Restructuring your current debt is easy.

The most important facts in brief

  • The fixed-interest period for most real estate loans expires after 5, 10 or 15 years. Ususally, there is then still a residual debt, and refinancing your mortgage is necessary.
  • In addition, 10 years after full payment of the mortage you have a special right of termination in Germany, irrespective of the fixed interest rate.
  • 3 months before the fixed interest rate period expires, your bank provides you with an offer for prolongation.
  • Comparing pays off and is easier than you think!

 

Current interest rates are so attractively low that many homeowners would like to get rid of their loan early and restructure their debts. By refinancing the mortgage you can get a better interest rate with a new bank and potentially save many thousands of Euros.

Period

Scope for action

The credit agreement has been running for more than 10 years?

You can terminate and refinance your mortgage at any time with a notice period of 6 months.

Only 12 months left until the fixed interest rate expires?

You can either stay with the same bank and extend the loan (rollover) or terminate the contract now and carry out a debt restructuring.

Your mortgage will expire in the next five years, but will still last longer than 12 months?

You still cannot terminate the mortgage, but you can take out a forward loan to pay off the remaining debt later.
