More lenders move on rates

Four more lenders have announced reductions to the standard variable rate (SVR) on their home loan products, but not all have passed on the rate cut in full.

Following the Reserve Bank’s decision to cut the official cash rate by 25 basis points to a record low 1.75 per cent, QPCU will pass on the full 25 basis points cut to its SVR loans for owner-occupiers and investors, effective 23 May.

Meanwhile, Suncorp Bank reduced its variable rate by 20 basis points for owner-occupiers and by 15 basis points for investors.

The regional bank also lowered its SVR for business loans by 10 basis points.

AMP’s Essential Home Loan variable rate will be reduced to 3.88 per cent (with a 3.90 per cent comparison rate) for all new owner-occupier customers, while its Professional Package variable rate for new owner-occupier term loans of $75,000 and above will drop to 3.95 per cent (with a 4.31 per cent comparison rate).
