  • A government issued Certificate of Ownership
  • A registered Deed of Assignment, Sublease or Conveyance

The maximum loan amount we offer is UGX2.5billion with up to 25 years repayment period.

Perfection fees are the fees paid to the government for the transfer of ownership of title from the original owner to the customer and also the registration of Legal Mortgage to note the Bank’s interest. Yes, you will be required to pay these fees upfront as it is a condition precedent to drawdown of the mortgage facility.

Interest is calculated as a percentage of the principal amount outstanding on a daily basis i.e. on a reducing balance basis. The interest component of your monthly repayments is therefore larger at the start of the loan and reduces progressively over the life of the loan.

The interest rate for our mortgage is floating in line with prevailing market conditions.

EMI refers to equated monthly instalments. It is computed using a formula which spreads interest and principal repayments into equal monthly amounts over the tenure of the loan.

DBR refers to your debt burden ratio. This is the percentage of your monthly net income (after tax and other deductions) which we would permit you to use to service your mortgage facility.
