How much can I borrow?

The amount of the loan will be determined according to your ability to repay.

In addition to the purchase price or the cost of building the home, the Fund's credit may also cover certain costs such as renovation work or legal fees. In certain cases, and if the Fund considers it justified, the credit can reach 120% of the value of the property, if necessary after the work has been carried out.

How is the interest rate set?

Your income and family situation determine the interest rate of your mortgage. In order to ensure transparency and stability, our loans are granted at a fixed interest rate in constant or progressive monthly instalments.

What is a progressive monthly payment?

It is a monthly payment that increases each year by a certain percentage, in this case 1%, which is normally lower than the inflation rate.

Your family situationMinimum rateMaximum rate
0 dependants3,85 %5 %
1 dependant3,65 %5 %
2 dependants*.3,45 %5 %
3 or more dependants3,25 %5 %

 *Or when all borrowers are under 40 years old.

How long will my repayment be?

In principle, the maximum duration of the mortgage is 30 years, and it must be fully repaid by the time the youngest borrower reaches the age of 70.
