Pre-approval is based on your ability to repay a loan. It means that a lender has reviewed your application and determined that you’re in a good position to be able to pay back a loan for a specified amount.
Yes. You can make additional repayments to your Standard Variable or Back to Basics Home Loan at any time.
If you have a Fixed Rate Home Loan, additional repayments of up to a maximum of $500 in excess of your monthly repayment can be made without incurring extra fees.
Our Home Loan Cashback feature lets you redraw funds that you've paid in advance of your normal scheduled home loan repayments.
You can still redraw this excess money at any time – for school and university expenses, a holiday, renovation, or any other purpose. This feature is available on Standard Variable, Ready Access and Back to Basics Variable home loans.
If you have a standard home loan, the repayments you make will require you to pay off a portion of the principal as well as paying interest charges. An Interest-Only loan, however, will only require you to pay the interest charges but not any of the principal during the interest-only period. It is important to remember that your repayment amount will increase when your interest only period ends and you begin principal and interest repayments.
Deposit KickStart lets owner-occupiers use the equity in the home of a family member towards the purchase of your new owner-occupied home – to help kick start your dream. With Deposit KickStart, you can avoid the need of paying Lenders Mortgage Insurance without the 20% deposit.
To approved applicants only. Exclusions and max loan amounts apply. Fees and charges, including government fees and charges apply. Conditions apply to all products, loan options, discounts and packages and are available from Suncorp-Metway Ltd ABN 66 010 831 722. Australian Credit Licence Number 229882.
No. You won’t be charged for using the mobile lender service and all advice is obligation-free.

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