    Q. What is monthly rest interest rate?

    1. The monthly rest interest rate is the applied interest rate on the loan. The rest rate is the interest charged on the outstanding loan amount, after making repayments on a regular, monthly basis. The rest rate can change depending on the tenure of the loan, the loan amount, and the monthly repayments.

    Q. How will my credit score affect my loan application?

    1. The credit score is a very important parameter that influences your loan application as banks expect you to have a clean credit history of at least one year if you wish to apply for loans. The credit score takes into account your credit history (indicates late payments, defaults, etc.), your total debt to income ratio, you monthly repayments and the total number of debt sources. Your loan will only be approved if your credit profile is in line with the bank’ standards.

    Q. If I already have a home loan, can I expect to receive a lower rate of interest?

    1. Yes. Most banks give you a lower rate of interest on your renovation loan if you already have a home loan with the bank. You will need to negotiate on the interest rate to get a much reduced rate.

    Q. What if my individual income is lower than S$24,000?

    1. The bank allows you to apply along with a joint applicant. The total income of the joint applicants has to be a minimum of S$24,000 in order to qualify for the loan. All necessary documents in this regard must be submitted.

    Q. How long will the loan amount take to get disbursed?

    1. The loan, after receiving initial approval, will take about 7 business days to be received. You can track your loan application online - the bank will update your loan status as and when it is being processed.
