    Hi All,

    Just curious if anything will change in this situation...

    If I am to move out of PPOR and make it an investment, do I need to notify the bank as well? At the moment as PPOR i have great rate, but if I make it investment it will be a lot worse rate.

    Anyone else transitioned like this recently? Did you notify the bank? Any impact from ATO?
    I would much rather shut my mouth and not say anything, but not at the risk of doing anything wrong.

    Probably not. You need to read your loan agreement to find out.

    I would think not..... But next time you touch the loan linked to that PPOR for a top-up or equity release it may need to change.

    No need to let the lender know, people change property use all the time.

    Wouldn't then this mean every purchase you make you say to the bank it will be PPOR (assuming you meet serviceability) and then just as everything settles you rent it out... I suppose for every new purchase you would need to get a new lender. The new lender will then look at the purchase as investment property at a really good interest rate.

    If you buy interstate, they might want proof of your new employment ;)

    And you're lying/being deceptive in mortgage applications - not exactly a good idea unless you like committing criminal offences.

    Tax deductibility depends on how the property is used, not the type of loan involved.

    Hmmmm....If I really do intend to live in that property, then circumstances change and I make it investment property. Surely they cant do anything about that. Assuming everything is getting paid and paid on time.

    I think it should be more of criminal offence (even though it is not) that the bank set me up with offset account, even though they were not calculating correctly. They never bothered to inform me of that. It was not until I started doing a check that I noticed the variances going back 3 years (yes I had a lot of time on my hands) but spending few hours checking that made them credit my account for $3,400. I didn't even get a sorry for it or we wont charge you a yearly fee. After that I dropped them....
