A break cost fee covers our loss when you break your fixed rate term by:
Making additional payments more than the annual additional payment amount allowed
Repaying your account balance in full
Changing to a variable interest rate or a new fixed interest rate
Changing your repayment type, for example, moving to interest only
Borrowing more money on an existing home loan
Discharging your home loan
Fixed rate break costs are determined by multiple factors and as a result they change from day to day. These factors can include:
The length of time remaining until your fixed rate expires
The amount you are paying off your fixed amount
The amount that interest rates have moved since the start of your fixed term.
