      Lifestyle option conditions

      Borrowers will need to make a formal request to RAMS with an updated assets and liabilities statement, with all borrowers signing the request. 

      • Lifestyle Option is only available to cover injury, illness, retrenchment, maternity leave or parental leave
      • Usual reduced period is six months. This can be reassessed for a further six months. Shorter periods may also be taken provided the total time does not exceed 12 months over the term of the loan.
      • Borrower will need to provide evidence confirming the reason, such as a redundancy notice, maternity/parental leave approval, or medical documentation etc.
      • The deferred portion of repayments will be capitalised to the remaining loan principal balance.

      • Borrowers taking maternity or parental leave will need to wait at least 12 months after starting their RAMS Home Loan. 
      • Other conditions and lending criteria apply.

       

       

    • Hypothetical scenario

      John and Katie had taken out a RAMS Home Loan two years ago and were now expecting a baby. They wanted to reduce their monthly loan repayments while Katie was on maternity leave.

      RAMS says...

      Having saved, they were ahead in their loan repayments and their LVR was now below 90%. And because their particular RAMS Home Loan had the Lifestyle Option, John and Katie were able to halve their monthly interest only repayment for 6 months with the amount owing added to the loan’s principal. 

      The expectant couple were of the view that it was a small price to pay for the time they were able to share as a family without the pressure of meeting loan repayments while Katie was on maternity leave.
