Understand Your Credit bureau report for your dream home

iCompareLoan.com is pleased to bring to you this event in collaboration with Credit Bureau, a public education talk on Understanding your credit bureau report, maintaining a good credit or repairing your credit so as to be able to finance your dream home. SME Business owners may sometimes be too busy to bother about their own personal credit status. This often impacts their ability to borrow for their companies, limiting their choice and cost of business expansion. Sometimes it could be silly mistakes such as deliberately not paying the bank on time because the bank staff makes you angry.

This talk serves to explain the various strategies for financing as well as how your credit affects each choice of financing.

At the panel discussion, you will have senior bank executive and credit bureau and 2 mortgage brokers to answer any question you may have regarding financing and market practices.

  • If your spouse has a habit of late payment, will he or she affect your ability to buy your joint home?
  • What should i do if my spouse if a habitual shopper and chalks up huge credit card debts?
  • What should I do if my husband is a director of a company and he is made a personal guarantor of his company’s term loan and the company defaults on its commitment to the bank?
  • What if I am a SME business owner and I need to expand my business, what are the cheapest form of financing given my credit circumstances?
  • Should I buy or rent my business premise? How will repairing my credit assist in doing so?

Some say, the property market is recovering, if you are not sure of your credit status, you may have the next 6 to 12 months to make it better, you should attend.

It is not common that you get to have credit bureau, senior bankers and CEO of reputable mortgage brokers such as Paul Ho and Financial Advisor Alfred Chia to answer your questions about how banks assess individual for lending and how to structure your finances and property financing portfolio.
