More Information

How does Wahdah Home Refinancing-i work?

Bank Islam Wahdah Home Refinancing-i offers homeowners a solution to help lower their monthly instalments and allows them to have extra cash by capitalising on their home's appreciation value.

Bank Islam can finance up to 90% of the value of the completed property excluding:

  • Mortgage Reducing Term Takaful (MRTT) / Mortgage Level Term Takaful (MLTT) – (compulsory)
  • Houseowner/Householder Takaful Plan (if applicable)
  • Stamp Duty
  • Legal fees
  • Valuation fees

This Islamic mortgage also features (1) no lock-in period, (2) no compounding elements, (3) no processing fee and (4) no penalty for early settlement.

You can apply for tenures as long as 35 years or up until 70 years old, whichever is earlier. But of course, it all entirely depends on your creditworthiness and Bank Islam's approval.

This loan is applicable only for completed property and strictly for refinancing purposes only. So if you're thinking about jumping ship to another bank, maybe this mortgage is a good place to start.

Here are the profit rates and the eligible property value for your reference.

  • Agency fee (this is currently waived): RM25 for the Appointment of the Bank as Purchase Agent (ABPA) and RM25 for the Appointment of the Bank as Sales Agent (ABSA)
  • Request for EPF withdrawal (manual application): RM20 per request

What are my obligations?

As with any Islamic home loan your monthly instalments are calculated based on the Profit Rate, which in turn is determined by the Islamic Base Rate (IBR). Luckily for you, the profit rate is capped at a ceiling rate to hedge you from any sudden hikes in the IBR.

However, do note that if you are unable to service your repayments, it would be wise to contact Bank Islam to negotiate an alternative for payments and avoid foreclosure.

Do I need Takaful coverage?

By taking up MRTT or MLTT takaful, you will be covered should any unexpected event occur. In the event of your death or Total Permanent Disability (TPD), the said Takaful coverage will pay the reduced sum covered as per schedule. 

You also have the option to subscribe to the Houseowner/Householder Takaful Plan. Fire insurance, on the other hand, is compulsory for most mortgages. Bank Islam should be able to furnish you with more details if you require it.
