Financing for The Rainforest CCK EC
Financing for executive condominiums are typically from banks or financial institutions as HDB does not loan for ECs.
Government regulations for loans are as follows:
. Maximum of 80% loan if you do NOT currently carry a property loan.
. Maximum of 60% loan if you currently do have an outstanding property loan.#
If you require financing, it is highly advisable to obtain an In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter in advance before selecting or booking a unit. It gives you assurance that you do indeed qualify for a loan, and ascertains the maximum loan you can get for so that you do not risk forfeiting any of your booking fee.
Contact us at The Rainforest EC for information on obtaining the IPA.
# For executive condominiums it may be possible to obtain 80% loan even if you currently have a housing loan. Contact us if you would like to be put in touch with bankers specializing in executive condos who can assist and advise you on this.
