UOB Home Loan comes with a lock in period of 3 years and an early settlement penalty fee of up to 2% on your outstanding loan amount if you complete your loan repayment within this period. UOB offers 4 distinct semi-flexi and full-flexi home loan packages with a varying degree of flexibility in terms of cash access and repayments. UOB’s iNTELLIGENT Home Loan features flexible repayment options and offers you an interest only option for the first 2 years. Repayments can be made on a daily to monthly basis. Payment holidays can also be requested during heavy-spending festive seasons or during emergencies.
For preferred customers, a Premier version of this package is available offering a more personalised service. Both packages allow an accompanying overdraft facility which comes at the cost of higher interest rates, and an annual facility fee of RM120. UOB’s Flexi Mortgage is a full-flexi home loan that allows you to make payments in excess of the instalment amount in order to save on interest at anytime. With a linked current account, Flexi Mortgage allows you more flexibility in making extra repayments, and convenient withdrawals as and when cash is needed. The Flexi Mortgage facility also automatically converts into an overdraft facility once 70% of your principal amount has been repaid.
With an UOB home loan you can secure up to 95% financing, inclusive of MRTA (provided the policy is purchased from Great Eastern Insurance). The maximum loan tenure is 35 years (in accordance to the latest ruling by Bank Negara Malaysia) or until the borrower reaches 70 years of age, whichever is sooner.
