BFS grants homeownership to a House Occupant

Having taken over more than 52 thousand highly-defaulted loans from the National Home Mortgage Corporation in 2005, BFS constantly seeks settlement options with the hopes that borrowers will be able to finally be proud owners of the homes they have been occupying.  As a result, BFS has resolved over 40 thousand home mortgages and provided homes to more than 200 thousand Filipinos. In some instances, those occupying these homes are not original borrowers but individuals who have assumed habitation.  Such assumptions of occupancy do not give the new individuals rights to the homes as the mortgages still need to be settled.  In some cases however, extenuating circumstances deny such individuals from being able to procure the properties. Such a circumstance was that experienced by Pandaan’s family of Dasmarinas, Cavite.  They received a letter from BFS asking them to settle the mortgage attached to their occupied property.  BFS granted Ramon Pandaan a highly-discounted settlement amount in order to settle the obligation.  After processing the documentation and making the proper payment, the Pandaan family now has legal ownership of the house in which they brought up their family. BFS has offices in Bonifacio Global City and Davao City, servicing clients who...

BFS helps those in need

Very few circumstances can be more terrifying than facing unexpected family circumstances.  This is further compounded when those affected live on limited incomes, and the unanticipated expenses can leave family members feeling insecure about their future. BFS, the pioneering mortgage servicer in the Philippines, has a program for property buyers who face such life-altering conditions.  With the Social Case Window, BFS is able to grant additional waivers on property sales prices after processing applications by eligible buyers. Thanks to this program, Adrian and Melanie Mariano of Golden City Subdivision in Dasmarinas, Cavite are now the proud owners of the house they have been living in for many years. Due to an unexpected pregnancy, Melanie fell into unemployment while her spouse was able to continue working at the Bureau of Fire Protection.  With the impending arrival of a child, their income would barely cover their basic needs.  But the couple wanted to secure a home for their growing family and learned from the cousin of Melanie’s mother that BFS was homes at affordable prices. The Marianos made an offer below the selling price for the property but BFS responded with a slightly higher settlement amount.  With dignity, Adrian decided to...

BFS settles longstanding loans in Cavite

Many BFS borrowers in Cavite have a lot in common.  Other than being single career women, they are incessant savers, and have occupied properties with long outstanding mortgages.  Managed by BFS, these mortgages dated back to the 1990s and were severely delinquent for over 20 years. These borrowers were constantly contacted by BFS to settle their obligations as the company assured these ladies that legal homeownership was the way to go.  They were delighted when they received the Home Saver Offer.   Armed with savings and the will to settle, they discussed their offers with BFS and reached agreements to finally pay off their loans.  Despite the final amounts being lower than what was provided in the Home Saver Offer, BFS granted their settlements. BFS’ Home Saver Offer is only one of the many programs the Philippines’ pioneering mortgage servicer has to offer.  Situated in Bonifacio Global City and Davao City, the company designs innovative ways to settle outstanding mortgages from its portfolio of over 52 thousand loans from the National Home Mortgage Finance...

BFS helps former clients secure a home for their daughter

Few things bring more pride to parents than being able to buy a home for their child.  Such was the case for Concordia Llamera who wanted to buy a townhouse for her daughter which was close to her own home. Mr. and Mrs. Llamera are pensioners who get additional financial support from their two children.  They are proud owners of a BFS townhouse they acquired in 2004 and wanted to gift their child with the same.  After identifying a townhouse just three doors down from their own, their knowledgeable Account Specialist walked them through the BFS Fruits Of Your Labor program which provides affordable pre-owned homes to interested buyers. The Llameras found not only that the pricing was reasonable and within their budget, but that the processing of their documents by their Account Specialist was quick and efficient.  They advise each potential buyer to conduct due diligence on his intended property, its documentation, and the payment of its real property taxes in order to make an informed purchase. BFS is the country’s premier mortgage servicing company with offices in Bonifacio Global City and Davao...
