Home Loan Key Facts Sheets are part of the Australian Government’s banking reforms effective 1 January 2012.
The Key Facts Sheet outlines loan information in a standardised format used by all financial institutions, therefore allowing you to compare CUA home loan products against those available from competitor institutions.
The Key Facts Sheet highlights important information, such as the total amount to be paid back over the life of a loan, and what the expected repayment is for every dollar borrowed.
A Key Facts Sheet is only applicable when the loan will be repaid by principal and interest repayments for the full term and the purpose of the loan is to purchase residential property or refinance a loan that was wholly or predominantly to purchase residential property.
Results are based on a single, full time PAYG income with no dependants. Any upfront costs that may be associated with the loan are capitalised in the loan amount. The results from this calculator should be used as an indication only. Results do not represent either quotes or pre-qualifications for a loan. The actual amount you can borrow may vary depending on factors including your verifiable net income, other debts or liabilities you have and the number of dependents you have. Lending is to approved applicants only and all lending is subject to a detailed credit assessment.
Fees and charges are payable. The calculations do not take into account fees, charges or other amounts that may be charged to your loan (such as establishment or monthly service fees or stamp duty). If you are borrowing more than 80% of the value of the property, Lenders Mortgage Insurance may apply. Any of these additional amounts will increase repayments under the loan.
Repayment is for principal and interest and is indicative only based on the stated information. Changes in interest rates, repayment frequency and loan term will affect the repayment amount.
Expense Details and Default Values The calculator initially assumes that the borrower has a minimum set of annual expenses of $17,004. Maximum percentage of income available - currently set at 100% of income
All months are assumed to be equal. In reality, many loans accrue on a daily basis this can lead to varying interest in different months.
Number of Weeks & Fortnights in a Year
One year is assumed to contain exactly 52 weeks or 26 fortnights. Thus the assumption is for a 364 day year.
The calculator uses the unrounded payment to derive the amount of interest accrued over the full term of the deposit, however, institutions round repayments to the nearest cent.
The calculations provided are estimates only and based upon the information entered into the calculator by the user. The calculations do not include upfront or continuing credit fees and charges. The resulting calculations do not constitute a loan application or variation to an existing CUA facility, loan offer or loan approval.

The extra costs of buying a home and how to minimise them
