Expert review

The Home Package Plus allows you to save on your fixed rate home loan by discounting the fixed interest rate and waiving many of the fees associated with home loan packages.

Investors and owner occupiers are both eligible for the Home Package Plus when looking to buy a residential property. However, the Home Package Plus is not available for individuals who need a low-doc loan or for pre-approved home loans.

      Hi Jenny,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      We have a page about home loans for discharged bankrupts, which you might find useful. On this page, you can enquire with one of the lenders in the table to see whether you’d be eligible for one of their home loans.

      Keep in mind that you may want to opt for a basic or low-doc home loan that has minimal fees and documentation requirements. Unfortunately, however, you may be charged with a higher rate of interest due to your bankruptcy.

      It’s advised that you speak to a mortgage broker as they can leverage their panel of lenders, including specialist or non-bank lenders, that may have more lenient lending criteria. A broker may be able to help you understand your borrowing power.

      All the best,
      Belinda
