Important issues that may come up in the selection of a mortgage loan
- What is the amount that you may set aside for a monthly installment under the loan depending on the amount of your monthly income?
- What could be the maximum tenor of your mortgage loan?
- What could be the amount of your monthly installment?
- What would be the prepayment fee in case you decide to repay your loan ahead of schedule?
- What are all fees accompanying loan granting?
- What are the necessary documents that you must submit?
- How long the approval procedure would take?
- Does the type of collateral matter (brick / panel, village house, vacation property or a land plot) for determining the percentage of financing?
- What is the interest rate type – is it a variable interest rate or the loan covers also a period with a fixed interest rate?
What is the mortgage loan amount that you can afford?
Prior to start looking for a real property that you plan to purchase with a loan it is important to know the amount of the loan that you might have at your disposal during purchase.
The two basic ratios applied by the Banks upon determining loan amount are the following:
- Debt to income ratio:
Serves for calculating the maximum loan amount that you may repay, based on your monthly income and your costs under existing loans (in percentage).
Example: Net monthly income: BGN 1 000* 40% debt-income ratio = BGN 400 monthly obligations under credit product-related installments
- Maximum loan to value ratio:
Serves for calculating the maximum amount of the loan that you may obtain against the value of loan collateral. The maximum loan to value ratio differs depending on the loan purpose.
Example: Market value of collateral: BGN 100 000 * 80% max. % of financing =
BGN 80 000 maximum loan amount, depending on collateral.
