OCBC renovation loan at 2.86% p.a.

OCBC renovation loan

For many years, I only knew RHB and Maybank as the major players with the lowest interest rate in the renovation loan sector. You can see a lot of their advertisements in major interior magazines and websites. Even most of the Interior Designers or contractors recommend these 2 banks because of their low interest rate.

However, local banks are beginning to be active in the renovation loan sector. They have changed my perception that RHB or Maybank are your only 2 choices.

In this post, I will be mainly talking about OCBC renovation loan, their key features and how they can help you in renovating your dream home.

Key features of OCBC renovation loan

1) Low loan interest rate at 2.86% flat
2) First 3 cashiers order free
3) The only bank in Singapore to allow 3rd party borrowing. This is a very important feature which I will explain further.

What does it mean to you?

1) OCBC has one of the lowest and most competitive renovation loan interest rate in the industry. Therefore you can be assured that you will not be paying high interest rate for your loan.

2) Providing free 3 cashiers order for applicants is a pretty standard practice in the industry. If you have to pay additional charges for 2nd and 3rd cashiers order from your renovation loan, you are not getting a good deal.

3) 3rd party borrowing scheme is a very useful feature for many homeowners. Since the start of Vincent Interior Blog, I have received many emails regarding renovation loan. there are many homeowners who have problem getting a renovation loan due to several reasons like low income, bad credit rating, excessive borrowing, current or ex bankrupt. Most of the time, I can only advise them on how to minimize their renovation budget or borrow from relatives. However, OCBC’s 3rd party borrowing scheme is really giving everyone the chance to have their loan approved. The 3rd party involved need not be the owner of the home (renovation job site). This means that anyone can be the 3rd party. Your friends or relatives can take up the loan for you. If the 3rd party (which is your friend or relative) is worried that the owner (which is you) does not pay the loan, both can open a joint account for which the loan can be deducted from.
