Home loans offered by CUA

Basic Variable Home Loan

The Basic Variable Home Loan is a simple and easy-to-manage loan offering unlimited redraw, and flexible repayment options with no penalties for extra, lump-sum repayments. You can opt for an interest-only repayment plan, though an establishment fee does apply.

The Basic Variable Home Loan

Fresh Start Basic Variable Home Loan

The Fresh Start Basic Variable Home Loan option is a basic home loan with no ongoing fees, flexible repayments and free redraw facilities. In order to take out this loan you will need to move all your day-to-day banking to CUA which you can do upon application of your home loan.

Fresh Start Basic Variable Home Loan

Fresh Start Variable  Home Loan

The Fresh Start Variable Home Loan has a competitive interest rate and can be taken out by new borrowers to CUA with at least a 20% deposit, or existing CUA borrowers who are increasing their loan by at least $50,000. It comes with a 100% offset account, the ability to make additional repayments and redraw facilities.

The Fresh Start Variable Home Loan

Standard variable home loan

CUA's Standard Variable Home Loan provides a redraw option and allows lump sum payments to be made, which can lower the overall amount of interest due. This loan only uses the variable interest rate option, though interest-only repayment plans are available. Offset accounts are also available. There are no monthly account-keeping fees associated with this loan. An establishment fee does apply.

The Standard Variable Home Loan

Fixed Rate Home Loan

The Fixed Rate Home Loan is designed for home buyers who want a loan with a consistent repayment plan. At the conclusion of the fixed term, the loan will automatically convert to a Standard Variable Rate Home Loan. Interest-only repayment plans are available. There are no account maintenance fees, but the loan does carry an establishment fee.

The Fixed Rate Home Loan

Premium Fixed Rate Home Loan

The Premium Fixed Rate Home Loan option is similar to the Fixed Rate Home Loan option, but allows you to offset up to $50,000, make additional payments into your loan of up to $50,000 during the fixed period and has a redraw facility. You will receive the competitive fixed home loan rate for a set period. At the end of this set period, your home loan will revert to the Standard Variable Home Loan.

How to apply for a CUA home loan

  • Online application. The first step in applying for a loan with CUA is to complete a short online application. This process only takes a few minutes to complete. You must be over the age of 18, a permanent resident of Australia, and receive regular income from wages or self-employment.
  • Mobile call with CUA agent. After you submit your online application, an agent from CUA will contact you by phone. This agent may ask you for additional information and will explain the loan options available to you.
  • Face-to-face meeting with CUA. The next step will be to have a face-to-face meeting with an agent from CUA. At this point you may be required to provide CUA with paperwork to complete your loan application.

Documents needed to apply for a CUA home loan

Personal information

Personal documentation is the first type of information that CUA is likely to require from you. Below we summarise the most common types of personal documents you may need to provide to CUA:

  • Proof of identification. Before your loan application can be approved, you will need to provide at least 100 points worth of identification.
  • Tax File Number. You will also need to provide CUA with your Tax File Number (TFN) when applying for a home loan.

Property information

In addition to personal information, you will also need to provide documentation relating to the property you are purchasing. CUA uses this paperwork as assurance that the home is being properly sold and that the purchase value is correct.

  • Property valuation. You will need a property valuation on the home you want to purchase to ensure the loan amount matches the actual value of the property.
  • Property title. You will need to provide CUA with a copy of the title of the property you are purchasing. This ensures that the party you are buying the home from has the legal right to sell the property.
  • Home inspection. Depending on the type of home loan you obtain from CUA, you may be required to have a home inspection done prior to purchase. This will help to alert you to any potential problems with the home before you buy it.

Financial information

You will also need to provide CUA with documentation relating to your personal finances, so CUA can assess your ability to repay your home loan.

  • Income. You will need to provide CUA with proof of your wages or self-employment earnings. This may be in the form of regular payslips or year-end tax reports.
  • Additional assets. If you have substantial assets or income other than wages, you will need to provide CUA with documentation of these. CUA will use this information to determine the amount of your home loan.
  • Major outstanding debt. Depending on your specific set of circumstances, you may need to provide documentation for any major outstanding expenses you have. CUA check to see how much you still owe and if you are current with your payments.

About how to compare home loans

CUA’s home loan range may very well offer the right deal for you, but make sure to do your research and compare other loans on the market before you sign on the dotted line.
