The amount of the monthly instalment

The sum of the monthly instalments depends on several factors:

  • The amount of the interest rate and fluctuations thereof - the lower the interest rate, the lower the monthly instalment;
  • Period of the loan — the longer the term, the lower the monthly instalment.

Schedules of loan repayment

Schedules of loan repayment

Annuity payments: during the validity term of the loan agreement payments of the principal sum and interest are separated into as equal payments as possible. Amount of the monthly instalment will be constant in the respective period of the interest rate change.

Linear payments: payment of the principal sum remains constant during the validity term of the loan, but interest is calculated from the unpaid part of the loan.

The interest rate of the loan

Variable interest rate will be applied to your loan, consisting of:

1) Base rate - variable part of the interest rate. You will be able to choose either a short-term or a long-term interest rate.

  • Short-term interest rate is determined for 3, 6, 12 months. It is usually lower than the long-term interest rate, but it fluctuates depending on the market situation (every 3, 6 or 12 months respectively), thus it will be more difficult for you to plan your expenses, but in the case of a favourable market situation you might be the winner.
  • Long-term interest rate is determined for a period of 2 to 5 years; usually it is higher than the variable rate, but remains constant for a longer period of time. Thus, you can reduce your risk, because the interest rate cannot change frequently.

Information on inter-bank rates (money value in the market)!

2) Margin rate - fixed part of the loan interest rate, and main criteria for the determination of the amount of the interest rate are:

  • Stability of income and the capacity to prove it;
  • Previous cooperation with SEB bank, performance of liabilities;
  • Total amount of liabilities;
  • Amount of the first instalment;
  • Collateral on the loan — market value of the property.
