Important issues:
The size of the loan and the interest rate concession are the two most important issues but they are most definitely not the only aspects one should consider.

Most Banks offer extra benefits and products with their home loans; such as cheap life insurance or a credit card account.

The service a Mortgage Originator offers is completely free. They are paid by the Bank for each successful application.

  1. I need to do a home loan switch. I’ve had bad debt listing which has been actually paid up. I currfently have a bond which is paid very well and currently about R15000.00 in advance with payments. Is possible for me to switch? Thanks.


    Hi Smanga,

    This is in response to your query about switching your home loan. You mentioned that you had a bad debt listing but that your bond is currently very well paid and in advance.

    With regards to the bad debt listing – if that listing has been removed and your credit rating does not reflex any judgments you need not worry.

    Remember, even though you bad debt may now actually be paid up, that judgment might still be reflexing, therefore it is important check your credit rating.

    Otherwise, you are entitled to switch your home loan for a lower rate if you so wish. Most banks are willing to switch your bond if you can prove that your debts are paid up.
    For more assistance with the bond switch visit IBO HOME LOANS. Complete the short form on their website and a home loan consultant will contact you immediately.
