Property-Backed Loan

How much can I cash out?

How much you can cash out depends on a mixture of 3 key factors, namely, loan-to-valuation (LTV), Outstanding home loan amount and total CPF funds used. Of course you might be subjected to general regulatory limits like total debt servicing ratio (TDSR). Businesses should also show an ability to make good on future monthly debt repayments.

Loan-to-valuation

The LTV is calculated by the maximum loan a lender is able to provide over the valuation of your property. Example, a 70% LTV on a $1million property means the maximum loan you can take is $700,000. Therefore the higher the LTV, the more you can cash out. See table's LTVs for different property types.

Loan outstanding and total CPF used

With the LTV, your total cash out amount is now %LTV of your property minus your outstanding loan and the CPF used to purchase the property (with accrued interest).

Bank vs. non-bank

Here’s a full breakdown on the pros and cons between a bank and a non-bank.

As you can see, while banks are much cheaper in terms of pricing, a non-bank option offers a wider range of flexibility. This includes a higher LTV, and interest servicing option. This may be a deciding factor as an interest servicing option greatly reduces your monthly repayment and increases your cash flow.
