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 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:

  • A fixed rate of 2.25% p.a. until June 2020; 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.

Processing Fee Refund

A full refund of the Processing Fee is applicable if you are buying your first property or changing your existing primary residence.

 

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 laon 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 original repayment schedule. 

Personal Loan

In addition to the Home Loan, you can apply for a Personal Loan3 to finance any personal requirements which you might have. Features of the Personal Loan include:

  • A term up to 10 years (not exceeding 65 years of age);
  • Loan amount between €5,000 and €20,000;
  • An interest rate of:
    • 4.99% p.a. (made up of the Bank's Base Rate2 and a spread of 2.49% p.a.) in the case of a secured Personal Loan
    • 5.25% p.a. (made up of the Bank's Base Rate2 and a spread of 2.75% p.a.) in the case of an unsecured Personal Loan.

Equity Release Loan
