Luke and Richard continued the conversation about financial planning and lending.

Topics covered include:

  • Fixed or variable loan for your home – what’s the difference?
  • Can you have some variable and some fixed?
  • The benefits of the right structure of lending and offset accounts.
  • Why you shouldn’t accept the first interest rate offer a bank gives you, if you go direct.
  • The value of seeking advice from a broker.
  • A good budget helps you understand your situation and allows you to think about your ability to repay a loan under different situations.
  • Take the time to protect your debt. Two weeks sick leave isn’t enough of a buffer for most people. Income protection insurance to protect your income is generally tax deductible too.
