Free Advice/Discussion on Bank Mortgage loan

For those who are planning to

1) Seek for Approval In Principle (AIP)
2) Source for the Best Mortgage Bank Loan in the Market
3) Have some questions related to Bank Mortgage Loan answered


Q & A

1) What is Approval In Principle (AIP) or others call is In Principle Approval (IPA)?

It is a verbal agreement by the bank, showing the amount they are potentially prepared to lend to you, based on your financial ability and the credit history. It is not a gurantee, but it do help customer to gauge the range that the bank is able to finance them and to choose a property of that range.


2) Does all bank give the same amount for AIP/IPA?

No, different bank set different criteria. It varies throughout the banks.


3) What is the difference between Repricing and refinancing?

Repricing mainly is to negotiate a better rate within the same bank while refinancing is to switch a bank for a better rate



4) What is the difference between going straight to the bank and getting a mortgage broker to serve me?

There are more than 10 banks / Financial Institute in Singapore, 0.10% - 0.2% makes a difference on the interest you paid yearly. If Bank A only sell Sibor package, Banker A will tell you that Sibor Package is best and others cant fight them .
For Mortgage Broker, we consolidate rates from almost all banks in Singapore , source the best rate for you and tailor it to suits your risk level.
Moreover, we do quaterly / half yearly review on customer package to determine if they require a switch of bank.



5) Do we have to pay mortgage broker for their service?

Most bank renumerate brokers for their service and normally broker service are FREE (unless otherwise stated)


6) Since the bank is paying Mortgage Broker , will Mortgage Broker still source us the Best rate in the Market?

Mortgage Broker are renumerate based on a percentage of the loan, getting you the best package wont affect their commission, so in order to get more repeat customer and referrals, Mortgage Broker will source you the best rates, based on your risk taking level.


6) What are the basic documentation required for a financing of property?

For New Purchase,

1) CPF OA account ( CPF website –> My Statement -> Section A <print this section>)

(Under 'My Flat > Purchased Flat > Financial)
7) Signed Application Form
8) Option To Purchase / Sale & Purchase Agreement

You do not need to have a property to do AIP .with your income doc , Bank will give you an indication on how much they are willing to lend to you. This way you can source for property within that budget. This will save you a lot of time

The loan to value limit of 60% for second property(with first property still have outstanding loan) is regulated by MAS, hmm...if you get 80% LTV wont you be breaking the law???

Maybe unless you get the second property and sold the first property or full paid off the first loan....then you may get 80% loan approval if you can show your excerise OTP.

Hi Bros,

I asked this question in the other thread but have yet to have any replies. So I'll just cut and paste here.

I just got sibor rate home loan from DBS, but my monthly payment will only kick in gradually (3 years) after the TOP. My banker friends said to go for SIBOR now, as its very very low and unlikely to rise for the next 3 years. But once TOP, should start looking at fixed rate as staying on with SIBOR will be akin to gambling (can shoot up to 3~4%).

Is this line of thinking ok? What is the typical fixed rate that banks give (assuming SIBOR at 3%)?

Can mortgage my shares for 500lk loan? Even sibor + 1% can.
