Heritage Bank has cut rates on a number of its variable home loan products.

Heritage Bank revealed this week that it has cut its special Discount Variable home loan rate to 3.98 per cent. This rate is available for owner-occupier loans of more than $150,000, with a maximum LVR of 90 per cent.

Heritage has also cut the rates on its Home Advantage Variable package product, which bundles together a home loan, credit card and transaction account.

The Home Advantage Variable rate for a loan of $700,000 or more is also just 3.98 per cent; for a loan from $250,000 to $700,000 it is 4.03 per cent and for a loan of $150,000 to $250,000 it is 4.13 per cent.


Both the Discount Variable offer and the Home Advantage offer are 10 basis points down on what they were.

Heritage Bank’s head of third-party channels, David Ure, said the rate cuts reinforced the bank’s determination to provide customers with fantastic deals.

“We are all about delivering great value for our customers and we are committed to offering low rates that are among the best in the marketplace,” Mr Ure said.

“These offers deliver on that commitment, especially given what’s happening in the wider market.

“These rates are just another great reason to look past the big banks and see what Heritage has to offer.”

The new rates became effective yesterday.
