Provided the minimum repayments are met, your loan repayments can be altered at any time to suit your needs. You are encouraged to increase your repayments to whatever you can afford to improve the equity position in your home. Paying more than your minimum repayment amount puts you in an ‘advance position’. Read more about 3 reasons to aim for an advance position on our blog.
To change your repayments, please download the Direct Debit form and fax to 9338 3101 or post to PO BOX 6679, East Perth, Western Australia 6892.
