Pepper Money Home Loan Fees

Pepper Money’s exact costs for its fees are opaque. Generally, home buyers can expect to pay any or all of these fees when applying for and settling a loan with Pepper:

  • Establishment Fee: One-time application fee for new loans.

  • Valuation Fee: Covers independent property valuation costs.

  • Title Protection Fee: Non-refundable fee for legal title protection.

  • Legal Fee: Covers solicitor costs for loan contracts and settlement.

  • Lender Protection Fee (LPF) and Mortgage Risk Fee (MRF): One-time fees for high Loan to Value Ratio (LVR) loans, payable at settlement.

  • Monthly Administration Fee: Ongoing fee for loan administration.

  • Discharge Fee: Charged upon early loan repayment

A rate-lock fee may apply if you want to know the rate you’ll be ultimately paying at settlement. Further, break fees may apply if you exit a fixed-rate loan early, but could be waived in certain circumstances.

Applying for a Pepper Money Home Loan

Applying for a home loan with Pepper Money is straightforward and can be done entirely online, by phone, or via a website enquiry.

Required Documents

For PAYG Applicants:

  • Two current payslips
  • Plus one of the following: recent group certificate, tax return/taxation notice, employment letter, or three months of bank statements.

For Self-Employed Applicants:

  • Last two years' tax returns
  • Two years' tax assessment notices
  • One month's business bank statements.

Alt doc loans are available for those who can't provide standard documents.

The loan process typically takes up to six weeks, from application to settlement, though can be done quicker. Pepper says potential delays are likely due to missing or incorrect documentation.
