    FAQs

    • What is MortgageOne Account (MOA)?

      The MortageOne Account is a Standard Chartered Bank (the “Bank”) current account and is linked to the Home Loan facility. MOA is available in AED only.

    • How does MOA work?

      The current account and the Home Loan facility are linked together. The principal outstanding of the Home Loan will be offset against the balance in the current account on a daily basis for the purpose of calculating interest. This means you can pay off your Home Loan faster, because your payments are going more towards your principal amount and less towards the interest.

      * Example:

      •  Loan Amount: AED 1 Million
      • Interest Rate: 3.75% p.a.
      • Tenure: 25 Years
      • Deposit Balance in Current Account (CA): AED 400K
      Standard Home Finance Product

      First month repayment (without offset)

      Standard Home Finance Product

      First month repayment (with offset of AED 400K in CA)

      Instalment: AED 5,141.31

      (= Interest AED 3,184.93 + Principal AED 1,956.38)

      Principal Outstanding: AED 998,043.62

      Instalment: AED 5,141.31

      (= Interest AED 1,910.96* + Principal AED 3,230.35**)

      Principal Outstanding: AED 996,769.65

      * Interest is calculated on AED 600K (= 1Mil – 400K)

      ** Principal component is higher than standard mortgage product by AED 1,274, which is equal to the amount of interest saved by the client.

      *Rates and numbers are for illustration purposes only and do not take into account daily balance variations.

      In the above example, when you pay your instalment, the instalment components are adjusted to accommodate the lower interest payable. Hence, interest payable is minimised and principal outstanding is reduced at a much faster rate. This will result in the loan amount being paid off in a shorter period of time.

      Note: An offset cap is applicable on the Home Loan balance and it is based on the cap you select at the time of application. The offset is up to a maximum of 75% of the Home Loan balance.

      An offset fee will be charged on the anniversary of the initial disbursal and for the duration of the Home Loan facility. The cap ranges and their corresponding offset fees are decided by the Bank.

    • What is the Withdrawal Facility?

      The Withdrawal Facility is a key benefit of the MOA. The interest you save as a result of the offset, referred to as the Available Limit, will be available to you for withdrawal. This will increase your loan outstanding balance up to the Preset Safety Limit (defined as below under point no. 7).

    • Who is eligible for MOA?

      UAE residents (Nationals and Expatriates) can apply for MOA subject to the provision of required documentation and criteria. In the event you become a non-resident you undertake to inform the Bank of the change in your residency status.

    • What are the various types of Home Loan products that can be availed under MOA?

      MOA is available for residential properties, completed and under construction financed by the Bank.

    • What are the fees applicable to MortgageOne Account (MOA)s?

      Please refer to our Service and Price Guide available on our website at www.sc.com/ae for the fees applicable on the Home Loan and MortgageOne Account.

      Important fees to note are:

      Offset Fee is charged on the anniversary of the initial disbursal and for the duration of the MOA. The offset fee is based on the offset cap selected and it is applicable on the Preset Safety Limit (PSL).

      Offset Cap Offset Fee
      Up to 25% Free for Life
      25.01% up to 50% 0.52%
      50.01% up to 75% 1.05%

      Conversion Fee of 0.525% is charged on the outstanding loan amount for switching from MOA to a traditional Home Loan and vice versa.

      The caps are determined by the Bank and are subject to change.

    • What is a Preset Safety Limit?

      The Preset Safety Limit (PSL) is the outstanding Home Loan amount as per the standard payment schedule (i.e.it does not take into consideration the deposit balance or offset).

    • How does a MOA differ from a traditional Current Account?

      You can use your MOA in the same manner as a traditional Current Account in terms of deposits and withdrawals.

    • Will I get a periodic statement for tracking the payments or transactions in this account?

      A monthly consolidated statement will be provided for MOA, which will give details on your Account and Home Loan. The statement will be sent to your registered email address and will also be available on Standard Chartered Online Banking. If you opt for it, you will receive a physical statement. Please note that physical statements may be subject to charges as per the Service & Price guide.

    • How can I track the interest saved under MOA?

      The information on interest saved will be available as part of the monthly MOA statement.

    • If I have an existing current account with Standard Chartered, do I need to open a new account if I want to avail a MOA?

      You will be required to open a new MOA for repayment purposes regardless of any existing account(s) you may hold with us.

    • If I have an existing Home Loan with Standard Chartered, can I convert it to a MOA?

      The option of converting the existing Home Loan facility to a MOA is available. For more information you may contact your Mortgage Advisor/ Relationship Manager or you may contact our Home Finance Service Desk at HomeFinance.ServiceDesk@sc.com.
