Marking three decades of service led banking, Seylan Bank has re-introduced its Home Loan facility with special advisory services and a multitude of benefits.
Seylan has adopted a new customer centric approach for remodelling its Home Loan facilities. Fueled by urbanisation, today there is a greater demand for affordable housing solutions in the country. Further strengthening Seylan’s focus on fulfilling customer needs, the Bank now offers a hassle-free home loan service to its customers.
Tilan Wijeysekara, Deputy GM Retail Banking, Seylan, sharing his thoughts on the new initiative commented, “Owning a home is one of the most significant aspirations of a person’s life. Thus, we want the process of acquisition to be easy, fast as well as affordable. People need realistic advice and fast services when investing in a property of their own”. “The improved Home Loan advisory service provided at most of the Seylan Bank branches across the island, is a key upgrade to our Home Loan facility. This enables us to understand and assist customers who intend to own a house of their own”, he further added.
Seylan Home Loan Open Day is yet another significant initiative launched under the Bank’s revamped Home Loan facility and the first Open Day was held at its Battaramulla branch. The Bank’s specially trained team of Home Loan advisors; including the credit processing and approval teams assist customers in identifying the best approach when investing in a house. The team is dedicated to guide customers to select the most economic payment plan and handle necessary documentation. Without burdening customers financially, Seylan offers competitive fixed rates, which spans up to ten years.
