Are You Eligible for a Home Loan? Here Are 4 Tips on How You Can Check Your Eligibility.

There are a lot of processes and steps that need to be followed before you apply for a home loan to buy your dream home, and we want to make sure you don’t miss any of them.

To ensure that you are eligible for a home loan, we have put together some more information for you to read. 

Employment/Work History

To be eligible for a home loan, all lenders require you to provide them with proof of employment. This is to ensure that you have a stable income. A minimum of two years of employment history is required by lenders to prove you have a stable income. 

This will help you get approved for a home loan, and will also help you get the best interest rate.

If you are unable to provide work history, we would recommend that you provide another source of income.

Your Debt To Income Ratio(DTI)

Your debt to income ratio is the total amount of your debt, as compared to your income. This is the amount of your debt, as a percentage of your income. This number is often calculated when applying for a loan. In Malaysia, the average accepted percentage of debt to income ratio is a maximum of 30%.

If you are found to have a higher proportion of debt to income, you may end up purchasing a low costing house. Although these are general requirements, do note that each lender has different regulations.
