What banks look for in borrowers
What do banks take into consideration before deciding to grant you a housing loan? The New Paper talks to bank mortgage specialists to find out more.
The maximum tenure a 60-year-old can get in some banks is 15 years. It will get harder to secure loans the older you are because a longer tenure would allow you to pay in smaller instalments.
If a borrower’s income is insufficient, a guarantor may help to secure up to 80 per cent of the loan.
4. CREDIT RECORDS
Those who have defaulted payments in any loan in the last six months are likely to face problems in getting a property loan.
5. THE PROPERTY
Some properties are considered unacceptable collateral to banks.
