Home loan rates for new loans are set based on the initial LVR and won’t change during the life of the loan as the LVR changes.

Rate Lock: Bank of Melbourne will apply the fixed rate available at the loan settlement date or the date the fixed rate term commences, unless you lock a fixed rate in on your loan using our Rate Lock feature. The fixed rate lock-in fee is 0.15% of your loan amount or $500, whichever is higher, capped at $1000 for loans up to $2M. For loans above $2M, the fixed rate lock-in fee is 0.15% of your loan amount. At the end of your fixed rate term, the interest rate will convert to our standard variable interest rate, unless a new fixed rate term’s selected and then the fixed rate is determined on the day the fixed term ends.
