It allows citizens to register with the Ministry and apply online via the Internet, for a new house, rental accommodation, squatter regularization or home improvement loans.
Apply for a Service
It involves the following simple steps :
Registering with the Ministry of Housing. The registration process allows the applicant to create an account along with a username and password that allows them access to their individual account in the HAFS database.
Creating an account requires the entry of basic rsonal information by the applicant. Both the principal applicant and the co-applicant(s) are required to create individual accounts.
personal information by the applicant. Both the principal applicant and the co-applicant(s) are required to create individual accounts.
Updating Personal, Financial and Demographic information
After creating an account, the applicant completes entry of his/her personal, demographic and financial information.
The financial information is critical as it is evaluated by HAFS to determine if an applicant(s) financially qualify for the service being requested. Both the principal and co-applicant(s) are required to enter their financial information.
Create & Submit an application
After creating an account, the principal applicant must enter and submit an application (form) for the service being requested.
During this step, the principal applicant indicates the service required by selecting the appropriate application type and the Agency providing the service.
For example, if an applicant is applying for a new home, he/she will select, “New Home Mortgage” as the Service/Solution required and either “National Housing Authority” or “Sugar Industries Labour Welfare Committee” as the Agency providing the service.
The information required to complete an application is dependent on the service being requested. Thus, some application forms will take longer to complete as additional information must be entered.
Upon submission, an application is assigned a unique Application Reference Number that will be used by the principal applicant to access the application. If the principal applicant is the only applicant, the application is completed and ready for processing by the relevant Agency.
Becoming a Co-Applicant of an application requires the co-applicant attaching their account to an existing application.
The principal applicant must provide the co-applicant with the Application Reference Number of the application to which they are to become a co-applicant. Once the co-applicant(s) have attached his/her account(s) to the application, the application is completed and ready for processing by the relevant Agency.
