Can I obtain a housing loan if I have credit card issues?

I've been thinking of getting a housing loan for quite some time now, but I have a credit card issue. Would my delinquent account affect my eligibility to get a housing loan and if it does, how long would I need to have a good credit record for me to be approved by financial institutions for a housing loan?

    Like in most financial institutions your bad credit record would definitely affect your eligibility to obtain a housing loan because it would be harder for those financial institutions to trust your capacity to pay off your debt. You need to at least have a clean credit record for at least 6 months before you get approval from financial institutions.

    You can actually apply for a credit card and personal loan at the same time

    UOB Personal Loan / United Overseas Bank

    To apply for a UOB Personal Loan, you’ll need either a UOB CashPlus account or UOB credit card as UOB draws from your credit card limit. If you’re new to UOB, you can apply for a credit card and personal loan at the same time but note that terms & conditions like the fee schedule of the credit card will also apply to your UOB Personal Loan. UOB bank is one of the few banks that provide instant approval for personal loans for submissions between 7am to 8pm by new UOB customers.

    One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees

    CIMB CashLite / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    The CIMB CashLite personal loan is based on your available credit card credit limit therefore you have to be a CIMB cardholder to apply for it. One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees but CIMB doesn’t publish their interest rates online. The actual interest rate is personalised based on your risk profile and credit history so you might very well end up with a higher interest rate than advertised.

    Sign up for CreditAble in order to cash your credit line using the Maybank CreditAble Term Loan

    Maybank Personal Loan / Maybank Singapore

    Maybank does not exactly offer a proper personal loan in itself but its term loan is linked to its personal credit line product. You just need to sign up for CreditAble in order to cash your credit line using the Maybank CreditAble Term Loan but note the terms & conditions and annual fee however. In my personal opinion, the loan amount is small while the interest is high, so it may be best to avoid this one.
