Sabban Property Investments and Commercialbank offer exclusive ‘5% deposit’ financing scheme for Sabban Towers
Sabban Property Investments has announced an exclusive mortgage scheme to provide housing finance on easy and affordable terms to prospective buyers of the prestigious Sabban Towers property on Porto Arabia, the main marina of The Pearl-Qatar development. Formulated jointly with Commercialbank, one of Qatar’s highly reputed banks, the scheme provides an exclusive installment repayment structure enabling end-buyers to acquire an apartment in the Sabban Towers with minimum financial outlay.
The Sabban Towers project being developed on Porto Arabia by Sabban Property Investments, is on track for completion as per schedule in the first quarter of 2008. Under the scheme, Commercialbank will offer finance of up to 80 per cent of the property value. Customers can book their apartment with a 5% deposit and no other installments are due for 6 months, at which time a further 5% is payable. Subject to approval of a Commercialbank mortgage loan, the bank will fund 20% of the purchase price during the construction period. On completion of the apartment, a final 10% cash injection is payable by the customer. Also at this point, Commercialbank will offer a first charge mortgage of up to 80 per cent of the purchase price, again subject to individual status.
Customers will be required only to pay interest on the 20% paid by the bank during construction, after which both capital and interest payments commence on the entire loan amount.
