Features and benefits of this loan
- Flexible uses. The Mortgage Plus Standard Variable Home Loan is suitable for personal residential use or for investment use. You can use this loan type to purchase a home, refinance a current mortgage from another bank, or construct a new dwelling.
- High maximum LVR. This loan allows you to borrow up to 90% with Lender's Mortgage Insurance, but it should be noted that the promotional interest rate is not available for Loan to Value Ratios above 80%.
- Your choice of repayments. You can leave your repayments on the standard principal and interest payments if you wish, or you can elect to change them to interest-only payments for up to a maximum of five years.
- Split loan options. If you want to avoid any future interest rate increases, you can choose to split your loan so that some of it is fixed in. The remaining portion stays on the standard variable rate to give you access to the flexible features.
- Redraw facility. You can redraw any extra payments from your mortgage accounts at no charge if you make the transfer via Citibank's secure online banking portal. However, if you choose to action your redraw request by fax or over the phone, a Manual Redraw Fee will apply. You can avoid this by using the online banking system instead.
- 100% offset account is available. An offset account helps you reduce the interest available on your home loan.
Linked credit and transaction accounts
The Citibank Mortgage Plus package also lets you link a Citibank credit card to your account. As this is part of the package, you get to enjoy zero annual card fees on some credit card accounts or greatly reduced annual fees on other types of credit card accounts. It will depend which account you choose.
Your Citibank credit card will also give you access to a range of complimentary travel-related insurance policies that cover you if you pay for your trip using your card.
You're also able to link a totally fee-free Citibank Plus, or everyday account, to your Mortgage Plus package. This gives you the ability to make an unlimited number of fee-free withdrawals from your account at more than 3,000 Citibank ATMs right across the country. The Citibank Plus account also offers free international ATM withdrawals, foreign transactions and international money transfers.
On top of this, Citibank is happy to reward Mortgage Plus customers with a free bottle of wine each time you dine at any of their partner restaurants.
