Want to lock it in?
With Westpac you can lock in your fixed or capped rate for up to 60 days when you apply for your loan (once you have your draw down date sorted). It doesn’t cost any extra to take up, and it means any change in the interest rate during that period won’t affect you. Westpac also offers pre-approvals so you'll know what you can afford to spend. A fee may apply to break or change a rate lock agreement.
