Why choose a Relocation Loan?

Remove the stress of timing the purchase or construction of your new home

Live in your existing home
For relocation loans to be used for building a new property, you can live in your existing home while your new home is being built.
Package and save
With a Bank of Melbourne Advantage Package you could get discounted interest rates and fees when you package your home loan, credit card and transaction account1.
Full interest offset
We have a range of interest offset facilities available, depending on the product chosen for the end loan. You could save interest by offsetting the funds in your linked transaction account against the balance of your loan.

How does it work?

If you're buying a new home, a relocation

loan could help you pay for the deposit, stamp duty and removalist costs on a new property (as well as the purchase price on settlement). You have 6 months after you receiving any funds to sell your current home.

If you're building a new home, you can also

use a relocation loan, living in your current home until construction is complete. You have 6 months after your first advance to build your new home, and then another 6 months to sell the existing home.2

Choose from 2 options...

Option 1.

Standalone Relocation loan

You repay the loan in full when you sell your current home.
 

Repayments

No repayments are needed until you sell your home, at which point you repay the Relocation Loan in full. The balance you pay off will include interest, which is capitalised into the loan during the loan term.

Although not required, you can make additional lump sum payments at any time.

Option 2.

Relocation loan combined with a new loan

You partially pay off the loan when you sell your current home, then choose from a range of Bank of Melbourne home loans for the remaining balance.
 

Repayments

No repayments are needed until you sell your home, at which point the Relocation loan is partially paid off by the proceeds from the sale of your existing home. You will then begin to make repayments on the remaining balance.

You can make additional payments at any time.
