HOW IT WORKS

The construction loan is a current account credit facility. After you have paid your own funds If you have a construction project or are purchasing
a main residence in Switzerland, own funds
(2nd pillar, 3rd pillar, savings, gift, etc.)
must amount to at least 20% of the value of the property.
into the account, we will use your credit to pay for the land purchase and settle all bills in connection with a wide range of work during the construction phase.

OUR ROLE AS A BANK

YOUR INVOLVEMENT DURING CONSTRUCTION

 

INTEREST

The interest on your construction loan (interim interest) can be paid throughout the construction phase or included in the overall amount of your financing.

With this option, you can avoid having two sources of expenditure if you have rent to pay while waiting for your new home to be built.

 

CONSOLIDATION

Consolidation refers to the conversion of your construction loan into a long-term debt or, in other words, a mortgage.

 

There are various types of consolidation and solutions:

 

FULL CONSOLIDATION

Your construction loan is converted into a mortgage in one go at the end of the construction phase.
