Access Equity (Line of Credit) Home Loan
A complete money management solution.
Not only does an Access Equity Home Loan fund the purchase of your new home, but you can use it to buy things like shares, or for everyday expenses, just like you would a transaction account or credit card.
Suncorp Bank Access Equity - An Overview
Loan type: Variable Rate Loan
An Access Equity facility can be used for either personal or investment purposes.
How it works
You can use a line of credit like a credit card or transaction account. Income such as your salary can be paid into your home loan, and you can then use this line of credit up to your approved credit limit for everyday expenses, or to invest in other assets. You decide how often and how much to pay off your loan, so long as you stay within your credit limit.
An example of how Access Equity facility works
If your home is worth $320,000 and you still owe $210,000, you could apply for an access equity facility to the value of $288,000 ($320,000 x 90%). You can then split your access equity facility. For example, you can have $210,000 for personal use (what you still owe on your home) and have a separate account for $78,000, which you can use for investing or other purposes (this separates your interest payments for tax purposes (where applicable, you should obtain your own tax advice)). Note: Lenders Mortgage Insurance may apply.
Access Equity ($320,000 x 90%)
Less the amount you still owe
Money available for investing or to use as you please
Based on the assumption that the customer wishes to access up to 90% of the value of the property.
There’s no minimum monthly repayment, which means you can decide how often and how much to pay off your loan, provided your total loan balance stays within your approved credit limit.
Enjoy easy access to your funds
You’ll have immediate access to cash you’ve paid into your Line of Credit at any Suncorp Bank and Bendigo ATM, in a branch or via EFTPOS, BPAY®, Visa Debit card or Phone, Internet and Mobile Phone Banking.
Choose to 'split' your loan
Get the best of both worlds by choosing to ‘lock in’ a portion of your borrowings on a fixed interest rate, with the remaining portion on a standard variable interest rate.
The fixed rate portion gives you the security of knowing how much your repayments will be, as well as limiting your exposure to rate rises. The variable rate portion lets you make unlimited additional repayments while giving you the flexibility to redraw them at any time+. It’s a solution that gives you the benefits of both loan types.
