    Got questions?

    What do I need to know before applying?

    All you need to begin your application online are details of your income, current credit obligations (like personal loans and car loans), available credit limits (from credit cards, store cards and interest fee accounts) and the amount you are looking to borrow.

    Can I apply for a Homestar home loan face-to-face with a lending specialist?

    In general, we do not offer face-to-face appointments because this would significantly add to the cost of providing you with your loan. We would need to pass this cost on to you in the form of higher interest rates or fees – which we really do not want to do! Our Lending Specialists use great loan processing technology so that we can do all the things that you would typically expect in a face-to-face loan application process by phone- and we can do it in a fraction of the time that a face-to- face meeting would take.

    What is Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)?

    Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) is insurance that protects the lender in the event the borrower defaults and the security property is sold and the funds from the proceeds of the sale are not enough to discharge the loan. The LMI then pays the Lender the shortfall.  The rights to recover the shortfall from all of the parties on the loan (borrowers) are then transferred across to the LMI who will pursue the shortfall. The cost of LMI insurance is a one off payment at the start of the loan. It is usually added to the loan amount and should not be confused with Building Insurance or Income Protection Insurance

    What is a Comparison Rate?

    A comparison rate is a legislated calculation which gives consumers an idea of the actual cost of the loan, as it includes the interest rate and the standard fees applicable to that loan. It avoids consumers being misled by lenders advertising a lower interest rate, but charging high fees to compensate for the low rate.
