What is refinancing?
Refinancing is the process of replacing an existing loan with a new one. When it comes to home loans, it means your existing home loan is paid off and replaced with a new one. This is different from a second mortgage, where you draw on the equity you have built up in your home.

Weighing up the costs
There can be costs associated with refinancing and it’s important to factor these into your decision-making. For example, there may be a break or exit fees.
For a new car loan, you may have to pay an establishment fee and the ongoing administration fees could be higher than you’re currently paying.
A broker can help
Refinancing can be a serious financial decision with a number of variables to consider. A good broker can help establish the type of loan that may work best for you, how much you can borrow and any extra features you want. They can then gather information from many different lenders and help assess the costs and benefits associated with each loan.
As well as doing the legwork for you, they can guide you through the refinancing process and apply their knowledge and understanding of car loans to help you achieve the best outcome if you decide to go ahead.
Car Insurance - Are you fully protected?
You must take out compulsory third party (CTP) insurance before you are allowed to take your car on the road. If you borrow money and a lender takes security over the loan they will usually require you to pay for comprehensive insurance. This insurance covers damage to your own car and other people's property if your car is in an accident (including fire), as well as covering you if the car is stolen.
Gap insurance (also called motor equity insurance or shortfall insurance) covers the lender for the difference between what you owe on the car loan, and what the car is insured for under comprehensive car insurance if you write your car off.
