Mozo Review   Newcastle Permanent Fixed Rate Home Loan Review

Last updated: 22 March 2018.

What's hot:
  • Competitive fixed rates across a variety of terms

  • 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Award - Home Lender of the Year

  • Repayment flexibility either weekly, fortnightly or monthly

  • Fixed terms up to 10 years

What's not:
  • No redraw

Mozo snapshot:

Fixed rate home loans are hot and Newcastle Permanent has some of the hottest value for borrowers - so hot that it provides fixed terms up to 10 years and you can borrow up to 95% of the property's value, plus some handy flexibility when it comes to repayments. The Fixed Rate Home Loan also took out a 2018 Mozo Experts Choice Award for best Fixed Home Loan on top of the overall Home Lender of the Year Award. 

Key features:

The Newcastle Permanent Fixed Rate Home loan is available for 1 up to 10 years, though the most competitive rates are for its 1 - 3 year terms with principal & interest repayments where the rates are 3.79% for 1 year, 3.89% for 2 years, while 3 year fixed rate is 3.94%. For 4 and 5 year terms you are looking at a rate of 4.19%.

You can borrow up to 95% of the property value but anything over 80% will require lender's mortgage insurance. This is a loan that everyone can apply for whether you are a first time buyer or looking to purchase a multimillion dollar property but there is a maximum loan term of 30 years. 

The loan establishment fee of $595 is currently waived for owner occupier loans and there are no ongoing account keeping fees so you can be sure that all of your hard earned money will go towards paying down your home loan and not going towards unnecessary fees.

Tailor your repayments to suit you with weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment options available.

You can make extra repayments or lump sum repayments with the Fixed Rate Home Loan but they are capped at $25,000 p.a. during the fixed rate period. If you have made additional repayments you can take a "repayment holiday" so long as the extra repayments will cover the regular required repayments.

Who it's good for:

Borrowers looking for peace of mind knowing that their interest rate or repayments aren't going to change for a set term.

Any catches?

No, you don't have to live in Newcastle to be able to take advantage of Newcastle Permanent's great fixed rates. You can do you banking online or over the phone. 

While you can make additional repayments just keep in mind that as with most fixed rate home loans there isn't a redraw facility and if you pay out the loan early you could be up for break costs.

    The staff at Newcastle Permanent have been exceptionally helpful from a pre approved loan to the loan we received for the purchase of our property. They have assisted us through the entire process of our purchase and have been available to answer any queries that we have had at all times of the day and evenings. We have banked with them for over 30 years and will continue to do so.

    This building society is excellent. The staff in my local branch are always helpful and give me all information I need to make informed decisions about their products. When I first went for my home loan they explained interest rates, fixed and variable. All extras that we weren't aware of. When I went to renew the fixed rate after my first one was finished I asked how to go about getting the best rates. They explained what to do and what I needed to get if I wanted them to match any rate I found. So thanks to their assistance I found a rate that was slightly better and they improved on that deal. Needless to say with that kind of assistance and personal service I went with their best offer. I am not a financial whiz but do like to get the best deal possible. Thanks to the staff at Newcastle Permanent I get friendly, helpful service and the best available rate. I don't need bells and whistles but they do have deals with extras if that is what you are after. Trust me the staff there will make sure you are well informed and work out what you are after and make sure you get the best for what you want.
