Learn about Mortgage

Mortgage Pre-Approval

For a mortgage to be approved, you have to fulfill the following conditions. You must have an account with the mortgage bank. You must have saved up to a certain percentage of the loan amount required. You must submit a mortgage application form, offer letter from the prospective seller, and title document of the property to be purchased. Also, you must provide proof of employment, proof of income and a copy of your life insurance policy.

Mortgage Interest Rate

The interest rate is the percentage of the principle charged for issuing the mortgage. With most mortgage providers, you're guaranteed an interest rate of 18% with the option to pay back your loan over a period of 15 years or less.

How does Refinancing Work?

Refinancing options are available to known and trusted customers of the bank who have repayed previous loans when due. The documents to be supplied are the same as that of a mortgage.

Frequently asked Questions

What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a loan that buyers can use to purchase a property, and that is secured against the property itself. If buyers cannot repay the debt, then the lender takes possession of the property.

What is the maximum amount I can borrow?

The total amount you can borrow usually depends on your debt-to-income ratio or credit score, which is determined by the borrower's ability to repay their debt and their credit history. The monthly payment should generally not be more than a third of the borrower's gross income.

Where can I get a mortgage?

Always use certified financial institutions, such as banks or credit unions, to avoid any scams.

What are the different fees that apply?

The fees depend on the type of financial institution, but in addition to reimbursing the capital - the amount of money that was lent - borrowers usually need to pay interest every month that can be negotiated with the bank.

What is the difference between a fixed and an adjustable interest rate?

In a fixed-rate loan, the interest rate remains the same for the whole duration of the loan. In adjustable-rate mortgages, the rate varies depending on the economics and monetary policy of the country.

What happens if I cannot pay my debt?

The lender may foreclose and seize the property, which will become their possession.

Do I need mortgage insurance?

Usually no. However, if the amount of money needed is very high compared to your income or your capital, then financial institutions will ask you to take out mortgage insurance.

What is the best time to get a mortgage?

You should wait until you have a regular source of income to take out a mortgage. A period of high inflation is also usually beneficial for debt owners, since inflation reduces the debt burden in real terms, and debts are generally not indexed to inflation.

Back to top

How much capital do I need to be granted a mortgage?

The more capital you bring, the lower your interest rate will be. Banks usually require a minimum amount of capital, often around 20 percent of the total amount of the loan.

How does Refinancing Work?

Refinancing takes the current debt and changes its terms and conditions into an entire new different debt, with new obligations.
