Popular home loan questions

  • How much can I borrow?

    To work out your borrowing capacity, please refer to our handy online calculator.

  • How much deposit do I need?

    Our home loan product range can support deposits from as little as 10% (subject to meeting eligibility criteria) so it’s best to speak with a Lending Specialist about your specific goals.

    It’s also important to factor in additional costs such as stamp duty, legal fees, home insurance, risk fee such as LMI, valuation fee, application fee, rates, renovation fee, etc.

  • What are the fees and charges?

    The fees and charges will vary depending on the home loan product you choose but should be factored in when saving your deposit. For example application fee, legal fees, valuation fees, monthly administration fee, stamp duty and mortgage risk fee (if applicable) are all things to consider before purchasing. 

    Get in touch with one of our Lending Specialists on 1800 178 333 to understand the full list of fees on a First Federal home loan and when these might apply. Alternatively, you can view a high-level summary of our home loan fees for each of our home loan products here.

  • What are the interest rates?

    At First Federal, we offer a range of variable interest rates depending on your individual circumstances and the product you apply for. A decision on your rate will be based on a range of different factors including:

    • The amount you need to borrow against the property value, i.e. Loan-to-Value Ratio (LVR)
    • The size of your deposit
    • Your income structure and source
    • Credit history
    • Assets and liabilities
    • Purpose of the loan – purchase an owner-occupied property or an investment property

  • How long is the application process?

    Your application process can take up to 6 weeks – this is the typical timeframe for a home purchase, however, the process may be quicker depending on how quickly the necessary documentation is provided. Delays in decisions are often caused by incorrect or missing documentation so spend some time making sure you have everything you need ready to go.
