What you can expect

  • What you get

    • We will approve your loan in 2 working days and give you a letter of intent.
    • We offer up to 100% finance for purchase and building loans and up to 85% for equity and refinance loans.
    • You can combine your and your spouse’s income to qualify for a higher amount.
    • Depending on your income and the value of the house you are buying, we can lend you up to P10,000,000.
    • Convert some of the value of your property to cash.
    • Use your house as security and raise capital for other projects.
  • What you need to know

    • Your property is the security for the loan.
    • You don’t have to bank with Absa to qualify for a home loan (after approval you’ll have to move your income to Absa if you’re not a customer yet).
    • Scheme customers can qualify for a home loan without opening an account with us.
    • The maximum repayment period is 25 years or up to the age of 65, whichever is shorter (dependent on retirement age required by your employer).

      • A letter from your employer confirming your employment and income
      • A copy of the title deed for the property
      • A sale agreement letter

    • Approved council plans
    • Valuation report of plans
    • Title deed
