Useful Links to defer your Singapore Mortgage Loan commitments – 2020 is a tough year for all businesses and individuals. Covid-19 has caused the world biggest economies to close their doors and has now forced Singapore to stop all non-essential services to contain the spread.
Under the Second Budget Singapore Resilience Budget announced by DPM Heng Swee Keat, Repayment of Residential Property Loan can be deferred.
Quoting the FAQ from the MAS circular: https://www.mas.gov.sg/-/media/MAS/resource/covid-19/FAQs-on-Repayment-Deferment-Resi-Property-Loans-for-Individuals.pdf
Persons can choose to defer up to 31 December 2020 to either:
- The Principal portion of the monthly instalment, while continuing to pay the monthly interest; or
- The full monthly instalment. Interest will continue to accrue on the principal amount deferred, but no interest-on-interest will be charged during this deferment period. After the deferment period, the loan amount and interest accrued on the deferred principal will be fully amortised over the remaining loan tenure.
Read the MAS Circular to find out more.
