Good bank and service

The bank is great and so is the service however the only down side is that there is no local branch anymore.

Bankwest Mortgage Shredder (Owner Occupier, Principal & Interest) home loan review

Overall rating   6 / 10

Most likely wouldn't use Bankwest again.

I payed my loan back fortnightly and always on time so I found Bank West easy to get along with as far as my mortgage payments went

When we first switched our home loan to Bankwest a couple of years ago, the interest rate they offered us was extremely competitive. However on reviewing our rate against the market earlier this year I was disappointed to find that our Bankwest loan had suddenly become very uncompetitive. Turns out they had not passed through full RBA rate cuts on a couple of occasions, and had also increased our rate by small amounts here and there. We ended up refinancing with another lender to reduce our rate. The final kicker was that one week before our new loan refinance went through we received a letter from Bankwest stating that our interest rate was increasing again! I would be very hesitant to recommend Bankwest after this experience.

Fair rates and great customer service

They have fair rates and great service. There could be more ATMs around. Sometimes we go into the branch and ask for them to increase our payment amount or request something similar, but this can take a few visits for them to do.
