Refixing or Restructuring

The team at RSFA will look pragmatically at what is best for you, and not the bank. It may be that we recommend remaining with your own bank – advice is key.

We welcome new and existing clients to contact our friendly team. We typically do not charge for re-fixing advice and will disclose any charges that may exist early in our engagement for your consent. Please note banks do send online offers to clients and we will request a copy of the offer to commence the advice process.

In summary, we can assist with:

  • Obtain basic information from you
  • Work with you to establish your needs and areas of advice required
  • Seek the best pricing from your existing bank as well as advise on other market pricing – we will be fully communicative within this process
  • Make a plan consultatively where we ultimately would want to achieve a value-add result from our perspective, which may include a better rate being negotiated with your bank or a refinance to another bank to acquire a financial outcome in your favour. Whichever the case, we will look to add value alongside this with sound and pragmatism in the financial advice we provide
  • We will look to manage your re-fixes moving forward provided you agree, and for that, we will work hard and diligently to gain your ongoing business

Note, most banks allow you to fix up to 60 days prior to your fixed rate renewal. We therefore highly recommend being in touch around 2 ½ to 3 months prior to the renewal of your fixed term for these reasons:

  • In an increasing interest rate environment, it may save you money to fix as soon as you are able so as to beat a rate rise
  • By discussing whether it is best to re-fix or look at refinancing to another provider as early as 3 months from the expiry of your fixed loan term we can spend time working with you and setting up an approval to refinance, should that be in your best interests
  • Banks can take a varied amount of time per loan application. It is not advisable to leave these discussions to the last minute; it may mean you feel forced into taking your existing bank’s offer without the considered opportunity of a better deal. Being organised means more time to negotiate with the incumbent bank and making an informed decision about the next finance move

Finance cost speaking, this is a pivotal moment and dealing with your current bank only provides an option with your current bank! And the deal kicker is on any given week we are aware of and monitor the best rates and packages are in the market as we deal with all the banks; how could your existing bank possibly profess the same?

Would highly recommend Rod and his team, they are great to work with. Was first introduced to Rod a decade ago and have continued to benefit from his knowledge and experience over the years. He works hard to get results and pushes to get everything lined up even when the banks are dragging their heels.
