Our fees

Lending fees

These fees may be charged in connection with your loan contract.

Fee When payable Amount
Establishment fee Payable when a loan is made. The level of fee will depend on the complexity of the documentation required to establish the loan. Commercial loans involving a number of entities will be more expensive than a conventional home loan. From $350 to $2,000
PPSR fee Payable when a loan is made which involves us registering our financial interest on the Personal Properties Securities Register (PPSR). $50
Prepayment fee

If your loan or any part thereof is subject to a fixed rate of interest and is repaid prior to due date, either in part or in full, then we reserve the right to charge an early repayment fee.

Such a fee is calculated as follows, either:

A) The cost to WBS as determined by its interest rate swap counterparty: or

B) The amount prepaid multiplied by the difference between the 90 day bank bill rate on the date of prepayment and the rate applying to your loan on the same date, divided by 100 and then multiplied by the number of days your loan had to go before the fixed rate applying to it expired.

Should either of the above result in a charge of $200 or less, no charge will be made. The above formula is NOT the formula prescribed in the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Regulations 2004 or the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Amendment Regulations 2004.

Variable
Variation fee Payable when we agree to change the structure of your loan. $250
