Features of the Newcastle Permanent Real Deal Home Loan

In addition to the special offers on interest and fees, the Real Deal Home Loan also has these following features for you to consider when comparing it to other mortgages:

  • Loan to Value Ratio (LVR). The maximum LVR is 95% of the property value. Keep in mind that for those who borrow over 80% of the property value may have to pay Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI).
  • Loan terms. The maximum loan term for this loan is 30 years.
  • Repayment frequency. You can choose to make your repayments monthly, fortnightly or weekly with the Real Deal Home Loan. You're also permitted to make extra repayments which can help pay your loan off earlier.
  • Repayment types. If you want the option of extra cash on hand, you can choose to make interest-only repayments for up to five years. You may also take a holiday on making repayments altogether if you have enough additional funds from extra repayments to cover them.
  • Partial offset account. A partial offset account is available with this home loan. With a partial offset account, only a portion of the balance in the account will be applied to the principal before interest is calculated, as opposed to a 100% offset account where the entire balance is deducted.
  • Redraw. There's a redraw facility available with no minimum amount available with this loan. However, you are charged a fee when you take advantage of this option.
  • Loan amount. The minimum amount you can borrow with this loan is $50,000.
  • Package deal available. You can combine this Newcastle Permanent home loan with other products to create a package that best suits your circumstances.


Fees you can avoid

  • Ongoing fee. There is no monthly or yearly charge to the home loan for account-keeping.
  • Redraw fees. You will be charged a fee if you redraw any extra repayments that you have made towards the value of the loan. This is $10 per redraw processed online, or $35 for redraws conducted at a Newcastle Permanent Branch.

Fees you can’t avoid

  • Discharge settlement fee. This will apply only if you need Newcastle Permanent to produce the title deed when the loan is paid in full.
