Home Loan Fees

We've done our best to minimise or eliminate as many of the fees as possible, especially upfront and ongoing fees. If you are a standard applicant, when establishing your loan, you will pay:

  • No application fees
  • No valuation fee
  • No legal fee
  • No settlement fee
  • No redraw fee
  • No ongoing fee
A standard application is for individual borrowers (ie, not company or trust borrowers) with no guarantors.
The loan is to be used to purchase a single property or to refinance a single mortgage with a standard valuation fee. Settlement to occur in a capital city CBD with allowance for 2 bank cheques.

The full schedule is below. Government fees and charges are still payable (and LMI if applicable). You might also like to see our education centre for more information.

Other Fees
Non proceeding fee When MyRate values your house, a standard valuation from an accredited valuer costs us about $235. If you become a MyRate customer, we are very happy to absorb this cost (if the valuation is "non standard", excess valuation fees may apply). However if, after we've done the valuation, you do not become a customer (you decide not to proceed or final credit requirements aren't met) we will need to recoup the cost (usually $235 but may be more in some cases). Additional fees of approx $175 may apply if contracts have already been prepared.

If your withdrawal is less than $200 from an ATM, the direct ATM fee (whatever amount, depending on the ATM) will not be refunded.
