  • Flexible repayments. You can choose to pay your loan weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
  • Repayment holiday. If you experience financial hardship or you wish to take a break from your mortgage repayments, you may be able to take a repayment holiday.
  • Additional repayments. Additional repayments up to $20,000 can be made without incurring a penalty. However, any extra payments that exceed this amount will incur a fee.
  • Redraw facility. Any additional payments can be redrawn at the end of the fixed rate period, with a minimum redraw amount of $500.
  • Loan portability. This loan is portable, which means if you sell your home, you can bring your home loan with you to the next property you buy. This can save you paying application fees and other mortgage costs associated with setting up a new loan.

    Hi there,

    What does it mean by “It can only be used for new purchases of residential properties” ? Does it apply to existing property ? Is there an option to split half the loan so that, one half is fixed whereas the other is at variable ? Does the variable portion includes an offset account and at what rate?

      Hello Darren,

      Here are my responses to your questions.

      1. What does it mean by “It can only be used for new purchases of residential properties” ? Does it apply to existing property ?
      – New purchases of residential properties mean that it can be a newly taken out loan to purchase an existing home, new or old.

      2. Is there an option to split half the loan so that, one half is fixed whereas the other is at variable ?
      – Yes, you have the option to have your home loan split, part fixed and variable through the Choice Package and Tailored Home loan

      3. Does the variable portion includes an offset account and at what rate?
      – You can definitely have access to offset and redraw facilities with our variable rate home loans

      You may also want to get in touch with NAB directly so they can provide you with a personalized quotation.
      Here is the page for NAB’s Home Loan Enquiry Form

      They also have a live chat feature where their agents can answer all your queries real time.

      Hope this helped.

      Cheers,

    I want to buy a ready made house. With FHOG and some small deposit. Can there be a loan structured to cater to such situation.

    I don’t understand what it means loans over 80% require LMI and how much is that. If I can qualify then I need to get something ready to move by Sept 20th.

    Thank you.

      Hello Danish,

      Thank you for your inquiry today.

      You can study your options for low-deposit home loans on this page. Please take note that each lender has their own eligibility credit criteria to be met, so it is important that you review them before applying.

      As for the Lenders Mortgage Insurance, it can be an upfront cost or can be paid as part of your loan, especially for those who have are applying for a home loan where mortgage is 80% or more of the property value. This is a separate cost and is required by many lenders to give them an assurance that should unexpected circumstances would happen, the risk of default will be transferred to the insurer. You can learn more about that here.

      Generally, the lesser your deposit is, the higher LMI costs you need to pay as it would mean higher risk for mortgage default.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    I want to leverage the equity in my house to help my kids buy a unit They would have ownership of their property and I would borrow against my home to help fund it. I own my home and the loan amount would be approximately 50% of a professional valuation of my home and I have adequate income to service the loan. Is this possible with this type of loan?

      Hello Brett,

      Thank you for your question.

      It could be done depending on the amount of equity you have in your current property. I would recommend contacting a mortgage broker directly to help you on this matter.

    Hi
    What is the minimum percentage I need to have for a deposit? Are there any lenders that will accept 5 of 10%? Thanks

      June 14, 2016

      Hi Amanda,
      thanks for the question.

      This loan requires a minimum deposit of 5%. Please note that if you have less than a 20% deposit on a full documentation loan, you will be required to pay Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI).

      You can compare more loans which only require a 5% deposit in our guide.

      I hope this helps,
      Marc.

      Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      I can confirm that you do have the option to increase the amount of your existing NAB home loan. To do this, you’ll need to apply for a loan top-up with NAB directly. You can do this by speaking with a NAB home loan specialist over the phone or by visiting your nearest branch.

      Please note that NAB will take into consideration your income, assets, credit history and any existing debt that you have before approving the loan increase.

      Thanks,
      Belinda
