Can Malaysians apply for the Bank of China Housing Loan?
Yes. Bank of China has been in Malaysia since 2001, with many branches all over the country offering financial products for locals, permanent residents and Chinese nationals alike. This housing loan from Bank of China is a no frills mortgage tied to the BR - If you are looking for a straightforward home loan with no processing or monthly maintenance fees, you've come to the right place!
Subject to a credit check, the bank lets you finance up to 90% of the property up to 30 years.
How does it work?
The Bank of China Housing Loan works like any conventional home loan with fixed monthly repayments. Your instalments may change according to any changes in the BLR, but you can always pay in excess to reduce your loan principal - you will need to inform the bank one month in advance, in writing of course. Unfortunately, the bank does not allow for withdrawals on your extra repayment.
What kind of fees do I need to pay?
The bank will not charge you for any unnecessary monthly or set-up fees. You will only need to fork out some cash for evaluation done on your property, stamp duties, and disbursement fees.
Would I need to purchase insurance?
A Fire Insurance policy is compulsory for all home loans, and the premium is chargeable once every year.
