What properties will Easy Street lend against?

Easy Street Home Loans cannot be used for owner-builder properties, to purchase vacant land, or for rural properties greater than 10 hectares. If you are unsure if the property you are considering qualifies, please contact us or call Easy Street Direct on 1300 13 14 65.


How do I make repayments on my Easy Street Home Loan?

Repayments can be made by automatic direct debit from a nominated bank account, an Easy Street Everyday Access Account or arrange a direct credit from your salary.


How do I pay off my home loan faster?

By increasing the frequency of your repayments, you can reduce the principal of your loan faster, thereby reducing both the amount of interest you pay and the term of your loan. 

To work out exactly how much you could save, check out our Extra Repayments Simulator. 

You will not incur a penalty for early payout of your variable home loan. If you have a fixed home loan, you are able to make extra repayments up to $25,000 per year without penalty.


How often will I receive a statement?

If you have a home loan with Easy Street, we will issue you with a statement every 4 months. 

Account information is also available by accessing your Account through Easy Street Internet Banking.
