Refinancing FAQs Picture

What is refinancing?

Refinancing your loan, for example your home loan, investment loan or commercial mortgage, is the process of changing your property loan and/or lender. Refinancing allows you to select a new loan product that better suits your current circumstances and needs. You may also be able to take advantage of additional benefits provided by your current lender or another lender.

How does refinancing work?

When you take out a new loan, you use some or all of the funds to pay out your existing loan. The new loan could be with a new lender or your existing one. If you move to a new lender, that lender will take care of paying out your existing loan.
