If you need money, you could increase your current home loan by taking up a Further Advance. Get sufficient value in the property to allow bond registration to cover increased loan amount. Use the funds for anything from home improvements, education to dream holidays.

How to get it and what you can expect

  • Features of a Further Advance

    A Further Advance is a cost–effective way to access the increased equity in your home for that much needed renovations and extensions. Structure your Further Advance on Multiplan for easy money management and interest savings

    Example of Client A below with a Further Advance:

    Home loan originally granted: R180 000.00

    Current outstanding balance: R100 000.00

    Original bond amount registered: R180 000.00

    Original value of property: R200 000.00

    Current value of property: R350 000.00

    Client A submits a Further advance of R200 000.00.

    This will then increase the home loan to a Total Loan Amount of R300 000.00 (R100 000.00 outstanding balance + R200 000.00 Further Advance).

    In this case, an additional bond (second bond) of R120 000.00 would have to be registered via a bond registering attorney (R180 000.00 existing bond amount + R120 000.00 second bond = R300 000.00 total bond amount).

    Value of property: R350 000.00

  • How does it work?

    • You can apply to increase your loan by the difference between the original loan granted and the current value of your home (credit lending rules apply).
    • You can use the extra money on your home loan for anything you need, such as education or paying off other debts.
    • You will need to register a further bond with a Further Advance, which means there will be some attorney and bond registration costs.
