    As stated in the Letter of Offer, you have to give the Bank three months’ written notice to redeem your loan or pay three months’ interest in lieu of notice. You should appoint a lawyer to act for you in your loan redemption and to provide the date for completion. The Bank will appoint its lawyer to act for the Bank if your lawyer is not on the Bank’s panel. The lawyers will handle the legal documentation for the discharge of the mortgage and release of the title deed. Please check your Letter of Offer for any applicable fees/refunds to be made to the Bank. Please also note that all legal fees including fees for the discharge of mortgage are to be borne by you. During the redemption process, the Bank will provide only one preliminary statement to your lawyer three weeks before the completion date and one final redemption statement on the actual day of completion. Any subsequent requests for additional redemption statements or changes in completion date will result in additional fees being imposed. Please note that you are required to serve a fresh notice to the Bank if your loan is not redeemed upon the expiry of the three months’ written notice. Please note that the Bank will not accept any request for capital partial prepayments after they have received your notice of redemption. Any capital partial prepayment notices received prior to the banks receipt of your redemption notice will be treated as cancelled. The Bank’s final claims may include any unpaid insurance premium and related borrowings such as credit card overdue amount. Your cashier’s orders for your full settlement must be received by the Bank before 10am on the day immediately after the date of completion otherwise additional interest will be payable. For a completion date that falls on a Friday before the weekend or the eve of a public holiday, you may arrange with your solicitor to provide advance written authorization to the Bank to debit from your designated account. This will avoid payment of additional interest accruing over the weekend or public holiday. If your credit facilities or loan is fully paid-up, you may wish to engage a lawyer to discharge your mortgage with the Bank. Otherwise, please note that there is an annual custody fee payable for Title Deeds that continue to be kept with the Bank.

For me nothing beats the 5% year-round cash rebates on dining, groceries, petrol and transport (that is taxis, ride hailing, trains and buses inclusive), locally and overseas when you spend minimum S$600 per month. And the cash rebate is capped at S$150 per month. So if you don’t drive, not to worry as you can enjoy 5% cash rebate for your transportation needs, be it a taxi ride, a booking made via ride hailing apps, or trains/buses.
