Meet with a lending expert

Before meeting with one of our lenders, one of our friendly staff will confirm the paperwork you will need to bring to this meeting. This way we will have the most up-to-date view of your current loan and finances. This could include things like proof of identity, proof of income, and records of current debts.

Your local lender will then be able to help you to decide which product is best suited to you. At Greater Bank, we want to help our customers to own their home sooner.

Complete your application

After this point, all the hard work is left up to us!

We do all the heavy lifting to finalise your switch.

Your lender will complete all the required paperwork and will inform you when your contract is ready for review and signing.

Sign and switch

Your lender will arrange a time for you to review your new loan contract, after which all you have to do is sign on the dotted line.

And you’re now ready to enjoy a greater way of banking – it’s just that simple. You'll see there's a reason why on average, over 70% of our customers are ahead on their home loan repayments. 

Frequently asked questions

Which bank is better for refinancing?

When you're looking to refinance your home loan with another bank, the aim is to get a better deal, either allowing you to pay off your home sooner, or to save you money over the life of the loan.

For this reason, it may be wise to look for a lender who is able to offer you a competitive rate, with the ability to make extra repayments without being penalised. 

It's also prudent to check with your current lender and see if you may be up for any costs associated with switching your loan, before you proceed. 

Is it better to refinance with a local bank?

While there's no guarantee that just because a bank may be local to you, you'll be able to get a better deal, you may be more comfortable dealing with an institution that is closer to your community.

The decision is yours to make, but dealing with a lender that's local may have its advantages - especially if there is a branch network you can easily access when needed.

Who has the lowest fees for refinancing?

Each individual lender has their own fees and charges that may be associated with refinancing your home loan.

It may be worth your while to do your homework when considering making the switch - both in terms of any fees and charges you may have to pay to your existing lender, as well as any costs associated with bringing your home loan on board with your new lender.
