Home Loan Offer


 

Benefits

You may benefit from this Home Loan Offer if you're:

  • Buying your first property;
  • Changing your primary residence; or
  • Buying your second residence;

as long as the purchased property will be used for your personal residential requirements.

You will be able to use the loan for the purchase, construction, completion, reconstruction, alteration or improvement of the property you will be purchasing.  Kitchens, photovoltaic panels, air conditioning systems and solar water heaters are considered as part of completion works.

 

How it works

Loan Amount

  • The loan amount will depend on the level of income and the value of the property;
  • You will be requested to contribute 10% of the total project cost for loan amounts up to €700,000;
  • A 20% contribution of the total cost of the project will be requested for loan amounts above €700,000.

Term of Loan

The loan can be taken for a term until you reach the age of 65 years, giving you the possibility of repaying your loan throughout your working life.  This will help you lower your monthly repayments over a longer loan term.  

Interest Rates

Advantageous rates are applicable throughout the duration of the term as follows. You may choose one of the following 2 options depending on which suits your needs:

Option 1:

  • A fixed rate of 1.95% p.a. for a maximum of 24 months until March 2021; and 
  • A variable rate of 2.99% p.a. (made up of the Home Loan Base Rate1 and a spread of 0.79% p.a.) for the remaining term of the loan (APRC of 2.95%).

Option 2:

  • A fixed rate of 2.59% p.a. for a maximum of 48 months until March 2023; and 
  • A variable rate of 2.99% p.a. (made up of the Home Loan Base Rate1 and a spread of 0.79% p.a.) for the remaining term of the loan (APRC of 2.99%).

Repayments

Repayments are scheduled monthly throughout the term of the loan. You also have the possibility to repay this loan early, either fully or partially as follows:

  • Early repayments may be affected by notifying the Bank in advance; 
  • In case of partial early repayments, the monthly repayment amount and any applicable costs may be adjusted, however the term of the loan will remain unaltered;
  • In the case of full early repayment during the fixed interest rate period, an early repayment fee of 1% will be charged on the balance due to BNF Bank based on the original repayment schedule. 

Equity Release Loan

In addition to the Home Loan, you may also opt for an Equity Release Loan to finance any personal requirements you might have. Features of the Equity Release Loan include:

  • A term up to 25 years (not exceeding 65 years of age);
  • An interest rate of 3.99% p.a. (made up of the Bank's Base Rate2 and a spread of 1.49% p.a.)
