CUA Standard Variable Loan

Features

The CUA Standard Variable Loan offers the ability to manage your mortgage through features such as a 100 per cent offset account. Borrowers can use the 100 per cent offset account to reduce the amount of interest they pay over the life of the loan.

The flexibility of repayment schedule also allows borrowers to reduce their debt faster by making additional repayments, without incurring penalties.

Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly to suit your needs, with the additional bonus of being able to choose principal and interest, or interest only repayments. A redraw facility ensures that borrowers can access these extra repayments should they need cash for future requirements.

For borrowers who want to reduce the amount of their monthly repayments, or for investors, there is also the possibility of making interest only repayments for a certain period. These repayments can only be made monthly.

Who is the CUA Standard Variable Loan good for?

The CUA Standard Variable Loan is good for borrowers looking for a fully featured variable loan. From a 100 per cent offset account to a redraw facility and the ability to define your own repayment schedule, this loan comes with many options.

The flexibility provided by this loan may appeal to those who like to plan ahead. Whether it is using extra repayments and the offset account to pay off the mortgage sooner, or using the redraw facility to finance renovations or other projects.
