Ensure your home loan servicing costs for a fixed rate period
Interest rates have remained historic lows for several years now but it is hard to predict how they will develop in the years to come. Protect against higher interest rates for many years by choosing a fixed rate period for your home loan. You can choose a fixed interest rate period of less than 10 years for not only your new home loan but also your existing one.
If you wish, you can divide your loan into two parts – the fixed rate applies to the first part and the variable rate to the second part. This is how you can make use of the protection provided by the fixed interest rate period while freely amortising or paying off your variable-rate loan.
You will not incur any extra costs of the fixed interest rate period, if no changes are made to the loan. If, however, you want to repay early your fixed rate loan, for example, please contact your bank. Early repayment may involve costs if interest rates have fallen.
Whom does the Fixed Rate Period suit?
The fixed interest rate period suits you if you want to ensure that the servicing costs of your loan remain the same for a period suitable to you. The fixed rate period is available for both new and existing home loans.
If you want to choose the fixed interest rate period for your existing home loan, please contact your OP cooperative bank at op.fi or call OP telephone service at 010 253 1333 (local charge/mobile charge) and book an appointment for an online meeting or at a bank branch.
