Pay your home loan off sooner with these benefits

  • Loan term. The maximum term for this loan is 30 years.
  • Loan size. This loan has a minimum borrowing amount of $100,000 up to a maximum of $1,500,000 with a maximum exposure of $2.5 million assessed on a case by case basis. This means you can purchase a range of properties with this loan depending on how much you wish to spend.
  • Loan amount. You can borrow up to 95% of the value of the property including lenders mortgage insurance (LMI), which can be capitalised on the principal amount; however, this is at a higher interest rate. For refinancing and debt consolidation, the maximum LVR is 90%. This means you can purchase a property with as little as 5% deposit. If you don't want to pay LMI or want a more lower interest rate opt for a maximum LVR of 80%.
  • 100% offset account. Save money on interest payments by depositing funds in your offset account. Funds in this account will substitute for a portion of your principal, so if you have an account with $40,000 on a loan of $450,000, you'll only pay interest on $410,000. The account comes with a linked debit MasterCard you can access fee-free at  Westpac group ATMs.
  • Flexible repayments and repayment options. Principal and interest payments are available, as well as interest-only for up to 10 years. Interest-only payments can help you realise tax benefits when combined with a 100% offset account, and can be particularly useful to property investors. You can also choose to make repayments weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on your pay cycle.
  • Split facility. Split your loan up to six times for free. This will see your loan split into both fixed and variable portions, so you can enjoy some of the benefits of both. You can also use a portion as a line of credit facility at no extra cost.
  • Portability. Your State Custodians loan is portable. If you need to move houses, you can move the loan to the new place provided you meet the conditions. This helps you avoid exit fees when leaving your loan, and upfront fees when taking out a new one.
  • Get access to any extra repayments you've made. You can make extra repayments on this home loan whenever you want, and if for any reason you need to access them again, you can through the online redraw facility at a minimum amount of $100.
  • Fixed rate option. You can switch to a fixed rate at no extra cost, allowing you to take advantage of particularly low rates in the market.


  • Portability fee, $499. Should you decide to move properties and keep your loan with you, this fee will be charged.
  • Application fee, $0. This fee is typically charged to cover the cost of setting up the paperwork and your account.
  • Ongoing fees, $0. This fee is usually charged on a monthly or annual basis and covers the cost of maintaining your account, although it's not charged on this loan.
  • Property valuation, $286. This covers the cost of sending an valuer to the security property to determine its value.
  • Title discharge fee is $300. This is payable when you've paid off the loan and State Custodians transfers the land title back to you.
  • Stamp duty, legal fees, registration, title insurance, $Varies. This includes the cost of using a third party conveyancing service, other government charges for processing the paperwork and stamp duty costs. Check with your local Office of State Revenue to see if you're eligible for any concessions.

    does your company do construction to permanent residential loans and if so what are the terms?

      Hi Scott,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that the Breath Easy Offset does not have a construction option.

      State Custodians does offer a separate construction loan and you can choose for it to revert to a permanent residential loan.

      If you click on ‘Go to Site’, you’ll be taken to the official State Custodian’s website where you browse through your options.

    What interest rate are you offering for a 3 to 5 year fixed rate, interest only on $ 730 000 with the property being valued at $ 1000000, and how quick does the process take

    • Staff
      Shirley | November 11, 2013

      Hi Troy,

      Thanks for your comment.

      From the figures that you’ve given, your LVR is less than 80%. Please refer to the row that states ‘<80%’ for your interest rate.

      Approval can take up to a one week but this will depend on how fast you can get in all the required documentation and how soon a valuer can access the property.

      Hope this helps,
