Can I loan money for our house damaged by a typhoon?

My family and I are on a vacation in out of the town. We stayed there for two weeks. Yet in our hometown there is a typhoon that we didn't know that will come. So we stayed out of town to keep safe as per the authorities, we cannot go home yet. After the week of typhoon, we went home and found some of the parts of our house damaged and broken due to the strong winds and rain.

    If you need funds for your renovations, you should get a renovation loan instead of getting a personal loan. While a personal loan does the same job as that of renovation loans, banks and moneylenders check a person's credit risk and where they will use the money to determine if they should lend you money.

    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.

    A great contender for the 7-year personal loans provider

    Bank of China $martLoan / Bank of China

    This card is a great contender for the 7-year personal loans lead yet is the relative newcomer on the block. This does not stop them from being very aggressive in Singapore these past few years. Although Bank of China $martLoan’s interest rates are on the high side, Bank of China is generally more lenient than most other banks in Singapore and have a lower minimum annual income.

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.

    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.
