Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)

If you are borrowing more than 80% of the value of the property, you will be required to pay Lenders Mortgage Insurance. This is a one-off payment and can be financed into the loan.

Lenders Mortgage Insurance protects Suncorp Bank against loss in the event of a forced sale of a mortgage property. It does not insure you but may make it possible for you to buy a home with a smaller deposit. You will still be responsible for all amounts owing in relation to your loan.

Interest-only

Interest only repayments subject to credit approval. Before choosing an interest-only repayment option, it’s important you understand the potential risks associated with this product feature. As the name suggests, interest-only repayments means you’ll repay the interest charges but you are not required to repay the principal during the interest-only period. Since repayments to reduce the principal are not being made during the interest-only period, the full loan amount will still be due at the end of the interest-only period. You will pay more in interest than if you made principal and interest repayments.

Split your loan

You can choose to split your loan and fix a portion of your borrowings at a fixed interest rate for greater budgeting certainty. At expiry all fixed rate loans revert to the Standard Variable rate and may differ to the the Back to Basics variable rate

Add Loan

Allows you to increase the value of your existing home loan, useful for purposes like renovations subject to credit criteria

Variable Rate

Comparison Rate
