If you do make extra payments off the mortgage balance and you need them back again for other purposes, you can access those funds via the redraw facility. You can transfer those funds into your transaction account using the secure online banking portal at no charge. You can also access the redraw facility via phone banking or by fax.
Be advised that a Manual Redraw Fee will apply if you choose to use the phone banking or fax options.
About this loan
What are the features and benefits of the Citibank Basic Mortgage?
The Citibank Basic Mortgage is ideal for personal residential use or for investment purposes. You can use it to purchase an existing home or to refinance a current home loan over from another lender.
You can nominate to change the standard monthly payments over to weekly or fortnightly if this suits your pay schedule better. You're also able to nominate to have your direct debit payments come out at amounts that are higher than the minimum amount due, if you want to pay a bit extra.
The interest rate offered on the Basic Variable Mortgage applies only to loans that are between 80.01% and 90% of the property value. Keep in mind that additional Lender's Mortgage Insurance fees will apply for any loan amounts exceeding 80% of the property value.
