The influential People Daily have some new breaking news about PHF – quote – Following the interest rate hike, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development announced it would raise the Public Housing Fund mortgage rate for home buyers by a quarter of a percentage point. It will take effect this Wednesday.

The rate for loans with a maturity of five years or less under the scheme would be raised to 3 and 3 quarters of a percent. Meanwhile the rate for loans with a maturity of over five years would be raised to 4.3 percent.

The PHF as a very solid acceptance qualification this is how it works for low and medium income earners they set in place a payment gateway to pay 5 to 12 per cent of their wages into the Public Housing Fund, then by law the employer has to pay an identical amount from 5% to 12% of the employees wage to the PHF

‘PHF a good system that has worked well in China since the 1990s!’
