    Home occupied loan is that mean must live by self or family and cannot rent out?

      Hi Damien,

      Thank you for your question.

      Yes, owner-occupied means a residence primarily used or lived in by its buyer. You can rent it out at some point but you may need to contact your lender first. Almost all mortgage loans specify when the homes bought with those loans can be rented out.

      You may want to check our extensive comparison of home loans on this page.

      I hope this has helped.

    Hi, just wondering if there is a limit to the amount of money you can have in your offset account?

      Hi Tamben,

      Thanks for your question.

      The ING DIRECT Orange Advantage Loan comes with a 100% offset facility. Say you have a mortgage of $100,000 and you also have $100,000 balance retained in your offset account, you would pay absolutely no interest on your mortgage at all.

    Hi, would you guys know if ING Direct writes construction loans and if so, can this particular type of loan( orange advantage) be used as construction loan for the knock down and rebuild of a PPOR? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Wendy,

      Thank you for contacting we are a financial comparison website and a general information service.

      As far as we are aware ING DIRECT no longer offers construction loans, however, in regards to using the Orange Advantage Loan for construction you will need to clarify with ING DIRECT directly as I do not believe they allow this.

    How do offset accounts work? I want to refinance an existing property and currently have no offset account, just the loan where additional payment reduce the interest but are still available in redraw. Is Orange Everyday bank account the offset account? Or is the offset account a different account?

    • Staff
      May | August 9, 2016

      Hi Greta,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Basically, an offset account is like a regular transaction account that has been linked to your mortgage account. It is one of the commonly known features offered on several home loans (usually on variable rate loans and some on fixed rate loans). You can put money into this account and it helps to reduce the interest payable on your home loan.

      The Orange Everyday bank account, for instance, can be linked to your home loan as your offset account.

    Can you please confirm my understanding of the following….

    “Loyalty bonus. Receive 1% cash back into your home loan for all monthly repayments above $3,000 when you also deposit your salary, or an amount of more than $1,000 per month, in an Orange Everyday bank account.”

    From what I understand, you would have quite a large loan where you are paying a minimum 3000 per month, assuming I meet the other criteria of 1000 or more into the Everyday account per month.

    So if I pay 4000 in monthly repayments, I receive 1% of the difference between 4000 and 3000 which = $10.
    Is this correct?

      Hi Dean,

      Thank you for your question.

      With ING Orange Advantage Offset Home Loan, if you also have an Orange Everyday transaction account and deposit your salary into it (of at least $1,000 per month), you will receive 1% cash back based on monthly mortgage repayments of up to $3,000.

      For instance, if you are making repayments of $3,000 per month, this could mean you will receive $30 cash back per calendar month.

      Hope this has answered your question.

    hi, i have been with ING DIRECT Orange Advantage Loan (4.29% interest rate) for a month now, but i have changed my mind and would like to sell my property. How much fees do i have to pay apart from exit fee ($250)? Mine is variable rate. Cheers

      Marc | November 26, 2015

      Hi Wei,
      thanks for the question.

      While you won’t be liable to pay break costs as this loan is not a variable rate home loan, the best way of finding out all the charges you would pay is to contact ING DIRECT directly. They’ll be able to give you an accurate quote for the costs you may have to pay to leave your home loan.

      I hope this helps,

      Hi Mick,

      Thank you for your comment on, a financial comparison website.

      The 100% offset account attached to the ING DIRECT Orange Advantage Loan is a single transaction account that you can deposit funds in that can then help to reduce the amount of interest charged on your loan.

    PK | July 15, 2014

    With 95% LVR – do you have to have additional funds to cover other items such as Stamp Duty mortgage insurance etc or can it be incorporated into the loan which in effect would bring the LVR above 95%.?

    Do you have any age restrictions regarding these loans?

    • Staff
      Shirley | July 16, 2014

      Hi PK,

      Thanks for your question.

      The LVR includes LMI capitalisation, but doesn’t include other upfront costs such as stamp duty and legal fees etc.

      To be eligible for this loan you need to be aged 18 or over.
