HOME LOAN APPLICATIONS

Several SA banks confirm that there is no minimum income to qualify for a bond. Banks use your income to determine the size of the bond you qualify for. Generally banks will offer you a bond equivalent to the repayment of (33%) of your monthly income. The instalments will be calculated based on the interest rate you have been offered. This is based on the "repo rate" or prime interest rate, which is set by the SA Reserve Bank.

Know your credit score

Every South African citizen has a credit record whether good or bad and all your credit transactions are documented. Your bank will need your permission to access these records. You can also obtain these details yourself before submitting them to your bank to get an idea of whether you will be granted a bond. 

You are entitled to a free copy of your credit record once a year. Your credit history can be a good thing as banks also decide which interest rate to give you based on your credit score and if it is good you are more likely to get better offers from different institutions.
