Ongoing Costs

Ongoing Costs

Interest – this is an most important cost to consider in your mortgage purchase decision. The interest rates offered by different lenders are highly competitive and may vary considerably. Different rates may apply depending on the product that you select and even a small difference may enable you to save substantial amounts of money over the life of the loan.

Account keeping fees – Some lenders charge a fee, usually monthly, to operate your loan account.

Annual facility fee – Some lenders charge an annual fee for your loan account, or for a package of different financial products.

Transaction fees – Some lenders charge fees when you transact via your loan account. These fees might be to withdraw extra money (for example, redraw fees or EFTPOS/BPay transactions), or to pay extra money into your loan account.

Penalty charges – Many lenders impose penalties under certain circumstances. These include fees for missing a scheduled loan repayment and making an inward payment that is dishonoured. Penalty interest rates generally apply if you have missed scheduled repayments.
