    And only for 12 months - good for those in trouble, but less so as a strategic tool. But an extra year is better than a kick in the pants as my mum used to say! :D

    Let's hope this happens. At the moment the banks seem to be making life difficult with renewing existing IO loans.

    Probably too early to tell but If you moved from P&I to IO, would you be moving to IO rates? IO are generally higher and given the spread on some, it may still be better off staying P&I.

    Good point

    CBA and WBC spreads as an example have been shrinking.

    IO repayments will obviously be lower, regardless of the spread, espf if ones loan has say 11 years down on a 30.

    Please seek specific advice

    sounds too much like a jail sentence - which is how some people think of a mortgage, but I never have, to date

    Have any of the lenders gone ahead with this?

    BankWest certainly haven't, and are more difficult than before even for simply renewing a 5 year IO term.

    In many cases. most lenders are forced into a new APP due to ASIC regs
