    I recently purchased a car through a St George fixed rate car loan and want to pay it out. How much can they charge me to pay it out immediately?

      Hi James,

      Thanks for reaching out to finder.

      St George will charge you an early repayment fee of:

      -$150 if you repay the full loan amount within 12 months
      -$100 if you repay the full loan amount after 12 months and before your loan term ends.

      Aside from the early repayment fee, you also need to pay a break cost which is an amount equal to St.George’s reasonable estimate of loss resulting from a break in the fixed rate loan term.
      You need to contact St. George Bank directly to know how much the break cost will be.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Charisse

    Hi, are there any loan options for non-permanent residents?

      Hello Rod,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, we do have a page for loans dedicated to non-permanent residents. You may check this page and compare your options.

      Please know that most lenders will need the details of your visa before you are approved to ensure that the terms of the personal loan do not exceed the amount of time left on your visa. You may also need to meet higher minimum income criteria or show extra credentials.

      Hope this helps. Should you have further questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Robyn

      Hi Marcus,

      Thanks for your question.

      The lenders that offer loans to people who are receiving Centrelink payments are listed on this page. I suggest that you read the criteria and get more information from our guide on that page. Once you’ve chosen the loan you wish to apply for, please contact the lender directly to discuss your eligibility and options.

      Cheers,

    Hi,
    Regarding St . George consumer secured car loan…

    I am looking at a 5year 30% balloon car loan.
    My Q is, what are the exit fees and payout fees?
    Will I have to pay additional interest (or all the interest still owning) if I settle the loan early?
    Thanks

      Hi Adrian,

      Thanks for your question.

      Usually, if you are planning on paying out your secured car loan early, you will be charged break costs. This is an amount equal to the bank’s reasonable estimate of its loss due to the breaking of the fixed rate period or early repayment of a fixed rate personal loan. I suggest that you contact St. George directly for the exact computation of the cost.

      Cheers,
      May

    Hi there,

    I’m on a partner visa (subclass 820) which turns into permanent residency in 1 year. I’m also self employed.

    Am I eligible to apply for a $15,000 loan?

    Thanks

      Hi Niall,

      The usual criteria for St.George to consider temporary residents for loans is that you have a minimum of two years left on your visa at the time of application and have proof of taxable income, so in your case, tax returns. As your visa ends and you become a permanent resident at the end of the year you may be eligible, but it would be best to speak to someone at St.George directly before applying.

      If you find you’re not eligible you can consider your other options here.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Heejun,

      You may be able to be approved for a loan if you have minimum of two years left on your visa at the time of application and you have proof of taxable income. You can confirm you eligibility directly with St.George.

      If you find out you’re not eligible you can find some other options on this page.

      Hope this helps,

    Hi there

    I have a $30,000 loan with another bank and I am looking around for a better interest rate. Can you please tell me if I can transfer my loan to you, how much the repayments would be a month, what the fixed interest rate would be and if I can get a secure loan with my car? Its a Hyundai 2011 model?
    Thanks Kate.

      Hi Kate,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      Just to clarify, you’ve come through to finder.com.au not St.George Bank. However, I can provide you with some information.

      The fixed interest rate on this loan is 8.49% p.a. with a comparison rate of 9.39% p.a.. You can use a personal loan repayment calculator like the one on this page to determine your repayments as it depends on the loan term you select. As for your car, it is eligible as long as it will be less than 12 years old at the end of the loan term.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Michelle,

      The main upfront and ongoing fees are listed in the table at the top of this page. However, the early repayment fees are as follows:
      If you pay off your loan within the first 12 months of the term, you’ll be charged $150. If you pay off your loan after the first 12 months and before the end of the loan term, you’ll be charged $100. You should also take into account break costs, which are an amount equal to St.George’s reasonable estimate of its loss due to breaking of the fixed rate period or early repayment of a fixed rate personal loan.

      St.George also has a car insurance product that you can consider taking up. However I’m unsure if this is offered with the loan.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Anne-Marie,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      You may be able to payout your loan early with the St. George Secured Fixed Rate personal loan, but please note that you’ll incur a $150 charge within the first 12 months, or $100 after that.

      If you’d like to arrange this, please speak with a St. George representative to discuss your options.

      Thanks,
      Belinda
