For a limited time till 30/9 there is a special offer for existing investors with significant relationship with AMP.
1. Fix rate will lock you in....you will NOT be able to take out equity ( especially with AMP- equity release not allowed for IP till advise)
2. Break cost to sell
3, if you can refinance with your servicing , i would consider that over AMP
4. Tax consequences - ie redraw/ offset etc...
5. It's an ok fix rate....still some around that's lower for IP...but the offer is decent given the current market
6. Consider your interest only terms left to go etc...
Lastly if in doubt, speak to your broker or banker first + speak independent advice from your accountant as required.
Planning ahead is key, Short term pain for long term gain.
