Removing a Borrower from the loan.
Reducing your Interest Rate and consequently your interest charges over the life of the loan..
Improve your monthly cash flow.
Bundle all of your loans in to one. easy to manage repayment.
Loan Terms up to 7 years.
Reducing the overall repayments to satsify the requirements of getting a home loan.
To release an asset as security over the existing loan.
Anyone is eligible as long as they meet the Lenders minimum requirements.
There must be a financial benefit in refinancing a loan. This can be an interest charge saving over the remaining term of the loan, a debt consolidaiton that forms part of an overall debt reduction strategy and a reduction in repayments to help with a home loan application. Lenders are careful when assessing the financial benefit, to ensure it does not put the borrower in an inferior position. For example, if the existing loan has 3 years remaining and a total amount payable of $ 15,000.00. The new loan over the same term can not have a higher amount payable. If it did, then there is no financial benefit.
