    Home Loan Refinancing FAQ’s

    What is a home loan refinance?

    A home loan refinance is the process of taking out a new home loan that pays out your current loan.

    Do I need to change lenders to refinance ?

    No, you do not need to change lenders to refinance. Your current lender may simply have a different loan product that better suits your needs or you may refinance the same loan product so you can withdraw some of the equity in your home.

    Why do people get a home loan refinance?

    There are several different reasons to refinance a home loan.

    • Interest rates are constantly changing and lenders are continually changing the offerings of their loan products to get your business. A home loan refinance to a new loan with a lower interest rate could save you a significant amount of money over the life of your loan.
    •  All home loans come with different terms and conditions. As your needs change, you may want a loan that has more flexible terms and conditions, for example,  the ability to make interest only repayments or to make additional payments.
    •  As the value of your home increases over the years, you gain equity in your property. Equity is the difference between what your home is worth and how much you owe on it. A home loan refinance can give you the opportunity to release some of this equity to pay for other things like renovations, a holiday, a car, an investment property or just to free up some spare cash.
    • As interest rates fluctuate, you may want to change your loan from a variable rate to a fixed rate to give you certainty of repayments or low in a low interest rate. If your current loan product does not allow you to make this change, you can do it by refinancing.
    •  A home loan refinance can give you the opportunity to consolidate your debts. If you are paying high interest rates on credit card bills or personal loans, you may be able to refinance your home loan to pay out these debts.
    What does it cost to refinance a home loan?

    If you are refinancing with a different lender, in most cases, you will be charged an exit fee from your current lender, and potentially an application fee with the new lender. You will also have to pay mortgage discharge and registration fees. Generally the sum of these costs is between $700 to $1,000, all of which can be included in the new loan refinance amount so you do not have any out of pocket expence. An Assured Lending Mortgage broker will ensure that the money you save on a lower interest rate will out way these initial costs to refinance.
