A few factors should inform your decision to buy your Holland Village dream home:
Use calculators to see if the mortgage payments on the new loan is affordable given your current salary. Property loan calculators help you know the mortgage payments from the different financial providers.
- Change in credit situation
Since the last time you took the loan, has your salary/company’s results/financial position improved or deteriorated? Have you been late in payment of debt? Did you sign on to be a guarantor or taken up more debt? Do you have a tenant? What is the remaining lease? All these factors will be considered when you apply for refinancing as your credit profile will be reassessed.
Financing residential property may lead to costs such as those relating to valuation, legal, etc. Look out for promotions where banks/financing companies waive charges.
- Clawback and lock-in period
Review your letter of offer and read up on the clawback and lock-in period to ensure that financing makes sense for you. If the switch is onerous and costly, it may not be worthwhile.
- Shop around
Once you have done your homework on the above, you can shop around for the financial institution that offers the loan package that suits you and look out for promotions. Make sure you view the loan package from the various financial providers, but do note that there are different rates for properties bought under personal name or company name.
You will likely be asked to provide the following in the application if you apply to finance residential property. Have these ready on hand if your property is bought under a company name.
- Copy of NRIC/Passport
- Income statement and/or audited financials (corporation)
- Bank statements
- Loan account statement from existing financing company showing repayment history
- Latest CPT withdrawal statement for property to be refinanced (if there is utilization of CPF)
- Title Deed
