P&N Bank reduces servicing assessment rate

The bank has reduced its qualifying rate in a bid to maintain its competitive position in the market.

WA-based P&N Bank has announced that it has decreased its servicing assessment rate, or qualifying rate, for existing and external home loans.

Effective from 2 June, the bank – a division of Police & Nurses Ltd, which operates under the mutual model – will be reducing the servicing rate for both existing P&N Bank home loans and external home loans from 6.75 per cent to a flat rate of 6 per cent.

In an update to brokers, the bank said the changes “will strengthen [its] competitive position in the market and result in greater borrowing capacity for our members”.

However, the bank said there would be no changes to the servicing rate of new home loans, which would still be calculated at the actual rate plus 2.50 per cent.

In-progress applications

All applications submitted prior to 25 May can rely on previous submission sheets.

The new servicing rates will apply to any applications received on or after this date, in which case, the new submission sheet would need to be used.

Applications that have been reworked after 25 May with an increase in loan amount and/or change in term should use the new submission sheet. 

In-progress applications where servicing was not evident will need to be resubmitted using the new submission sheet showing the net disposable income passing.
