Switching your home loan
Read this step-by-step guide to find out how the home loan switching process works.
Steps to complete
1. Contact us to start the switch
Call the lending team on 0800 080 222 (Mon-Fri, 8am-6pm).
2. Get verified in branch
You’ll need to bring identification to one of our branches.
Some other things you may need:
- If you are a Flybuys^ member (and are switching to a BNZ Flybuys home loan), please bring your membership details with you.
- If your home loan is for a Trust, or a Company you will need to provide Trust or Company documentation, like your Trust Deed.
- If the home loan is for an investment property, the rental income will need to be confirmed. Please bring either a copy of the existing Tenancy Agreement, a Rental Appraisal from a local REINZ real estate agency or if your rent is paid direct into your account, bring the statements for that account.
- If your salary is not paid into a bank account, you will need to bring two of your most recent payslips.
- Three months worth of statements for your current loan and accounts.
