Notes

This product was developed to meet the increasing need of customers for flexibility in their financing arrangements. Bank of Melbourne Portfolio Loan allows borrowers to put the funds they borrow to a number of different uses and to change the use of their funds with minimal effort. The product may be the only credit facility that the customer ever needs. The facility works as follows: - One overall credit limit approved by Bank of Melbourne called the Portfolio Loan Credit Limit. - This Portfolio Loan credit limit can be divided into subaccounts (up to 10), each of which has its own sub-account credit limit. The Portfolio Loan credit limit is the sum of all the sub-account credit limits. - As the customers financial needs change, they may redistribute any available credit limit between sub-accounts eg as they pay down their owner occupier sub-account, they may transfer excess credit limit on this sub-account to their investment sub-account and use the funds to increase their investment holdings. - The customer has the convenience of keeping their transactions separate for budgeting and taxation purposes and the flexibility of changing the purpose of their borrowings whenever they need. - The borrowers must apply for any increase to the Portfolio Loan credit limit and approval will be subject to the Bans prevailing credit criteria. - A Portfolio Loan borrower who operates a business with a trading name may include that trading name in the sub-account title. - Shop online using VISA Debit card and with Verified by Visa. Note: If the customer no longer has any need for a line of credit facility then the sub-accounts can operate as a normal transaction account, where interest is paid on credit balances (ie savings balances). Additional sub-accounts can be closed at the customers request, with the limits redistributed to the remaining sub-accounts. Loan amount: Minimum is $10,000 for the Portfolio Loan ($2,000 for each sub-account). No maximum. Loan term: There is no term over which the loan is to be repaid. However, annual reviews will be conducted. Principal reductions are allowed at any time on variable rate sub-accounts. For sub-accounts at a fixed interest rate, principal reductions of $10,000 are allowed for each 12 month period of the fixed rate period.

  • Cost savings such as fee waivers or special rate discounts.
  • Fees and charges associated with loan options or events that may or may not be used by the borrower, such as early repayment or redraw fees
  • Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) which may be required to secure the loan and can increase the cost of the loan.
  • Government charges such as stamp duty or mortgage registration fees.
  • Fees and charges which aren’t available at the time the comparison rate is provided
