Expert review

LVRs at or below 80% are eligible for the lowest interest rate. The interest rate will then increase as the LVR increases. You will also be charged Lender’s Mortgage Insurance for borrowing above 80% LVR. You can draw from this loan as much as you would like up to your credit limit, however you must draw a minimum of $100.

You can deposit your salary into the line of credit to reduce any interest you pay and you can operate this as a full transaction account. If after 5 years you are still using your line of credit, it will revert back to a standard principal and interest home loan.
