Learn about Mortgage

Mortgage Pre-Approval

Mortgages can be accessed either as a single or joint applicant. For joint applicants, you have to indicate the type of relationship existing between yourselves. You also have to submit two forms of proof of an address. Documents such as utility bills, tenancy agreements or any of such related would suffice. You need to provide proof of income as well. A salaried worker would need to provide at the least, three most recent payslips. Income gained from scondary sources can be included with the discretion of the mortgage lender. Self-employed applicants have to provide audited financial statements for the three most recent years, business bank account statements for the three most recent years, certificate of incorporation, certificate to commence business and/or any other documentation. You need to also provide two forms of proof of identification, as well as bank statements of the three most recent months. Non-resident applicants must submit a recent credit report in addition to the above.

Mortgage Interest Rate

The current mortgage rates are between 13 and 29 percent. These rates are typically lower for dollar mortgages than cedi ones.

How does Refinancing Work?

Refinancing allows applicants with an existing mortgage to transfer the loan to a new service provider. The new provider then assists you in paying for your home, and this can be done at a reduced interest rate. Mortgage refinancing entitles beneficiaries to the possibility of lower monthly payments, giving mortgage borrowers a needed relief.

Frequently asked Questions

What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a loan that buyers can use to purchase a property, and that is secured against the property itself. If buyers cannot repay the debt, then the lender takes possession of the property.

What is the maximum amount I can borrow?

The total amount you can borrow usually depends on your debt-to-income ratio or credit score, which is determined by the borrower's ability to repay their debt and their credit history. The monthly payment should generally not be more than a third of the borrower's gross income.

Where can I get a mortgage?

Always use certified financial institutions, such as banks or credit unions, to avoid any scams.

Back to top

What are the different fees that apply?

The fees depend on the type of financial institution, but in addition to reimbursing the capital - the amount of money that was lent - borrowers usually need to pay interest every month that can be negotiated with the bank.

What is the difference between a fixed and an adjustable interest rate?

In a fixed-rate loan, the interest rate remains the same for the whole duration of the loan. In adjustable-rate mortgages, the rate varies depending on the economics and monetary policy of the country.

Back to top

What happens if I cannot pay my debt?

The lender may foreclose and seize the property, which will become their possession.

Back to top

Do I need mortgage insurance?

Usually no. However, if the amount of money needed is very high compared to your income or your capital, then financial institutions will ask you to take out mortgage insurance.

Back to top

What is the best time to get a mortgage?

You should wait until you have a regular source of income to take out a mortgage. A period of high inflation is also usually beneficial for debt owners, since inflation reduces the debt burden in real terms, and debts are generally not indexed to inflation.

Back to top

How much capital do I need to be granted a mortgage?

The more capital you bring, the lower your interest rate will be. Banks usually require a minimum amount of capital, often around 20 percent of the total amount of the loan.

How does Refinancing Work?

Refinancing takes the current debt and changes its terms and conditions into an entire new different debt, with new obligations.
