No, you cannot redraw during the construction period. If you choose a variable rate loan you will have a redraw facility available at the end of your construction period.
At People's Choice Credit Union we understand that credit is a very important facility which allows you to achieve your personal, financial or lifestyle goals faster than you could if you had to rely on your savings alone.
As a mutually owned financial institution we embrace our responsibility to understand your personal situation when we make recommendations regarding providing, extending or arranging credit for you. This is to ensure you are reasonably likely to meet the obligations you have in respect of repaying the debt and avoid experiencing financial stress.
But we recognise that situations may change from time to time which may inhibit your ability to meet your credit repayment obligations. We understand the pressures that you and your family may experience during these difficult times and we work with you to find a mutually acceptable solution to aid in your overall debt management strategies and to continue to work with you to achieve your financial goals.
Your loan will be disbursed as the funds are required, so you will only pay interest on the portion of the construction loan you have drawn down.
You can choose from a range options including:
The construction period of your loan will be interest only. You have the option of selecting whether you will have a further interest only period at the end of your construction period, or if the loan reverts to principal and interest repayments.
The construction period for your loan is up to 12 months from the date of settlement.
