary additional repayments of up to $20,000 per year may be made without penalty.
  • Redraw. You can redraw additional repayments you’ve made for free online or through phone banking. Redraws may be made free of charge, while manual requests are $50. The minimum amount permitted to redraw is $500.
  • Fees

    • Rate lock. Amount varies. The Adelaide SmartFix comes with a free rate lock for 90 days, meaning you can lock in the advertised rate you want and relax knowing you won’t receive a worse rate during the time it takes to settle.

    • Application fee. $375. This is paid to the bank for assessing, processing and preparing all of the documents necessary for the loan application
    • Settlement fee. $100. This is paid to Adelaide bank for settling the loan
    • Funds disbursement fee. This is a $15 fee.
