Fixed interest rate
More certainty; easier to budget for
- Interest rate stays the same for the period you choose.
- Makes it easier to manage your finances.
- Competitive rates fixed for periods that range from 6 months to 5 years.
Fixed interest rates are available for all ASB home loans except Orbit and Orbit FastTrack.
During the period of the fixed rate that you choose, your regular loan payments will not change - even if the rates in the world's money markets move up or down.
At the end of the fixed interest rate term, the loan will automatically go on to a variable rate, unless you choose another fixed interest rate term.

Some flexibility to pay off your loan faster
You can make a lump sum payment of a minimum of $10,000 - a penalty fee will be charged, which is called an early repayment adjustment.
You could also increase your regular payments by up to a further $500 per fortnight or $1,000 per month without being charged a penalty fee - provided you maintain the increased payments for the remainder of the fixed rate period.
If you decide to repay in full or make additional lump sum payments, a penalty fee will be charged, which is called an early repayment adjustment.
