Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) has introduced a special rate of 9.29 per cent for new mortgagors, which is now the lowest on the market, the company announced yesterday.
"This is a reduction from its previous low of 9.40 per cent", said Tiffany Gordon, JNBS Executive, Mortgage Sales, noting that the new rate, which took effect on October 1, comes with 90 per cent financing for the purchase or construction of residences.
"The rate also applies to the purchase of lots with infrastructure, although the maximum financing terms differ," she continued. "Listening to clients' needs and supplying value-added products and services to meet those needs, is the essence of what we do at Jamaica National."
According to JNBS, new mortgagors who take up the offer will benefit from no processing fees up to January 31, 2014, plus a 10 per cent discount on peril insurance for the first year from JN General Insurance Company Limited, or a one year free membership with the Jamaica Automobile Association, both subsidiaries of the JN Group. To refurbish existing residential property, loans are being offered at 9.80 per cent, with financing dependent on the size of the loan, the company added.
For members in the United Kingdom, JNBS has reduced its rates on Sterling Currency Loans to six per cent, down from eight per cent. The company has also reduced its United States rates from 8.25 per cent to 5.25 per cent and its Canadian rates from eight per cent to five per cent, all for 70 per cent financing for 15 years. Its commercial foreign currency rates can be accessed at a reduced rate of 6.5 per cent.
