Finishing a fixed rate term
If you’ve fixed all or part of your home loan for a period, and that term is about to expire, then it’s a great time to think about your next move with your home loan.
- Do you want to 'refix' the interest rate for another fixed term?
- Or would you rather let it 'roll over' to the current standard variable interest rate?
What do I do when my fixed rate term has finished1?
If you do not request otherwise at the end of a fixed rate period, your loan will automatically revert to the Standard Variable Interest Rate.
However, upon a fixed rate period coming to a close, you also have the option to:
- 'Refix' your interest rate for another fixed rate term, or
- 'Split' your previously fixed portion into both fixed and variable, to more flexibly suit your needs. More information on splitting your loan.
