Frequently asked questions

No, the calculator only shows you an indication based on the figures you’ve provided. The lender or financial institution still has the final decision.

In these cases, you’ll need to call your lender up and ask for a quote. It’s worth noting that LMI is different according to the amount you borrow and the who the insurer is.

These calculators have been developed with sound mathematics to produce the results based on the information you’ve provided. The more accurate the fields you enter, the more accurate the figures.

For some interest rates and fees, you will need to ask your financial institution or Office of State Revenue. These include things like, discharge fees, break costs and stamp duty. The main reason for this is because they are based on your personal situation, and so are different for everyone.

      Hi E,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      The cost of building solid brick per square metre usually depends on the type of brick material you’ll use. It might be good to check with construction stores in your area to compare the price. Meantime, if in case you’d like to get an idea how much to build a house, there’s a good guide here worth checking.

    I owe my one of the big 4 banks a total of $1.2M as a home loan. This home loan is currently on Interest Only fixed for 2 years at 3.75%. In a month time, the 2 years fixed will end. I have asked the bank to extend my home loan as it’s at 3.75% fixed for further 3 years because the P&I repayment will be too high for now.
    You guessed it they are going around the bush without any answer to my request. Is there any other option for me to keep my repayment as low as possible for further 3 years? Can the $1.2M home loan be split e.g. half would be interest only fixed for 3 years and the other half P&I for 3 years? Please if the split can be done show me the calculation formula &Interest &Pricipal payments in details and how much the monthly repayment after the split? Currently, I am paying $3,750 per month at interest only.

    Thank you.

      Hi Aboud,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      The answer to your question depends on your chosen lender. Ultimately, the lender will assess your situation and determine the best option for you.

      However, for now, I would suggest that you refinance to another interest-only loan provider if your current lender won’t extend the interest-only term. Please review and read our Interest-only home loan refinance guide. On that page, you will see a table that allows you to conveniently compare your options. Once you find the right one for you, click on the “Go to site” green button to learn more or initiate your application.

      Now, if this isn’t possible or too difficult for you, another thing you can do is speak to a mortgage broker. They have the necessary knowledge and experience to help you discuss other available options. Click here to find the right mortgage broker for you.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      If you are talking about a Life Insurance Death benefit, it is the amount on a life insurance policy, annuity or pension that is payable to the beneficiary when the insured or annuitant passes away. … Alternatively, a death benefit may be a large lump-sum payment from a life insurance policy.

      Hope this information helps

    i am would like to ask with the prepay card is when the money runs does the card expiry or not. And will it allows other people to put money onto. Also does have a 3 pin number on the back of it like a credit card have.

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      DeeNovember 11, 2016Staff

      Hi Warren,

      Thanks for your question.

      Prepaid cards have different expiration dates but mostly one to three years, regardless if it still has a balance or none.

      Yes, you can load funds onto the account and spend up to the amount available on the card.

      For the security of users, most prepaid cards have predefined PIN on the back of the card.

      Hi Simon,
      thanks for the question.

      Moving from a job where you’re employed vs being self-employed may mean you will need to apply for a low doc loan rather than a regular full doc loan. A low doc loan allows you to self-verify the income you state that you make, and uses other evidence such as a letter from your accountant to help with the verification process. You can read more about them here.

      I hope this helps,
