Please note that:
If you are applying for a mortgage with low equity (i.e. your deposit is less than 20%), Westpac may charge an additional interest margin of between 0.25% to 1.5% per annum. The actual margin charged will depend on your level of equity.
For existing Home loan customers you can find your current rate in your home loan summary, online bank account or contact Westpac for further information.
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 conditional approvals so you'll have a good idea of what you can afford to spend. A fee may apply to break or change a rate lock agreement.
*Special 2 year fixed rate eligibility criteria: minimum of 20% equity, salary credit to a Westpac transaction account plus a Westpac credit card or a specified Westpac insurance product**, to be approved or issued prior to drawdown date. This special fixed interest rate cannot be used in conjunction with any other Westpac home loan offers or discount packages, including previously negotiated offers, legal fee contributions or the Westpac Choices Home Loan with Airpoints™. This special fixed interest rate does not apply to loans for business purposes.
