Credit Report

How Does Your Credit Report Affect Your Finances?

Oct 17, 2018

Before a Lender can grant you a loan (or sell you a product on credit), they must ensure that you have the ability to pay the loan back at a later date. If you do not have the capacity to pay the loan back, the credit provider will not be able to approve the loan you are requesting.

Your credit report provides lenders a summary of your credit history. How good you are as a borrower. It helps them assess the risk of lending to you.

Home Loan Market Update – September 2018

Sep 24, 2018

The investment and home loan market is in a state of flux. This article will run you through the latest news on the home loan as at September 2018.

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been a number of announcements that lenders will be increasing their home loan rates without waiting for the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).

This is due to the fact that the RBA’s official cash rate is still sitting at 1.50%. Please keep in mind, this is the lowest it has ever been.

The rate increases are mainly on variable rate home loans at this stage. However, we expect to see an increase in all mortgage rates in general as Lender’s cost of funding is starting to rise on the back of movements in the global economy.

Changes To Interest Only Term Extensions

Sep 20, 2018

Changes to lending regulations are forcing banks to change the way they assess requests to switch or extend Interest Only repayment periods. These changes effect customers who want to extend Interest Only repayment periods, as well as those wanting to switch from Principal and Interest to Interest Only repayments.

In the past, CBA customers would simply call the bank and request to switch to Interest Only repayments over the phone. Customers were also able to change their existing loan from P&I to IO over the phone. Other banks applied a very similar process when customers requested to switch to or extend Interest Only terms.
