Things to consider about the Suncorp Bank Back to Basics Home Loan

This is a full doc home loan, which means you need to submit the full range of documents to support your income and you cannot apply for it if you're self-employed. It is available for personal use or to make investments that will increase your assets.

Features of the Suncorp Bank Back to Basics Home Loan

  • Loan to value ratio (LVR). This loan allows up to 95% of the value of the secured property for most borrowers. Additional fees such as Lender’s Mortgage Insurance (LMI) may apply.
  • Loan terms. You have the option of paying off your loan in as little as 8 years, or spreading it out to as many as 30 years.
  • Repayment frequency. You can make your repayments weekly, fortnightly or monthly to suit your lifestyle. These can be made by direct withdrawal from a Suncorp transaction account, online, over the phone or inside a bank branch.
  • Repayment types. You have the option of making interest-only repayments for a maximum of five years, or you can just make regular interest and principal payments. You can also make unlimited extra repayments.
  • Redraw. The Back to Basics Home Loan gives you the ability to redraw any additional repayments you have made into your loan if you are approved for Suncorp Bank cashback. Redraws are limited to once a month and the minimum you may withdraw is $1,000.


Fees you can avoid

  • Ongoing fees: $0. There are no monthly fees to pay with this loan.
  • Lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI). LMI will only be necessary if your deposit is less than 20% of the property value. The amount of this insurance varies and can be more expensive the more your borrow and the smaller your deposit is.
  • Valuation fee: $0. Suncorp Bank will pay for the valuation of the secured property one time. Any additional valuations will be paid for by the borrower.

Fees you can’t avoid

  • Establishment fee. $600. For full doc borrowers the establishment fee is $600, although this is waived if you borrow more than $150,000. If your LVR is greater than 90%, the establishment fee is $990.
