Handy Tip Pay lump sums off your floating rate home loan and reduce the time it takes to repay it. 4 5

4 Choosing the loan option that suits At Westpac we have a range of flexible loan options, so you can choose just one type, or mix and match to enjoy the benefits of both fixed and floating, or capped rates. A good way to start is with the table below, to give you an overview of all your options. Did You Know? Our home loans have a maximum term of 30 years. But we know a lot can happen in 30 years, and that s why you may be able to take your home loan with you if you move house. Name of Westpac Home Loan Floating Offset Fixed Everyday Floating Type of interest rate Floating rate Floating rate Fixed rate Floating rate What is it? It s for you if: Key Benefits The interest rate varies with the market but you can repay lump sums whenever you like without any extra cost. Your eligible Westpac transaction and savings account balance offsets your home loan so you only pay interest on the difference. The interest rate can go up or down when the market changes and gives you the flexibility to pay off some or all of the loan at anytime. You fix your interest rate at a certain amount and it will stay the same for the fixed rate term, even if interest rates in the market change. That way, your repayments stay the same throughout the fixed rate term. Your home loan and daily transactions are combined in one account and when your income is paid in, it immediately reduces your home loan balance so you could pay less interest you want the flexibility to pay lump sums off your home loan you re comfortable knowing that interest rates could change - you want to reduce the amount of interest you pay - you want to reduce the length of your loan - you want to focus on saving as well as paying off your home loan - you d like to keep your home loan and savings in separate accounts - you re comfortable with a floating rate knowing that interest rates could change you want to set your repayments and know they re not going to change during the fixed rate term you don t think you ll need to make lump sum payments off your loan during the fixed rate term you re happy to have your home loan and transactions in one account you want to save interest on your home loan you pay a floating interest rate that may increase or decrease in line with the market pay off some or all of your loan whenever you like without incurring any additional costs increase your regular repayments at any time without penalty switch some or all of your floating rate loan to a fixed rate at any time - you could save thousands on your interest payments and reduce the length of your home loan - your accounts stay separate, giving you flexibility to access and manage your money to suit your needs - link up to 10 eligible Westpac transaction and savings accounts, including those of your parents or children to help increase your offset benefits - have the flexibility to pay lump sums off your home loan at anytime fix the term of the interest rate you pay from 6 months up to 5 years budget with confidence knowing your repayments will not change for the fixed rate term increase regular repayments up to 20% at any time during the fixed rate term without penalty the benefits of a floating rate, plus: flexible revolving credit helps you save on interest costs Capped Capped rate Your interest rate is capped for a set term, so you ll pay less interest if rates fall, but even if rates do go up, your interest rate won t go higher than the capped rate during the capped rate term. - you want to cap the interest rate you could pay for the next 1 2 years you want to cap the interest rate you could pay for the next 12 months you still want to be able to benefit if interest rates fall you may want to make lump sum payments off your loan you may want to increase your home loan repayments benefit if rates go down during your capped interest rate term never pay more than your capped rate even if rates rise you can pay off some or all of your loan whenever you like without incurring any additional costs you can increase your regular repayments at any time without penalty 6 7

5 About split home loans You have the choice to split your Westpac home loan and combine different interest rate types. You could have two different fixed rate terms, or a mix of floating, fixed and capped rates. Why would you? It lets you choose the benefits you want from your home loan, such as the certainty of a fixed rate term, as well as the flexibility of a floating rate loan. Read on for more benefits. Some of the benefits of splitting your home loan It s smart, because: having a portion on a floating or short-term fixed rate lets you take advantage of low interest rates right now it s flexible you can pay the floating portion off as fast as you like without additional cost it could save you even more on interest (with our Everyday Loan ask us how) It could also bring you peace of mind, because: the greater the fixed rate portion is, the more certainty you will have knowing what your monthly repayments will be you can choose a fixed rate term that s right for you, or even select a combination of fixed rate terms on the one loan the floating portion provides you the flexibility to redraw on your loan, whatever need may arise the floating portion can be changed into a fixed rate term at any stage How can you split your loan? Try it yourself. If you d like to get more hands-on, go to to work out your own home loan scenario online with our handy split home loan calculator. Handy Tip Flick back over to the Home Loan Options page for a table comparing loans styles including fixed, floating, capped and split loans. 8 9

6 How do I make repayments? Interest Only loan Regular payment amount Westpac home loans are designed to be flexible, even down to the way you repay your loan. Generally our home loans are repayment loans, which means you pay off some of the loan and interest with each repayment. That way your loan is paid off within the agreed term. Depending on your loan type, you can increase or reduce your home loan payments depending on what s happening in your life, changing your repayment style to suit you. Repayment options Different loan types offer different benefits and repayment options. Let s take a look. Table loan Regular payment amount An Interest Only loan is where you pay only the interest owing each fortnight or month, but nothing off the principal. These are usually short-term loans (up to 5 years) to help keep payments low while you re building or renovating, or if you need bridging finance while you try to sell another home. You ll need to repay the outstanding loan at the end of this period or get another loan. Reducing (Flat) loan Interest Interest Regular payment amount Principal Interest Principal With a Reducing Flat loan you pay a set amount off the loan regularly plus the interest you owe. So your repayments are a lot higher at the start than later on but this can save you interest because you pay more off the principal earlier on. With a Table loan your regular payments are the same each time (unless interest rates change). At first most of the money goes towards the interest you owe, but as your loan starts to go down more of each payment goes towards the principal. This is the most popular type of home loan because it gives more consistency to your repayments. Revolving Credit loan Loan balance Loan limit Did You Know? Our revolving credit loan is called Everyday Floating. It gives you the most flexibility in your repayments. With a Revolving Credit loan your loan and everyday banking are combined in one account. There are no set repayments but you ll need to make sure your balance stays below the limit at all times

7 Top tips for paying off your home loan faster You could save thousands on your interest repayments and cut years off your home loan: Offset gives you the ability to use the balance of your eligible Westpac transaction and savings accounts, as well as those of your immediate family s to offset against your floating home loan and only pay interest on the difference. Increase the amount you repay each month: it sounds obvious, but the more you repay, the less interest you ll pay on your home loan in the long run Pay half your monthly loan repayment each fortnight: this works out that you make two extra payments per year (compared to when you pay monthly), reducing the overall interest costs you ll pay over the repayment period of your loan Shorten the term of your loan: this means your repayments will increase and you ll pay off your loan faster, with less overall interest payments Pay lump sums off your loan*: if you ve saved up or received a lump sum, using this to reduce the outstanding balance on your home loan could reduce the time it takes to pay off the loan *Remember - break costs may apply if you have a fixed rate loan and you pay back part or all of it during the fixed rate term. Keep your monthly payments the same when the interest rate drops: this means more of each payment will go towards repaying principal (as opposed to interest) Think about a revolving credit account: with a revolving credit facility, when you pay your salary in into your home loan account your loan balance goes down meaning you pay less interest A note about early repayment penalties Paying off your fixed rate home loan early, or breaking the fixed term of your fixed rate home loan in order to get a lower rate can mean that a break cost will be charged. How come? Because in doing so you break the contract you entered into with us when you signed up for your fixed term, and as a result we may have to rearrange funding positions that we have in place in the wholesale interest rate market. Any cost that arises because of this is passed on to you. Sometimes this break cost is also called the prepayment cost. If you want to know the exact costs associated with breaking your fixed rate home loan we can provide you with a quote. Go to to learn more. Need more info?
