If the credit is destined for the building of a house, the bank covers in proportion of 100% the construction expenses. For the construction loans, there can be offered a grace period of 24 months for reimbursing the loan. The credit is assured with the mortgage of the financed real estate asset.
The Cash Loan with Mortgage is a product destined to the financing of the general needs of the clients without the necessity of showing the bank, the destination of the loan. The credit is obtained through mortgaging a real estate asset (apartment/house/terrain) that belongs either to the client or to another person (relative/friend).
The maximum tenor is 30 years, and the top amount that can be borrowed is of 150,000 EUR or the equivalent. The Bank finances a maximum of 85% of the asset value - if the mortgaged asset is a house or an apartment, and 75% if it is a terrain.
