*Annual percentage rate: standard examples

The annual percentage rate of a housing loan is 2.983% per annum on these sample terms: loan amount € 30 000, variable interest rate 6-month Euribor + 2.5% per annum (as at 13 June 2014, the 6-month Euribor was 0.326%; the Euribor rate specified in the contract may change every 6 months) and a contract fee of € 300, paid upon concluding the contract.

The rate is calculated on the assumption that the loan amount is used in full immediately and that its principal and interest are repaid in monthly annuity payments over 30 years. The rate does not include the costs of collateralisation or insurance.

Assuming the above, the total amount paid by the consumer is € 45 066.12, with a monthly payment of € 124.35 and a total of 360 repayments.

Before concluding a contract, we recommend that you carefully review the terms and conditions of this financial service of the bank and, if needed, consult a specialist at our bank.
