Westpac Fixed Rate Home Loan changes.

Effective Tuesday 8 June 2021, Westpac are increasing the 2 and 3 year Fixed Interest Rates for Owner Occupier Loans with Principal & Interest repayments. The decision to increase some of our fixed rates has not been taken lightly. The bank is currently operating in an historically low interest rate environment. In making this decision, we considered the different needs of our stakeholders.

See below for further details of the Fixed Rate Home Loan changes.
