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 $2,000,000 with a maximum exposure of $2.5 million assessed on a case by case basis.
  • Loan amount. You can borrow a maximum of 80% of the property's value without paying lenders mortgage insurance (LMI).You can borrow up to 95% of the value of the property if you pay LMI, which can be capitalised on the principal amount; however, this will attract a higher interest rate. For refinancing and debt consolidation, the maximum LVR is 90%.
  • 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. You can also make extra repayments without penalty.
  • 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 property 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 access any additional repayments you've made through the online redraw facility. The minimum redraw amount is $100.
  • Fixed rate option. You can switch to a fixed rate at no extra cost.

Fees

  • 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.
  • Property valuation, $286. This covers the cost of sending a 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.

    I enquire about a 25 year loan, based on advertised 3.64.

    I wish to confirm that this variable rate is based on the term of the loan, pending any governmental financial changes that may occur and will not change shortly after taking the loan.
    What are the total real fees inclusive of any stamp, registration, legal fees etc….?
    Additionally do I read the terms correctly that there is no termination of loan fee incurred, just a titles handover and nothing else

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

      ShirleyMarch 20, 2015Staff

      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.

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    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
      ShirleyNovember 11, 2013Staff

      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,
      Shirley
