Refinance Loan Service

How Does Refinancing Work?

how does refinancing work

Often, clients are hesitant to refinance as they are worried that the process will be just as intense as getting the loan in the first place. This isn’t the case!

Once you find a mortgage broker in Launceston or locally in Hobart that suits your needs all you need to do is provide the requested information, and select a lender that your broker has proposed (we generally give our clients 3-5 different options). The broker will submit your application and communicate with you and your lender.

On settlement, your new lender will pay your old lender.

Is There Anything I Should Look Out For When Refinancing?

Approval Procedure icon

Approval Procedure

Your credit score may have decreased from late/missed repayments. You may have a high debt-to-income ratio, your property may have devalued, or you may have had a change in income. All these factors can have an impact on you being approved with a new lender.

Cost of refinancing icon

Cost of refinancing

There can be hidden costs when breaking contact with a lender, it is important to understand these before you go ahead with refinancing to avoid finding out later down the track and having to fork out additional funds. You can find these costs in your loan contract. There are several ways to reduce the costs involved including adding the fees and charges on top of your loan.  

Interest Rates icon

Interest Rates

Often low interest rates can be reflected with high fees and charges throughout the lifetime of the loan costing you more overall.
