What is a redraw facility?

Redraw allows you to withdraw the additional payments you’ve made on your home loan. A free redraw facility is a standard feature on most Great Southern Bank Home Loans.

If you're ahead on your home loan repayments and need some extra cash, you can access these funds quickly and easily, no questions asked. You can redraw your additional repayments in online banking at your local branch or by calling us on 133 282.

Find out more about redraw here.

Can I leave my fixed rate early?

An Early Payout Cost may apply if the loan is terminated during the fixed rate period. A partial Early Payout Cost may apply if a reduction to the principal is requested during the fixed rate period.

Click here to view our Early Payout Cost Factsheet.

What happens when my fixed rate expires?

At the end of the fixed rate term, your home loan will roll on to the variable rate home loan specified in your contract. To make life easier, we’ll send you a reminder eight weeks before your fixed rate expires. The reminder will include the details of the variable loan you’ll roll on to, plus alternative options if you wish to choose a different home loan.

We have a dedicated fixed rate expiry page to help you understand what to expect and give you the tools and information to make the right decision for you.

Applying for pre-approval allows you to know the maximum amount you can borrow while you look for a property.

Pre-approval means that a lender has agreed to lend you an amount of money in-principle, but the loan hasn't been proceeded to full or final approval.

While pre-approval is not a fully approved loan it can help you narrow your search, negotiate, and make an offer with certainty and confidence.
