You can change the frequency of your repayments or change the day of month/week they come out. For example, if you started a new job, you could align your repayments to when your salary comes in. Similarly, if you’re able to increase your repayments, even by a small amount, you could reduce the amount of interest you pay and pay off your loan sooner. Note that if you have a fixed ANZ Home Loan, an Early Repayment Recovery may be charged.
If you need to reduce your repayments for a while, talk to ANZ. We may be able to help you restructure your home loan to allow you to make smaller regular repayments by increasing the term of your loan. And when you’re able to, you can increase your repayments again. This may be a good short-term solution to help cover additional expenses, but it will increase the overall interest costs over the life of your loan. Talk to ANZ and we can help you make the decision that is best for you.
