Features

The Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank Fixed Complete Loan offers very low to moderate fixed rates for shorter to longer fixed terms, and you can lock in the rate you’re offered at application with the rate lock feature to ensure the rate won’t rise while you’re waiting for your settlement.

Following your fixed period, your rate will revert to the variable rate offered with the Complete Loan, which is very low.

A fee-free redraw facility is also available for you to access any funds you’ve put towards extra repayments as long as you’re redrawing at least the minimum allowed amount.

If you do get ahead of schedule with your repayments, you could be able to take a repayment holiday for a certain period or you can take a repayment pause if you go on maternity or paternity leave, but these breaks are subject to approval by Victoria Teachers Mutual Bank and you will still be liable for repaying your full loan amount.
