Gateway Bank's Green Plus Home Loan, rewarding borrowers with a 7 Star or higher NatHERS or Residential Efficiency Scorecard certification with a 0.25% discount off our standard Premium Package Home Loan1 rate.

 

At Gateway we’re committed to doing the right thing for our Members’ pockets and their planet. That’s why we’ve introduced the Green Plus Home Loan which is designed to reward homeowners who have invested in making their home energy efficient and reduced their impact on the environment with a 0.25% discount off our standard Premium Package Home Loan1 rate.

 

If you are buying, refinancing, building or upgrading your home to a 7 Star NatHERs or Residential Efficiency Scorecard rated energy efficient home, our Green Plus Home Loan could be for you. If your home already has the 7 Star certification and you would like to take advantage of our rewarding rate, give us a call or apply online to refinance your existing loan to our Green Plus Home Loan.

 

Our Green Plus Home Loan offers all the flexibility and benefits of our Premium Package Home Loan, including a 100% Offset with Eco Debit Card, redraw, unlimited repayments and a 0.10% bonus on Term Deposit rates.

 

Am I eligible?

To be eligible for Gateway’s Green Plus Home Loan, the property must have a Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), or a Residential Efficiency Scorecard rating of 7 Stars or higher for energy efficiency. This needs to be evidenced with a certificate from an accredited NatHERS or Residential Efficiency Scorecard assessor. New builds or construction plans that have been certified with a 7 Star NatHERS or Residential Efficiency Scorecard rating are also eligible. For security property in the ACT, which has its own system for energy rating, a certificate from a rater licensed in the ACT showing at least a 7 Star rating is also acceptable.

 

Does your home have a Residential Efficiency Scorecard rating under 7 stars? You may still be eligible for a Green Home Loan.

We are rewarding home owners who have taken measures to reduce their property’s environmental impact with a 0.25% discount from our standard Premium Package Home Loan1. The Green Plus Home Loan offers 100% Offset Account with a linked Visa Eco Debit Card, redraw and flexible repayment options of weekly, fortnightly or monthly. 

 

Want to know more about the Gateway 100% Offset Account? By linking an Offset Account to your Green Plus Home Loan, the balance in your Offset Account will offset against the balance of your home loan, reducing the interest you’ll pay and potentially shortening the term of your loan. Having your salary deposited directly into your Offset Account is a great way to make your money work harder for you. Any funds, no matter how small, helps to reduce the interest on pay your loan.

 

A 100% Offset Account comes without account keeping or service fees, whilst still giving you the flexibility of 24/7 access to your funds when you need them with a Gateway Visa Debit Card.

 

Does your property not meet the eligibility criteria for a Green Plus Home Loan? You may still be eligible for a Green Home Loan.
