The section below throws further light on the refinancing option by BPI under its home loan portfolio.
BPI Refinancing Home Loan
Paying off a home loan is relatively a long term commitment, especially if you’ve chosen a long term. If you’re someone who is feeling the pinch with your amortization repayments due to bad service or premium rate of interest, it's advisable to consider getting the outstanding balance refinanced by another bank to save on future charges and fees. In this option offered by most of the banks providing home loans, one can transfer the entire outstanding balance to a new bank and be benefited by low rates and better terms.
Under the BPI Housing Loan scheme, the borrower can refinance an existing home loan from a different bank. Based on your monetary eligibility, you can transfer the entire outstanding balance and benefit from world class services and affordable rates offered by the bank. Plus, you also get an elaborate term option of up to 10 years to repay the loan availed in monthly amortizations. If you’re paying premium interest charges on an existing loan, it makes sense to switch over. The “Interest Rates” section provides further details in this regard.
