COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHEN GETTING AN IN PRINCIPLE APPROVAL HOME LOAN
AIP or Approval In Principle is an indicative home loan approval provided by a bank. As it is indicative, it does not represent a formal offer from a bank for your home loan. Every potential homeowner should start your property purchase process with an AIP application. This will give you an estimate of your eligibility and help you define your budget for a new property purchase.
An approved AIP has a validity period of up to 30 days. During this validity period, if your Option To Purchase is submitted to the bank, it will provide an official letter of offer for your home loan assuming there are no changes to your income or debt obligations (best not to apply for any credit cards, car loans or any type of loans during this 30 days). After the validity period expires, a new AIP application will need to be submitted.
The most important risk is that you stand to lose your Option Fee (which is usually 1% to 5% of your property purchase price) if you are unable to secure the required loan amount required for your property purchase. Also, without an AIP, you might not get the best service from a property agent as they might question your ability to afford your desired condo or EC property.
Yes, you can. But do note that every AIP application results in your credit report being generated by the bank. Having your credit report generated multiple times by different banks can negatively impact your credit rating and some banks might take that into consideration during your home loan application process which results in the possibility of a lower loan amount. Ensuring that you have a GOOD CREDIT SCORE FOR A HOME LOAN application is crucial, therefore, try to refrain from sending applications to multiple banks.
