Headquartered in Sydney, and operating as a subsidiary of the Dutch multinational ING Group, Australia’s ING Bank says it changed the way Australians bank 20 years ago by launching the country's first high interest, fee-free online savings account. Since then, ING have brought value to Australians with home loans, transactional banking, superannuation, credit cards, personal lending and insurance products.

Dubbed Australia’s most recommended bank, ING says it prides itself on consistently high customer satisfaction, simple and straightforward home loans that are beneficial to customers, and open, honest transparency across all business aspects.

How can I refinance with ING?

Refinancing your home loan can be a great way to pay off your home sooner, lower your repayments or access your equity.

ING outlines four steps to refinancing:

  • You can generally apply to refinance your mortgage with most lenders online or over the phone.

  • Provide your supporting documentation outlined during discussions with your lender, to the lender for assessment.

  • Once your new mortgage is approved your approval documentation, including any special conditions will be sent to you.

  • Once you've accepted your loan offer and returned it to your new lender, they will arrange for repayment and discharge of the existing loan.

To get started with refinancing or a new home loan application, you can head straight to ING’s website or download the app through the App Store on iOS or Google Play on Android. You can also speak to a ING loan expert on 1800 100 258 if you are a new customer or 133 464 if you are an existing ING customer.
