Our financial calculators use some of the same methods of calculation that are used by some of Australia’s major lenders.
We update the calculators regularly and do our best to ensure their accuracy to reflect current the policies, products and pricing of our lenders.

We give no assurance or warranty that the results of our calculators are current and take no responsibility for any loss or inconvenience caused by someone relying on the information or results provided. Lenders may change policies without notifying us or our calculators may contain errors.

The interest rate for your loan is set by the lender, not by Australian Lending Centre Pty Ltd. Due to the large number of lenders and loan products that we offer it is not possible for us to list every interest rate on our website.
Please call us on 1300 138 188 and we can provide you with an interest rate quote for your situation.
Each lender has their own policies and procedures applicable for customers that are unable to make their repayments. However, as a general rule they will follow the below principals:
This is as a guide only. We are not involved in the collection of debt, this is the responsibility of the lender. Each lender has their own policies and procedures.
If you have chosen a fixed rate home loan, then when the fixed rate period expires you have a choice of refixing your loan or switching to a variable interest rate.
If you take no action, then most lenders will automatically switch you to the standard variable interest rate.
As an existing client of ours, you can call us to discuss your fixed or variable rate options at this time.
Please be advised that each lender has their own fixed rate renewal policy and you should refer to your bank for the specific policy for your circumstances.
