So what exactly is the Zero Entry Cost?
The Zero Entry Cost home loan offers competitive interest rate, with a margin of financing up to 95% of the property value, whether it is under construction, completed or auctioned.
This home loan can also be used as a refinancing tool, in case you wanted to upgrade your current home. Since it's Zero Entry Cost, the legal fees, valuation costs, and stamp duty fees will be absorbed by the bank up to 2.5% from the approved financing amount.
How do I get the financing?
This financing plan is offered exclusively to Malaysian citizens. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old on the date of application. Anyone can apply for this financing plan, provided that they are not more than 70 years of age at the end of the financing tenure.
Other than that, be sure to have good credit scores and prove that you are not bankrupt. More often than not, purchasing a home usually involves more than one person.
There is an option for joint application as long as the second applicant is your direct family members such as parents, children and siblings.
Are there payment options?
Yes there are a few ways in which you can pay the installments for this plan. Government employees, you have the option of using the Biro Perkhidmatan Angkasa. However if that option is not available to you, relax.
Select from Salary Deduction, Savings Account-i Deduction, Standing Instruction and Cash. Whichever option you go for, make sure it is something you are financially comfortable with, so it doesn’t put a strain on your bank account.
Choose to pay off your financing amount over a period of 10 years up to 35 years at great interest rates.
Can I settle the financing prematurely?
Well this is not exactly a flexi-loan plan, but you could always discuss your options with the bank directly. However you can submit payments in advance, but it will be counted as an advanced payment rather than early settlement.
