    Frequently Asked Questions

    Variable Rates

    A variable interest rate is made up of two components, a bank ‘margin’ which remains fixed for the entire loan term, and the central bank’s issued lending rate know in the UAE as the ‘EIBOR’, the Emirates Inter Bank offered Rate.

    Variable interest rates fluctuate based on the EIBOR rate being applied against the bank margin rate. EIBOR rates in the UAE are applied to mortgages and home finance in monthly, quarterly, half yearly and annual versions. to put this into perspective the 1 month EIBOR will see your installment and rate change on a monthly basis and a 12 Month EIBOR product will see your installment and rate change only once every 12 months.

    Fixed Rates

    Fixed rates are offered by all of the banks currently in the UAE mortgage market. Fixed rate mortgages are useful products for locking in the rate and installment payable for longer periods of time, with fixed periods in the UAE ranging from 1 year right the way up to 15 years, following the maturing of the fixed rate products your bank will then apply a pre agreed variable rate (bank margin + EIBOR) to the home loan to take over once the fixed rate period has expired.

    A security cheque is essentially a collateral which all of the banks in the UAE require when any kind of finance or facility is provided to a client.

    The bank will request either one or a number of cheques payable to the bank from where the product is being taken from. The cheques are undated and cover the full liability either across multiple cheques or as a total amount.

    The bank requires such cheques to use in circumstances where the borrower defaults on the finance/credit which they had availed. The most common occurrence where the cheques are used, would be where payments have not been honoured for a period of time and any reminders or efforts to communicate have gone unanswered by the borrower.

    It is always better to apply the finance first. Real estate agents have more confidence in a finance buyer who approaches them for a property with a pre approval already in hand.

    Once you know you’re budget you can obtain a pre approval based on your maximum. This allows you to navigate and browse the property market with the confidence that a bank has already declared what they are able to lend to you.

    A pre-approval is a preliminary approval offered by banks to clients who are looking to obtain property finance but haven’t yet found a property.

    The bank can issue a pre-approval based on your maximum eligibility, the loan amount applied for isn’t final but is the maximum which the bank will be able to lend.

    Once you have a pre-approval you can be confident of receiving final approval and a mortgage from the bank as long as your circumstances haven’t changed from your initial application.
