After the RBA announced another increase to the cash rate, we track the lenders increasing their home loan rates.

Home loan customers are expected to face further increases to their interest rates after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) announced a fifth consecutive cash rate hike in September.

The previous cash rate hikes have seen lenders move in line with the RBA decisions, meaning it's likely that most will be increasing their interest rates by another 50 basis points this month. This means that home loans would be 225 basis points more expensive than they were in April, before the first cash rate increase.

While some lenders make their interest rate announcements within the first few days, others may take a few weeks. We will update the table below as interest rate information comes through.

What to do when your rate goes up

Interest rate rises are a fact of life. But the recent rate increases have been hard and fast. Here are some tips to put yourself in a better position:

  1. Check your current interest rate. You need to start by looking at your current rate and how much your repayments cost each month.
  2. Look out for communication from your lender. When your rate rises your lender should notify you.
  3. Recalculate your loan repayment costs. Check how much the rate rise will cost you with a mortgage repayment calculator.
  4. Consider switching to a better deal. Once you have a clear idea of your interest rate and costs, look for a better deal on the market and consider switching.
