Are you searching for housing loan facilities in Nigeria? Then take time to digest this information on simple steps you can take to become a landlord in Nigeria.
This is a follow up to my last article on real estate in Nigeria. The information is from the Mortgage help desk of Realty Point Limited supported by Platinum Savings & Loan Limited.
It's a simple step on how you can use the National Housing Fund Loan Scheme to purchase or renovate a residential accommodation.
What is the National Housing Fund Scheme? It's a scheme introduced by the Federal government of Nigeria to facilitate the continuous flow of low-cost funds for long term housing fund for the benefit of all Nigerians.
Nigerians are expected to contribute 2.5% of their monthly salary to Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria. It does not matter if you are self-employed or you own your own business, trader, artisan, professional, business person, etc.
Active members can get maximum of N5 million at the rate of 6% interest repayable over a period of 30 years after they have been contributing for a period of not less than one year.
The pool of contributions is to give housing loan for all Nigerians at relatively low rate of interest. To have access to the loan you must be a contributor.
The interest rate applicable at the time you obtain the loan will remain fixed until the loan is fully repaid. If you are not yet registered, it is required you pay in arrears of 3 years.
Here are the requirements to benefit from the housing Loan scheme:
Evidence of registration with NHF Scheme (Pass-book).
Income statement (pay slip for past 3 months).
Tax clearance certificate for the past 3 years.
Offer/Acceptance letter from developers/sellers after payment of personal intake (20%).
