Subject to meeting our criteria, we may be able to renew the loan at maturity.
This will depend on the amount of the loan, the interest rate, and the term of the loan.
Interest rates vary with market rates and generally change in line with the Official Cash Rate as determined by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, but are not limited solely to this factor. Please contact us for the Trusts current rates.
Q. Can I repay principal at any time without penalty?
