TECOM Investments and Amlak Finance Launch Off-plan Islamic Financing for Villa Lantana Residential Community
TECOM Investments has signed an agreement with Amlak Finance, the UAE’s first specialised real estate finance provider, to offer Shari’a compliant financing options via its Amlak Tatweer program to all purchasers of freehold Villa Lantana homes, including non-resident and self-employed buyers.
Amlak will offer financing up to 50 per cent of the property value prior to project handover, with the option to re-finance up to 75 per cent upon completion for tenures of up to 25 years at highly competitive rates, enabling more investors and end-users to become part of the Villa Lantana community.
The agreement was signed by Badr Al Gargawi, Chief Executive Officer, Development & Planning Division, TECOM Investments, and Arif Alharmi, Managing Director and CEO of Amlak Finance PJSC.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Al Gargawi said, “We are proud to be working with Amlak Finance to provide a Shari’a compliant option for people to own their dream home at Villa Lantana. A big part of TECOM Investments’ ethos when planning a new development is to engage with our stakeholders to ensure we deliver in line with market and consumer requirements. They told us that they needed a forward thinking, tailored Islamic finance option - and this is exactly what Amlak Tatweer offers.”
The new Villa Lantana development of 440 freehold family villas represents an astute investment opportunity, in part due to its key location in Dubai’s Al Barsha growth corridor in addition to the established reputation of its master developer, TECOM Investments.
Mr. Alharmi commented, “Amlak is pleased to be partnering with TECOM Investments to offer these tailored and easy financing solutions for those wishing to own a property at Villa Lantana. Our Tatweer product is a perfect match for such an impressive development. We continually strive to provide prospective investors with innovative Islamic finance solutions.”
