BSN To Introduce New Housing Loan Package In January

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) will be introducing a new housing loan package suited for the lower-income group in January next year.

In a statement today, BSN said the package, currently being put together, will cover both Islamic and conventional housing loan facilities.

It will be in line with BSN's vision to become a bank for all Malaysian communities and provide financing help for communities requiring such help.

In the 2008 Budget announced here last week, the government allocated a fund of RM50 million as bank guarantee for providing housing loans to those without any fixed income.

BSN now provides the Giro Conventional Home loan and the Islamic Al-Bai' Bithaman Ajil (BBA) Home loan facilities.

The bank, established in December 1974, currently has more than seven million clients with savings amounting to almost RM8 billion.

Starting April the banks have imposed a 50 sen processing fee on top of the 15 sen stamp duty on each cheque. The fee also applies to those applying for a Bankerís Cheque, Bank Draft and Cashierís Order. Do you think this additional charge is justified?
