Do I need any Takaful insurance with this Islamic Home Financing?
House Owner Takaful is compulsory for this Islamic mortgage. You are also encouraged to take up Mortgage Reducing Term Takaful (MRTT) with this financing package. That way you know that you family will be well provided for, if any mishaps were to happen to you especially if you are the sole breadwinner.
Can a non-Muslim apply for this mortgage?
Definitely yes! It doesn’t matter what your religion or race is, Affin Islamic Bank accepts business from any Malaysians that meet the requirements for this shariah-compliant financing plan – that’s a minimum income of RM2,000 each month and 18 years of age.
What are my monthly repayments?
Affin Islamic Bank will calculate your repayments each month, which will be based on the amount borrowed, the length of the tenure and profit rate which you are eligible for – which will be based on your credit rating.
As such the longer the mortgage duration, the smaller your monthly commitment is; but you’ll pay more profit rates to the bank in the long run. Taking these points into consideration, having a thorough financial plan and seeking advice from a bank officer is important to help you gauge your ability to meet the monthly commitments.
