Important points about the RAMS Fixed Rate Home Loan

This loan is available for owner occupiers or investors and can be paid either with principal and interest or interest-only repayments. It can be used to purchase an already established home or to fund the construction of a new property with a minimum loan amount of $15,000.

Key features of RAMS Fixed Rate Home Loan

  • Maximum Loan-to-Value Ratio. You can borrow up to 80% of the purchase price of the property without having to take out Lenders Mortgage Insurance. RAMS can offer loans of up to 95% of the purchase price of the property provided you satisfy the qualifying criteria. If you're borrowing over 85% of the purchase price of the property you'll need evidence of 5% genuine savings.
  • Lender's Mortgage Insurance or RAMS Risk Fee. In some cases add the cost of lenders mortgage insurance, or the 'RAMS Risk Fee' as they call it, into the total cost of your loan, meaning they can offer loans of up to 98.5% of the purchase price of the property on a full documentation loan if it's owner occupied and a principal and interest loan. Other loan types and repayment types have different maximum LVR's when this is capitalised will apply.
  • A range of fixed terms available. RAMS allows you to choose a fixed rate term that is right for your individual needs. Terms are available for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 years. Interest is calculated daily on the outstanding balance, so this means the interest payment may fluctuate in some months. For example, there will be 31 days interest due some months, but only 30 days interest due in others.
  • Fixed Rate Lock. You can lock in the advertised interest rate at the time of application for a fee of 0.15% of the credit limit available and is applicable for up to 90 days from the date of the application being received by RAMS Origination.
  • Splitting your fixed loan. RAMS will allow you to split your mortgage. You can choose to leave a portion of your home loan on a variable rate and fix the remaining portion. The minimum amount of any split you choose to make in your loan needs to be a minimum of $15,000.
  • Flexible repayment options. Borrowers who choose the principal and interest option on their home loan have plenty of flexible repayment options. Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Alternatively, you can opt to pay interest only repayments but will need to have more deposit with the maximum LVR on interest-only loans being 90% with or without LMI or RAMS Risk Fee capitalised.
  • Redraw Facility. If you have paid extra amounts into your home loan account and suddenly find you need that extra cash back again, you are able to redraw from your home loan. The minimum redraw amount allowed is $1,000.
  • Extra Repayments. RAMS will allow you to pay up to $25,000 extra off your home loan throughout the fixed rate period. If you do end up contributing more extra payments into your mortgage throughout the fixed term, penalty fees may apply.
  • Value Advantage Package. This loan can be taken out in Value Advantage Package form. This entitles you to an interest rate discount, but it comes with a $375 annual service fee.

      Hi Iqbal,

      Thank you for your question.

      Unfortunately, RAMS Fixed Rate Home Loan is only available to Australian residents. I’m afraid you might need to contact a lender or mortgage broker in Indonesia so you’ll be able to find a home loan facility for you.

      I’m sorry, I couldn’t be of more help.

    I’m thinking of getting a home loan again, but we are ‘start overs’ or ‘start again’ buyers. Had a few years of bad luck (husband unemployed for nearly 3 years – he’s in a dying trade). But we are back on track, but finding it difficult to save while paying rent at the same time. I have an excellent credit rating, and a great ongoing job which I have been in for 4 years. Could we qualify for 95% home loan?

      Hi Melissa,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      Lenders have different eligibility criteria for home loans but generally they will assess your ability to service the loan by reviewing your income and any existing debts or liabilities, as well as your ability to provide proof of genuine savings to complete the deposit, – among other factors.

      On this page you can compare a range of competitive home loans to find one that’s right for you
      and here you can use our borrowing capacity calculator to estimate how much you can afford to borrow.

      Please note that if you borrow more than 80% of the property price (i.e. LVR of > 80%), you’ll need to pay Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI). It’s generally advisable that you borrow an LVR of 80% or less to avoid this cost.

      Thanks,
      Belinda
