Loan-To-Value (LTV) housing loan limit
Loan-To-Value (LTV) is one of the key criteria when a home buyer decides on a housing loan. It is simply a term to describe the housing loan quantum a bank or financial institution is willing offer as a percentage to the valuation of the property in question.
On 5-July-2018, the government announced the new revised guideline of Loan-To-Value acquisitions of residential properties on or after 6 July-2018.
*On top of the above LTV limit, the remaining portion of purchase property % or amount is payable in cash/cpf subject to loan eligibility approval from relevant authorities or financial institutions.
Total debt obligations includes credit cards, car loan, outstanding mortgage cannot exceed 60% of total income.
There is an arbitrary 30% cut of all variable and rental income, and 30% to 70% cut for the value of eligible financial assets.
Calculate new loan repayments based on medium-term interest rate of 3.5% for residential properties and 4.5% for non-residential properties, or prevailing interest rate, whichever is higher.
If borrower can’t meet the TSDR threshold, the guarantor will be the co-borrower. Use income-weighted average age of borrowers rather than younger borrower’s age to determine loan tenure.
