Construction loan

You wish to finance the construction or renovation of a property by paying for the building work as it progresses? The construction loan is the solution.

The interest is calculated on the amount of the loan actually used
The bank pays the invoices in line with the progress of the building work
The construction loan can be partially consolidated before the end of the building work

The essentials

For the construction, renovation or transformation of a property

You finance your construction or renovation by means of a current account which is debited with the invoice amounts submitted as the building work progresses. When the building work is finished, the loan is consolidated into a mortgage loan. The interest due for the duration of the construction loan (construction loan interest) is included in the consolidation.

Interest is calculated fairly
