A Fixed Rate Loan provides you with the certainty of knowing what your repayments will be for a fixed period.We offer you a competitive interest rate with the option to fix your home loan for up to five years, meaning your interest rate will remain unchanged for the period for which the interest rate is fixed, irrespective of whether the variable rate increases or decreases.At the end of your fixed term you can choose to fix your loan for another term, select a different product or your loan will automatically convert to our Mortgage Simplifier.

Please note you can fix your loan for a maximum period of 5 years.
