Fees paid upfront (on or before settlement date)
- Establishment Fee: required as part of the application process on all new loans, including refinancing existing Pepper loans. The establishment fee includes a valuation.
- Valuation Fee: the valuation when ordered by Pepper is included as part of the establishment fee.
- Legal Fee: covers the cost of solicitors used in all legal matters regarding home loan contracts and settlement.
- Title Protection Fee: a one-off, non-refundable payment similar to title protection insurance as it protects the lender from an event such as fraud when a mortgage isn't enforceable.
Fees paid upon settlement of your loan
- Monthly Administration Fee: a monthly fee for administering your loan and is payable in arrears on the same day each month as the settlement date.
- Lender Protection Fee (LPF): LPF is a one-off, non refundable fee used to offset the risk associated with loans of a higher Loan to Value Ratio (LVR). Somewhat similar to LMI it protects lenders against the unfortunate event of a defaulted loan. Learn more here.
- Mortgage Risk Fee (MRF): similar to LPF, MRF protects Pepper against the unfortunate event of a defaulted loan. There is a slight difference in the way the MRF fee structure is calculated.
- Discharge Administration Fee: a fee you pay when you discharge the loan agreement early.
