Fixed Rate Home Loans

A fixed rate home loan is a loan that is fixed at a certain rate for a period of time. Generally speaking most banks offer fixed rate home loans over 1,2,3,4 and 5 years. Some lenders offer 7,10 and 15 year fixed rate home loans. With a fixed rate home loan, generally after the fixed rate period ends, your home loan will revert to the standard variable. You can re fix your home loan again, at that stage, but the bank or lender may charge a loan modification fee.

General Fixed Rate Home Loan Fees

  • An application fee may apply to your fixed rate home loan.
  • Your fixed rate home loan may have a monthly fee.
  • Rate Lock Fee - The interest rate you have on a fixed rate home loan is the rate on the settlement day of your loan. Banks offer a rate lock facility, which guarantees the interest rate on the day of application. This fee is generally paid up front, and is around 0.15 to 0.2% of the fixed rate loan amount.
  • If your loan is greater than 80% of the property value, you will pay a once off mortgage insurance fee.
