Changes to Variable home loan interest rates FAQ

Why is TMCU increasing its home loan variable interest rates when the RBA has not changed the cash rate?

Transport Mutual operates in a highly competitive market however has not increased the variable home loan rate for more than 6 years.  This decision was made following careful consideration, due to the increased cost of funds. Our fixed rate home loans remain unchanged

How does this change impact me and my repayments?

If you have a variable home loan with us, your interest rate will increase by 0.10%p.a.  For many borrowers, there may be no impact as they have chosen to keep their repayments high over this extended low interest rate period.

Before making any changes to your repayments, we’ll send you a letter telling you what your new repayments will be, and the effective date of that change. 

Please review your current direct credit deposits to your account to ensure they are sufficient to cover any required loan repayment increase and any other payment requirements you may have.  

If you pay by any other method, please adjust your payments accordingly.

If you have an amount available for redraw on your loan and you do not wish to increase your loan repayments to the new minimum amount please contact us to discuss your options.

Any additional repayments will continue unless you wish to make other arrangements.
