    Hi,
    Can I make additional repayments through Auspost (or any other means) instead of online?

    Thanks

      Hi Ana,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      If you’d like to make additional repayments other than online, you can do so at an Aussie branch.

      Thanks,

    Thinking of purchasing an investment property and was wondering what are the fees for borrowing 85%, 90% and 95% LVR based on a property valued at 900k ?

    Thanks
    Vito

      Hi Vito,

      Thanks for your question.

      There is no specific ‘LVR fee’ associated with the Aussie Select Basic Fixed home loan, so all the standard fees and charges apply. Please refer to the fees tab for a list of fees you could be liable for*:

      Legal fee – $363
      Settlement fee – $100
      Exit fee – $400

      *Correct at the time of writing.

      If you’d like, you can click to ‘go to site’ to get in touch with a home loan consultant from Aussie for a full disclosure of the fees you could be liable for.

      Cheers,
      Shirley
