There are different ways you could use your home loan to get additional funds - see what will work best for you.

Absa Flexi Reserve

Make extra payments to save on interest.

How it works:

  • You are granted a Flexi Reserve facility with your Home Loan.
  • Pay extra into your Home Loan, either monthly or a lump sum payment.
  • Extra payments will reduce your outstanding balance, thereby saving you interest over the term of your loan.
  • If you need access to the available prepaid funds, you can transfer available prepaid funds from your loan to your linked Absa Transactional Account by using our Banking App or Absa Online.
  • Cash withdrawals and third-party payments (directly from the Home Loan Account) are not allowed.
  • Flexi Reserve withdrawals will increase your outstanding Home Loan balance and interest payable on the increased outstanding balance.
  • If you do not want to have access to the prepaid funds, you can contact us to capitalise the extra payments and recalculate your new monthly repayment based on the reduced outstanding balance.
  • Flexi Reserve conditions apply – refer to your Mortgage Loan Agreement.
