Take housing company’s loan in your own name

Renovation coming up in your housing company? Does the financial consideration you are paying to the housing company seem too high? If you take your share of the housing company loan in your own name, you get two advantages: you can tailor the monthly payment to suit your finances and you get a tax benefit.

Housing company loan in your own name Features Prices Terms and conditions Housing company loan in your own name

  • Usually when a housing company takes out a renovation loan, the shareholders will repay it gradually to the housing company as a part of the financial consideration.
  • The terms and conditions for a housing company loan, however, are the same for all shareholders, and therefore you cannot influence the amount of financial consideration that you will eventually have to pay. 
  • By taking out a personal loan from Nordea for paying off your share of the housing company loan, you can decide on a loan repayment schedule that best suits your situation.
Features

A personal loan has many advantages compared to the housing company loan.

  • We tailor the loan period and other terms in accordance with your needs. Compare: The terms of housing company loans are the same for everyone, and the financial consideration may become too high to manage for some shareholders.
  • The interest on a personal loan taken out for home acquisition and renovation is tax deductible. Compare: You cannot deduct the interest of a housing company loan in your personal taxation.
  • If your financial situation changes, you can change the repayment schedule by, for example, using instalment-free months. Compare: With a housing company loan a single shareholder’s situation cannot be catered to.

There are several options for converting a housing company loan into a personal loan. The property management company will give you information on the terms of the housing company loan, the amount of your share and the payment dates.

Consumers are not granted loans in any other currency than euro.

A housing loan is considered to be currency credit if the loan is granted in a foreign currency other than that of the EU Members State or the state of belonging to the European Economic Area where the consumer resides. Furthermore, a housing loan is considered to be foreign currency credit if the consumer receives his or her income in another currency of a state of the European Economic Area or in currency of a state of European Economic Area.

A foreign exchange risk occurs when the borrower's income or assets to be used to repay the credit are not in the same currency as the credit or the credit is not in the currency of borrower's country of residence. A foreign exchange risk refers to the change in price of one currency in relation to another. During the loan period, the value of the credit or the monthly payment may increase in relation to the borrower's income or assets or the currency of the borrower's country of residence. If the foreign currency of the borrower's country of residence, income or assets falls by 20 per cent in relation to the euro, the borrower receives a warning that the borrower's loan amount will increase in borrower's national currency.
