Tell me about BSN MyHome-i
BSN MyHome-i is based on Islamic contract of Commodity Murabahah and offers you the opportunity to own your dream house (completed or under construction) at affordable monthly rental rate, which is fixed upfront and throughout the tenor.
You have two options under this home loan: (1) Zero Entry Cost (ZEC), where the bank absorbs all fees associated to your home loan; or (2) Non-Zero Entry Cost (NZEC), where the entry cost is financed by you.
Subject to approval and your credit background check, BSN can offer financing up to 90% of the property value for a maximum tenor of 35 years.
What are the unique features of this product?
If you follow the nation’s annual budgetary announcement, you would notice that there is a 20% discount on stamp duty on all Islamic home financings, which runs until the end of 2017.
This means you are saving on application cost should you chose this product. You know what else? BSN is waiving the processing fee for BSN MyHome-i so that you can enjoy even greater savings!
Is the same profit rate applied to Non-Zero Entry Cost package?
No, it is not as some of the entry costs are borne by you. For NZEC package, the profit rates will be much lower than the ZEC one.
|You borrow||Estimated interest rate|
|Up to RM100,000||BR + 3.00% p.a.|
|RM100,001 to RM300,000||BR + 0.70% p.a.|
|RM300,001 and above||BR + 0.60% p.a.|

Can I fully settle the financing after lock-in period?
You may do so by writing a notice to BSN in advanced. The bank will refund you by way of Ibra (rebate), i.e. a reduction in the balance outstanding of the principal loan amount.
Are there any major risks I should know?
You should know by now that your house is pledged against your Islamic mortgage as a mean of security. If you don’t service your monthly rental payment timely, or worst, defaulted, your property will be foreclosed!
