Malaysia is one of the countries in the region that has one of the highest household debt.
Because of this in 2013, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) announcing a few strict policies to curb the situation.
One of the steps taken is concerning the Refinancing Home Loan, where ten years limit in refinancing cash out was introduced to calculate borrower loan eligibility.
However, the facts that so many of us are still in debts where take-home income can be as low as RM1000 per month is something very alarming.
Imagine earning RM5000 per month, and after paying all the bills, you left with RM1000 to survive another 30 days for food, transportation, entertainment and some other life surprises that may or may not happen.
I believe it can be challenging for some people.
After a few years, a new hybrid of refinancing was introduced by certain banks – Refinancing Home Loan To Consolidate Debt.
Refinancing Home Loan To Consolidate Debt is something created to help people with lots of debts, high installment, and high interest rates.
For this new Refinancing Home Loan, all the debts will be consolidated to ONE home loan account. The borrower will focus on paying ONE account, one installment monthly.
Sound great so far?
How does it work?
It’s like any refinancing procedure; you need to apply for the home loan.
Your new home loan will be divided into two accounts.
- Home Loan 1 will be used to cover the outstanding balance of the existing home loan.
- Home Loan 2 will be used to cover the consolidated debts.
The new Refinancing home loan is RM500,000.
The new bank will use RM300,000 to cover the outstanding home loan.
The balance RM200,000 will be used to cover all your other debts.
The new bank will directly fully settled with other consolidated debt’s banks.
And if there is an extra from the RM200,000 after paying your debts, the cash out portion will be put in back into your home loan account or will be given to you by the bank into your account. It depends on the bank’s policy.
So far, I hope you understand.
Okay, I hear some of you might say.
“I prefer if the bank will provide me the cash-out and once received the money, I will directly pay to the bank.”
Sure, you can do.
