you get access to surplus home loan funds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if you have a transactional account with south-africa. alternatively, access to funds is available during business hours. surplus funds include any prepayments, as well as a percentage of capital you have already repaid on your home loan up to a pre-determined limit.
this enables you to register a bond greater than the home loan amount you require, creating an extra amount that may be accessed at a later stage.
withdraw any additional money that you have paid into your home loan account.
increase your monthly instalment and save on interest. this also allows for you to pay off your home in a shorter period of time.
this gives you access to the funds that make up the difference between your original registered home loan and the outstanding balance.
obtain funds by registering an additional amount over and above your original registered bond amount.
interest rate options

this is the standard interest rate option. the interest rate varies in line with current interest rate movements.
ba linked rate
the interest rate is directly linked to the publicly quoted three-month safex ba rate (bankers acceptance rate) and offers a highly competitive means of financing your home loan.
home loan insurance
home owner’s cover
this insures your house and any structural improvements to the property. this cover is compulsory with any home loan.
home loan protection plan
this plan provides peace of mind in the unforeseen events of death, temporary and permanent disability and retrenchment.
