Tell me about the UOB iNTELLIGENT Retail Loan?
Traditionally, if you wanted to by a shop-lot or house-shop you've had to take a commercial property loan in the name if your business. UOB have changed all that by offering small enterprise property loans that you can hold in your own name, as a private individual.
So, if you have dreams of setting up a small business UOB offer financing up to 80% of your commercial property's value. For a live-in shop lot with a dual residential classification you can increase the financing to 95%.
What is the difference between a flexi loan and a semi-flexi loan?
UOB calculates your interest charges at daily rest so you can deposit in excess of your monthly repayment to lower your interest and reduce your tenure.
With the flexi option, you will be given a loan and a linked current account so that you can make deposits and withdrawals anytime you like.
With the semi-flexi option, there is only one account attached to the mortgage which still allows for extra deposits and withdrawals. Withdrawals will be subject to a RM50 fee.
Can a foreigner apply?
Yes, of course. However, make sure you have a valid working visa with at least one year left to run. Your maximum margin of financing will be 80% of the property value.
Do I need to buy any insurance?
First and foremost, fire Insurance policy is compulsory. MRTA is optional but can be included in your mortgage to reduce upfront payment at the start of your tenure.
