    when paying off a mortgage in full, what charges are there

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ShirleyFebruary 12, 2015Staff

      Hi Brown,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you repay your mortgage early, you’ll be liable for break fees and discharge costs.

      The fees and charges will depend on your loan and how early you paid it off.

      For more information, please see our page on home loan exit fees.

    I want to be a Guarantor for my daughter who wants to borrow $335000 to buy a unit in Merrylands. She wants to borrow 100% loan. I have two mortgages with bankwest. No problem with my repayments. Value of my houses $1800000. I owe bankwest on both mortgages $546000. If I can get a loan from the bank I may transfer my loans to a bank that will accept to give my daughter the loan and I am her guarantor. My daughter has permanent job with the department of corrective services on an income of $70000 plus a year.
