Rate Lock enables you to secure the advertised rate on a Bank of Melbourne Fixed Rate Home Loan, up to 90 days before your new Fixed Rate Home Loan settles or the interest rate period on your current Bank of Melbourne Fixed Rate home loan ends. Once secured this rate is known as the 'locked rate'.1
This way, for a fee, you are protected from the possibility of rising interest rates. If the advertised rate for your chosen fixed rate period falls below your 'locked rate' on your settlement date, you'll be given the lower of the current advertised fixed rate and your 'locked rate'.
