Getting loans and advances

Home loans

Neither CTSL nor Toea Homes offer home loans to our members.

To get a home loan, you should choose a bank that offers competitive interest rates and annual and administration fees.

Our team at Toea Homes can answer any questions about choosing the best bank for your circumstances.

The land that your house will be built on has a 99-year state lease under Toea Homes Ltd. The title is given to you when you fully repay your loan.

Advances

Members may purchase a house and land package from Toea Homes using the Member Housing Advance (MHA) scheme.

You may also be able to use the MHA scheme as equity to get a loan from an approved financial institution.

Payments as equity are paid directly to the assigned bank.

Contact Toea Homes if you have any further queries.
