On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Legal Home Loans director of sales Cullen Haynes and legal lending specialist Josh Jaramillo mere minutes after the RBA’s December cash rate call about what the latest rise in interest rates means for lawyers with mortgages, the advent of the “fixed repayment cliff”, and whether lawyers should be looking at breaking their rates early.

The pair also detail how younger practitioners who are looking to get into the property market should interpret the current climate, the available good news amidst the pain points, including the incentives that lawyers have access to when borrowing money, what 2023 could have in store, particularly if a recession hits, and the practical steps that all legal professionals can take in considering their financial futures.
