In case of income loss, what should be done when the interest rate can´t be paid back?

Banks are perfectly aware, that liquidity difficulties will increase over the following weeks. In order to assist you properly in those challenging times and to take care of your problems, namely paying off your well-deserved homestead, several of our banking partners offer the following solutions:

Suspension of repayment:

What does that mean? The monthly loan repayment will be suspended for a specific period. During this time, merely your monthly loan interest shall be incurred. Often, this kind of option is already regulated by the loan agreement. In addition, there are some banking institutes which are currently willing to find individual financial solutions for you.

Deferral of loan repayment:

Deferral ol loan repayment means that the complete amount of annuity (interest rate and redemption) shall be suspended. The remaining rate will be attached to the original maturity date.

Change of repayment rate:

In case you have agreed on a higher repayment rate with the option of changing the rate by contract, you can now reduce your redemption in an easy way. Most banks offer a minimum rate of repayment by around 1%. Please note, by reducing the repayment rate the initial loan duration will be extended. Furthermore, in many cases you can only once change the repayment rate within the fixed-interest period. Should you increase repayment after the crisis, it cannot be ruled out, that the further process depends on your bank´s goodwill.

Please bear in mind, banks respond differently to the corona crisis, and the provided options differ from bank to bank.

Should you experience a period of financial difficulties, you should take immediate action. Please contact your bank or us. At any time, we are glady available by phone. And we will do everything possible to find the right solution for you.

We wish you and your family to stay healthy and that you will soon emerge from this crisis without any damage.
