Will lenders pass on the RBA rate cut to you?

Posted 5 months ago

The RBA has cut the official cash rate to a new record low of 1.25%. But hang on a sec… Will lenders even pass on the cut in full? Today we’ll look at how you can make the RBA rate cut work for you.

The Reserve Bank has cut interest rates to 1.25% – down from 1.5% – which is the first rate cut in almost three years (since August 2016).

“The Board took this decision to support employment growth and provide greater confidence that inflation will be consistent with the medium-term target,” said RBA Governor Philip Lowe in a statement.

But will the banks pass the cuts on?

Well, that’s to be determined by the banks. However, the government has urged them to pass on the cuts in full to customers.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg met with Commonwealth Bank chief executive Matt Comyn the day before the cut was announced after similar meetings with other major bank CEOs.

“I expect all banks to pass on the benefits of sustained reductions in funding costs,” said Mr Frydenberg.

What next?

Well, on the back of the RBA decision, you may see a number of lenders advertising interest rate cuts.

What can be hard to determine is if they’re offering to pass on the full cut, a partial cut, or simply re-advertising a rate they’ve been offering for months.

So what to do?

Well, the good news is that we’re following the market closely. We’ll know which lenders are passing the rate cut on to their customers in full, and which lenders aren’t.

So if you see or hear about a rate cut from a lender that you want to know more about, your best bet is to get in touch with us and we can give you a good idea of how it compares to other lenders in the market and/or whether there are other options that are more suited to your situation.

My partner and I are so happy we found Kathy when completing the biggest purchase of our lives!

People would say that we decided to do things ‘the hard way’ by building our first home, however with Kathy at No Fuss Home Loans this was not the case. Kathy has been extremely helpful every step of the way (over a year and a half!) making sure we completely understand the process and comfortable before signing the dotted lines.

Kathy has always been there for us whether it’s a phone call, email or a late night visit to her place. We couldn’t be more grateful!
