Switch your existing home loan

If you switch your existing bond to Capitec Home Loans, we may be able to offer you a more competitive interest rate on your home loan.

By moving your bond, you could pay a lower interest rate and monthly instalment. This will free up some money in your monthly budget.

Other possible benefits include:

  • Access to any extra value in your property (known as equity – a once-off cash amount you could get out)
  • Use any equity you get to reduce your short-term debt, do home improvements or towards education
  • You don’t have to worry about paying new bond or home loan registration fees upfront. You can finance these costs as part of your Capitec home loan
  • Switching your bond is a simple process. Complete the application online in 5 –10 minutes and we’ll take care of all the paperwork

credit insurance

Credit insurance is required for credit terms of 7 months or longer to cover death, permanent or temporary disability, unemployment, the inability to earn an income or retrenchment.

Your credit life insurance premium is charged monthly at a Rand amount per every R1 000 of the outstanding balance. This means that the less you owe, the lower your monthly credit insurance premium becomes.
