What You Need To Know About Utilizing Your Epf To Buy A House


Buy a house using EPF
Are you planning to buy a house on your own? However, with the skyrocket high price in property’s price over the years, it has become financially unaffordable for people nowadays to buy a house on your own, especially for young working adults. You start calculating the mortgage repayment by using a home loan calculator. You certainly do not want to get into a financial burden as well. Bank loan alone will not give you a 100% loan financing and you cannot afford to pay the downpayment. Fret not, there is still one option left for us Malaysian. Eligible applicants could withdraw money from their EPF accounts to fund their downpayment.


Withdrawing money from your EPF account to buy a house comes with benefits as well:

Affordable monthly installment

Withdrawing money from your EPF accounts to pay for downpayment will help you release your financial burdens by paying lesser monthly instalment.

Save on housing loan’s interest rate

You can use the money you withdrew from your EPF account to pay off the high interest rate and save the remaining interest cost to fund other miscellaneous costs.

Helping spouse

You can pay for your spouse’s home loan and help reducing his or her financial burden.


Withdrawing money from your EPF do come with some drawbacks as well, such as:

Retirement plan

After withdrawing money from your EPF account to buy a house, your retirement plan will surely be affected. So make sure you have other retirement savings or plans before deciding on withdrawing money from your EPF account to buy a house.

Reduced dividend earning

When you withdrawing a huge sum of money from your EPF account, you are also earning less from the dividend earnings of 5%-6% per annum.

Account 2 money withdrawal
You are only allowed to withdraw money from Account 2 and not Account 1 where it holds majority (70%) of your monthly contributions.


After thinking through the pros and cons, here comes the application. You are allowed to apply if:
You hold a Malaysian citizenship;You are a permanent resident;You are a non Malaysian who was once an EPF member prior to 1st August 1998;You are under 55 years old with a minimum of RM500 in your EPF Account 2;You just signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement lesser than three years ago and intending to buy a residential property with cash or housing loan.
Next question would be how much money can you withdraw from your EPF account? This will then depend on the details of property purchased:

100% home loan

If you have secured yourself a 100% home loan from the bank, the maximum amount you can withdraw from your EPF account will be 10% of the property’s price to help you pay with other upcoming fees.

Buying a home on your own

If you are buying a property on your own, you are allowed to withdraw the difference between the loan amount approved and the price of property, with an additional of 10% property’s price. Or you could withdraw all your money in Account 2, whichever that is lower and more than RM500.

Buying a home with your spouse or family member

If you are buying a property with one of your immediate family members or wife, you are allowed to withdraw the difference between the loan amount approved and the price of property, with an additional of 10% property’s price. Or you could choose to withdraw money from both your and your wife’s or family member’s Account 2, whichever that is lower and not lesser than RM500.

Buying with only cash and no loan

If you are not applying for any bank loans and intend to pay with cash, your withdrawal limit would be the property’s price with additional 10% or all your money in Account, whichever than is lower and not lesser than RM500.


Lastly, you will need to bring along these documents when you apply to withdraw money from your EPF account to purchase a house:
KWSP 9C (AHL) (D5), could be done online or fill in the form that can be found onlineIdentification CardBank StatementSale and Purchase AgreementProof of relationship to your family members if you are applying for joint applicationsCertificate of Fitness (for new developments)Dead of Assignment (for property with no title)
Make sure you prepare and complete all the documents beforehand to avoid getting your application rejected.


With all the advantages it will come with disadvantages as well. There are a few limitations if you wish to withdraw money from your EPF account to buy a house:

Prohibited for investment purpose

You are not allowed to withdraw money from your EPF account to buy properties for investment purpose. Your application might be revoked if they found out that there is a transfer in ownership of your property within one year.

Second homes

In order to apply for withdrawal to buy your second home, you will first need to sell off your previous property and provide a proof.

Renovation
