    We are selling our home to live on a boat. A oat has come up that we like but we would need bridging finance of 155000. Can you help? Thank you

      Hi Jeanette,
      thanks for the question.

      Unfortunately as we’re not Westpac but rather a comparison service, we cannot answer this. I would recommend you contact Westpac directly for more information. Note that some lenders might not offer a bridging loan in this situation as they will not classify the boat as security in the same way residential property is, meaning they might recommend a personal loan to finance the boat rather than a home loan. It would be useful to contact a mortgage broker directly for more information.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

    hi i am not trusting my bank statement
    because i am not able to understand them?
    when i asked at the bank what this charges mean? she said she will have to find out as she is not sure?
    this is a personal banker that i see all the time and knows my loan very well.
    what do you think ? please

      Hi Dina,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au which is an online comparison service, so please note that we don’t represent Westpac or their home loan products.

      Without knowing which charge your referring to, I’m afraid we can’t be of much assistance.

      Your best course of action would be to wait and speak with a Westpac representative again.

      Kind regards,
      Belinda

    Hi as a non resident but a NZ citizen, can I apply for a home loan with Westpac, and/or be on the same loan document as an Australian resident.

    Thanks

      Hi Jan,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes this possible, though you are still required to meet Westpac’s lending criteria.

      Also, you’ll need to apply over the phone or within a branch (remember to bring all your documentation with you).

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    Currently we do all our banking with Commonwealth bank, we have an Investment Home loan for 398000 and our residential home loan of 498000,
    what benefits would we receive if we switched to Westpac

    regards

    Linda

      Hi Linda,

      Thanks for your comment.

      This question is probably best directed at Westpac. Their point of difference would probably best their customer service, as their interest rates are generally the same.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    Hi, Do you do the DHOAS scheme through Westpac for current serving members?

      ShirleyAugust 16, 2013Staff

      Hi Dan,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Westpac Banking Corporation provides the DSH home loan, but there some conditions. You should discuss this first with Westpac before committing to anything.

      Hope this helps,
      Shirley
