  • Building account in current account form

    You can finance your construction project with a construction loan in current account form. We grant you a variable interest loan on the building account. Once the construction work has been completed, your loan debt on the building account is repaid by your mortgage. You are left with a mortgage debt.

    Partial consolidation

    You can convert a part of your construction loan into a mortgage before building work is complete.

    Options

    You are free to use the available financing limit both before and throughout the construction phase:

    • As a current account in your variable rate building account
    • As a mortgage with a free choice from the full range of mortgages on offer with differing interest rate commitments
  • Current interest rate (for new business)
