More Information

What is Public Bank 5 Home Plan about?

5 Home Plan is semi-flexi or full-flexi home loan (at your choice) charges a fixed or variable interest rate pegged to the Base Rate (BR) and repayment period of up to 35 years.  

The flexible part is the option to repay more onto the mortgage when you have extra cash, and to withdraw funds when you are short of money. You'll be limited to one withdrawal per month and charged RM50 every time you take money out. 

Nevertheless, you must inform Public Bank prior to making the prepayment or else Public Bank will treat the extra cash deposit as an advance on your regular monthly installment. For conventional home loans below RM100,000 there is no withdrawal facility.

What benefits can I get from Public Bank housing loan?

The best part about this housing loan is when you put down extra money into your loan account, it allows you to reduce installment payments as the interest is calculated daily from the remaining loan balance.

Apart from that, Public Bank 5 Home Plan also comes with a free credit card with its annual fee waived. If you have excellent credit history and an existing relationship with Public Bank, you can also apply a higher margin zero moving cost package up to 100% financing, including MRTA and legal fees.

So how do I pay for my mortgage each month?

You can pay wherever you can find a Public Bank branch in Malaysia using ATMs or cash deposit machines. Better still, you can make an online transfer from your Public Bank savings or current account, Interbank GIRO, or set-up a standing instruction for automatic deductions.

Do I need insurance policy?

You are advised to take up MRTA as a back up for your remaining monthly instalment payment in the event you came into contact with total permanent disability or death. A Fire Insurance policy is compulsory.

What can I expect to get from Public Bank 5 Home Plan housing loan?

You can expect to get great savings by depositing extra cash to reduce your loan principal and reduce the loan tenure along with overall interest.

If you opt for semi-flexi plan, the only hassle is that whenever you wish to deposit extra cash you'll need to visit the bank branch, fill the form, queue up and then deposit the cash - bit of a pain unless the bank is right outside your front door. 

For greater convenience and to save you a great deal of time, you may want to consider getting a full-flexi plan which you will need to attach a current account to the loan for greater savings on interest.
