What is Affin Extra Plus-i?
An Islamic variable rate home financing that is based on Diminishing Musharakah (rent-to-own) structure, whereby customer and the bank jointly contribute to purchase the property.
The bank can commit up to 90% of the property value, meaning it commands the major shares of the property in the first leg of financing. Over time, you can increase ownership of the house by paying your monthly rentals.
The rental contract can last maximum 35 years, or 70 years of age, whichever earlier.
Can I make prepayment and withdraw excess money?
Definitely. You can pay more to save on rental charges. The excess amount you deposit on top of your monthly instalment will go toward the calculation of profit, which is computed on daily basis, on the outstanding balance.
Imagine how much savings you’ll achieve for making extra payment every month?
Plus, you get to redraw excess money in your home loan account for personal consumption, subject to a fee. Make sure you have enough balance as stipulated in the advance payment bucket.
What are the EXTRA features?
Unlike any other Affin Bank’s home loan products, there is no processing fee, no retention period, and no charges for early settlement for Affin Extra Plus-i.
For those who wish to hedge their budget against uncertainty, this Islamic financing also offers a ceiling rate. Meaning, should there be any increase in the bank’s IBR, the rental rate will not go beyond this ceiling rate.
