The cash rate is now 0.75% and lenders are dropping variable rates below 3.00%.

The Reserve Bank of Australia has cut the cash rate for the third time in five months. Mortgage interest rates have never been so low and now they're going lower.

Here's a list of the lenders that are passing on the Reserve Bank's cash rate cut. Some lenders are passing on the full 0.25% cut immediately, some have specified a future date their cut will take effect and others are passing on some of the cut.

We are updating this list every time another lender announces a cut.

I have a mortgage: What should I do?

Start by checking your current interest rate and seeing if there are lower rates on offer for the same mortgage type. Then check if your lender is planning on cutting your rate any time soon.

If it isn't and there are better offers available, it's time to think about switching lenders. You could save a significant amount of money.
