Lower debt service or the option to speed up asset formation? Landsbankinn offers two types of loans, inflation-indexed and non-indexed, and interest rates can be fixed or variable.
Indexed or non-indexed?
Inflation-indexed loans are linked to inflation, meaning that the principal of the loan can increase early in the loan term. This leads to slower asset formation. While the principal may increase due to inflation, this does not necessarily mean that your financial position is worse, because real estate prices tend to follow inflation in the long term. Interest rates on indexed loans are generally low and debt service lower.
Non-indexed loans are not linked to inflation, meaning that the loan never increases, merely decreasing steadily over the loan term. This results in quicker asset formation and lower instalments as the loan term progresses. Interest rates on non-indexed loans are generally higher than on indexed loans and, as a result, debt service can be considerably higher in the beginning.
What is the difference between fixed and variable interest rates?
Variable rates can increase and decrease in line with market fluctuations and the economic environment, based on the current interest rate tariff at each time. This may be favourable or not, depending on how the rates fluctuate.
With fixed rates, you tie your rates for a specified period and hedge against interest rate fluctuations. Rates can be fixed for 36 or 60-month periods. Fixed-rate loans carry a pre-payment charge.
We fund up to 80% of purchase price for up to 7 years and offer better terms on electric vehicles. A credit assessment is only required if the loan amount exceeds ISK 2,700,000 for individuals or ISK 5,400,000 for married or common-law couples.
