Here’s few of the more common phrases you might come across.

  • Bridge financing. This technique is helpful when you have closing dates that don’t coincide. For example, if you need to pay for a new location one month earlier than you get the money from the old one, some special (or bridge) financing might be in order. Remember, you’ll need to pay for this with higher interest rates since these temporary situations cost the banks in extra documentation and labor.
  • Building Permit. You’ll need to get one of these if and when you plan on doing some renovation work. Before a building can be changed, repaired or erected, you’ll need to get one of these from your local municipality and erect it in a conspicuous place.

Being well informed is the best prerequisite to buying a new home and having Islamic finance is a great start. However, you do need to go a little further and research out conventional mortgage terms as well.
