Calculate what you could save by switching to Heartland

Keen to refinance before your fixed term is up, but not sure whether it’ll be worth the break fees from your current provider? We can incorporate your break fees into your new Heartland Home Loan so you can pay them off over time.

Input your current home loan details (and potential break fees) into the calculator below to see how much you could save.

This calculator is a general tool to estimate repayments and the total loan cost only, and is not an offer of finance by Heartland. Our calculations are based on the information you have input, including the interest rate and loan term you selected, and are calculated at the interest rate being constant for the entire loan term. The total interest difference is based on the total interest that would be charged on your current mortgage if the rate was constant for the entire remaining loan term, minus the total interest that would be charged on a Heartland mortgage if the rate was constant for the entire selected term. Changes to interest rates and/or the repayment amounts will change this. Our quoted interest rates are subject to change. Lending criteria, terms, interest rates and fees apply.
