- Question 1: I’m on a complete pension and own my home outright. I took a look at the Home Equity Access Scheme and was frightened by the cost of the misleadingly low rates of interest due to the fact that of its application fortnightly. This frequency of ‘term’ (instead of the anticipation of yearly) makes the overall cost similar to payday loan providers. Please inform me I’m incorrect, I would enjoy to be. David
I believe you are incorrect.
The Home Equity Access Scheme, which is run by Services Australia and permits you to access a loan versus your home, has a yearly rates of interest of 3.95 percent per year.
This is an extremely competitive rate for such a loan. With no charges, apart from legal expenses.
Now it’s true that it does substance on a fortnightly basis. Most home loans compute interest daily and intensify them monthly.
Now compare this to payday advance loan which typically have an establishment charge of 20 percent and interest or account charge of about 4 percent each month, i.e. 48 percent per year.
Services Australia has an useful calculator in relation to the Home Equity Access Scheme for those that are interested.
