🆘 What is a Mortgage Prisoner?

Being a mortgage prisoner means someone can't refinance an existing loan - generally because borrowing power no longer works. We typically see this when interest rates increase, locking them into a no-longer-competitive product.

In Australia, hundreds of thousands of mortgage prisoners are not able to secure a better deal, potentially stranded in an expensive loan.

If this is you, here's some tips:

🔓 Don't hide. Tell your licenced professional broker and bank if you're experiencing financial stress

🔓 Understand your current loan contract. What's the rate, repayment, fees, years remaining? Is it interest-only or principal & interest?

🔓 Review your living expenses. What can be reduced in the household budget? Credit Card limits? These can help your borrowing power

🔓 Talk to your current lender. Tell them costs are rising. What deal can they do for you in the short term and long term? Brokers should do this ongoing

🔓 Most Important: Talk to your licenced broker. What can their big panel of lenders do.
