Good to know

Issues that need to be taken into account when contracting a loan:

  • Your revenues may vary. Please make sure that you can pay the monthly instalments, even if your revenues will decrease.
  • In case of loans with variable interest rate there is an interest rate risk. This risk is generated by the variation mentioned in the reference indexes as a component of the interest rate, which can raise the interest rate and increase the monthly instalment.
  • In case of loans in foreign currency there is a currency risk. This risk is generated by the possibility of depreciation of the national currency against the loan currency.
